( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Shocked look? Hardly. I work for a tier 1 automotive supplier in their "Technology Development" group, incharge of developing new projects within our current platforms, and I'm one of two with a CS degree, except for our manager, and he probably hasn't written a line of code for about 7 years. When I start talking about passing pointers, scope and polymorphism, everyone gets that blank stare that roughly equates too "I know everything you just said was english, but I'm sorry, most of it didn't register as having any meaning."

It's frustrating, really. I work really hard to set a good example to those in the group coming from MIS and that think VB is the end all be all of the programming lingua franca (Not that I have a problem with VB, use it myself sometimes, but...). Things like:

  • - Use good structure, for others would like to read it.
  • - Use comments, for others would like to understand it.
  • - Have others read your code, for none of us are infallible
  • - Please, ask questions, as we know more as a group than we do singularly

But it doesn't always stick. *sigh*

    [erix]: that's an old plan, I think. Isn't there already a danewal (or some such name)?
    [marto]: Build with -Wall
    [erix]: Danewerk
    [LanX]: I seem to remember that the danewall was build by the Frankish empire against the Danes
    [erix]: 500 AD thru viking age
    [erix]: that would make sense but wikipedia thinks otherwise
    [LanX]: oh me was wrong ...
    [erix]: but it always works both ways of course
    [LanX]: Funny some weeks ago, I met people from the Cimbrian peninsula who didn't know it's called the Cimbrian peninsula ...
