At the new gig

Posted on June 24, 2009 by Steve

Things are proceeding well enough at the new place. The commute, at 23 miles, is a bit longer but much more tolerable, generally going against traffic and at speed. At yesterday's fill-up I recorded my first 40 mpg tank.

While waiting for my paperwork to be processed so I can log in and get some work done, I've been browsing some user manuals to get familiar with the work. There's more than a whiff of "your tax dollars at work" maintaining a labyrinthine bureaucracy. The change request process at the private software company I left was, essentially, QA or someone enters an issue and assigns it to a developer, who then takes care of it. This, with many acronyms and names redacted, is the CR process here:

I also stole a glance at some source code, and was pleased to see comments, regions, reasonable formatting, and even some ternary operators! Granted, the output arguments were true and false, but you can't have everything.
