Incompetence makes me very grumpy
Posted on 26/08/2009
You know I’m a pretty patient and accommodating person. But the one thing that makes my blood boil is incompetence. Clients come to us as digital experts for just that, expertise. The cowboys in this industry do nothing by make clients afraid of technology because they have been burned too many times. Right now I’m dealing with someone else’s code which has been handed to me for just this reason, the client has had enough. Calling it code is actually very forgiving on my part. They have not considered localisation properly and as such in many ways it would be better to throw it all away and start again.
The way I’m dealing with this is with a bit of Puccini. Soothes the savage beast and all.
