Interestingly, it's the middle management in this company that forces us to use the "Boy Scout Rule" (under an even crazier name). The reasons? The low management is content with the "getting job done", as they've been for the last ten years. As a result, it's almost impossible to hire a new programmer who wouldn't flee in a couple of months. The code is ugly to touch, untested, uncommented, copypasted, cargoculted, etc. The "technical debt" is so huge they're able to measure it in cash. So, our team was hired to make things move, to improve the situation, bring in new technologies, show new tricks to the old dogs (read: rewrite everything in Java). We teach them why testing is needed, what advantages git has over CVS, how code review helps all the participants. I'm still unsure we can make it; and so are my colleagues: three of my five closest coworkers already left for greener pastures.
