In Topic: getting fired in software industry

29 April 2016 - 05:22 PM

I think if the person who wrote the code still works for the company and its not clear what the code does to the extent you have to ask an anal amount of questions then that person should really be carrying some responsibility for maintaining it. No doubt the person who wrote it has been in the company for some time and his/her opinion carries a lot of weight. Better for that person to indicate you don't know what you're doing than to admit their code sucks.


getting fired for asking to many questions is absurd. Would a company rather you made the incorrect assumption or wasted time debugging code when you can "just ask"?

In Topic: Man vs Machine,The Hype: machine is beginning to win

The human player should be spending his evenings coming up with a radical new strategy, he would certainly win then even if its a suboptimal strategy vs a human. I think back to when Riker rescued Picard, the Borg lost because the experience to deal with the unorthodox strategy didn't exist.

Rapidly changing technology is harder to monetize, standardizing formats and channels is a pita. This is why we are stuck with javascript/html/css. Look how far games have come compared to browsers / websites. We are still living in the 90's. Any douch can speed it up
