Lean, Kanban, Agile Pairing, TDD (sometimes test after) software architect and programmer. Worked with distributed (called cloud sometimes) computing services since 2007 using phat data (8 billion rows of data on an AVERAGE day, sometimes called big data) and everything from business intelligence to the nitty gritty of array structures inside file based data stores to create caching tiers for custom software needs. Currently pushing for distributed technologies & improving software architecture, better data centers, the best software development practices and keeping everything secure in the financial industry again.

    First things first… it’s TOO not “To” in “there are way to many ands in that sentence” – and actually – although a clumsy sentence, both connectors ‘and’ were necessary.

    Jesus- I hate grammar wannabes the same way you apparently hate “agile” wannabes. Don’t comment on shit you know nothing about – or risk sounding illiterate. I bet I can find a “your” that should be “YOU’RE” and a “there” that should be “THEIR” somewhere in your (not you’re) rant — too (not to…. not two)

    Ok – read your rant – and grammar aside, I totally agree with you. Two years ago I was involved with exactly such a know-it-all company trying to get a new vertical application to market. The “President” of this “Company” was a guy with bigshot credentials at Price-Waterhouse-Cooper… except… oops…. he hadn’t been there in 7-8 years and before that had bounced around between a dozen different jobs. My consulting firm was working for the investors in the application – so i got stuck working directly for this moron for two years, in which time he BARELY got the application to market after burning through almost $10,000,000…. and found a grand total of 5 clients, despite a nationwide sales effort. Why? Because at the end of the day, the app was a cluster-fuck, the UX sucked, the relationship with the development team sucked – and the boss so micro-managed everything that nobody he hired on the management team could do as much as schedule an appointment without his OK. It was the worst work experience I’ve had in 30 years in the tech industry. At the end of the day the investors lost all their money – the application is now in hibernation (total development moratorium and not adding new clients) – now it’s in even worse shape because nothing has been done to it in over two years. It’ll never be able to be taken back into the marketplace without a re-write. Idiots.
