Why Is So Much Code So Bad?
I've been in the position to read a lot of code written by many different developers. And most of it is terrible. When I first noticed this I figured I was being too hard on the developers, they didn't have as much experience as I did, they didn't get any training, nobody else on the team was capable of mentoring them, etc. But after many years of seeing the same stuff I just have to assume that big ball of mud procedural coding is the state of the practice for the average developer, even those with many years of experience. Why is this? And more important, how can we change this? Personally I find the best way to improved someone's coding ability is to pair with them extensively on a real project (hands on mentoring). But this only works if the project team is really small. I can't pair extensively with everyone on an 8 person team. Training seems like a possible solution, although it seems to have limited usefulness. Ultimately I think it comes down to an individual's drive and ...

SPAM Ban - UK tightens control
Finally a country that has made the independent decision to ban SPAM. The United Kingdom has announced that sending unsolicited e-mails is now a criminal offense. "From Thursday, senders of unwanted e-mails face fines under EU Privacy and Electronic Communications regulations unless the recipient has agreed in advance to accept the messages. " CNN The law does allow email to be sent with an opt-out clause....EH? The spam that we all recieve has an opt-out clause, which in-turn gives the spammer the confirmation that your email account does exist; subscribing you to additional external spam lists. A step in the correct direction for the English, but loop holes in the system will make the new law almost insignificant. Our 2 pence....

What Makes A "Good" Company Different From Any Other?
I haven't had that many jobs in my life, but as a contractor for 13 years I've been in numerous companies and talked to lots of people about how much they liked their jobs. Believe it or not, the biggest reason I've found for job dissatisfaction is management. Almost everyone is mostly happy with their co-workers, work challenges, pay, benefits etc. Almost always, they complain about their supervisors, the executives, and especially the investment board. I'm not sure it is totally management, since many people (myself included) have worked for really good managers. I think there is also some correlation to the number of levels of management. At one time I worked for a “good” company with about 100 employees. We enjoyed a 90%+ retention rate before the dotcom bubble peaked. There was 1 level of management between me (the worker bee) and the CEO, some people had 2 levels. This company was sold to a much larger company for a lot of money (really good timing on the owner's part). I now ...

the million dollar question
Paul Wilson has asked me what seems to be by far the most common question about ObjectSpaces: “Will it support other databases besides Sql Server... i.e Oracle, Access, etc?” For V1 of ObjectSpaces, which will ship as part of the Whidbey release of Visual Studio, only Sql Server 2000 and Yukon will be supported. However, that said, we have designed an underlying architecture that could be extended to other datasources, even non-relational datasources. At this time there are no plans to do so, but it is a very interesting topic being discussed by a number of people inside Microsoft. Of course, once anything becomes official - I will definitely blog about it.

I Want A New Toy
For those of you who have chosen a skin other than the default, there's a new Christmas skin available! You can skin TECHFLUID using the "Skin TECHFLUID" pull-down menu near the top of the right-hand column. It's fun, fast and won't make your skin flake. I promise. Just so you know, pixel sphinx from Blogmoxie [their site is so retro-cool] set that nifty little thing up for me. She is a creative genious. You can tell her I said so. Oh -- and to the nasty little spammer-weiner in my comments who can't seem to get penis enlargement out of his in-the-gutter, smaller than a pin head mind: Get a life, you stupid moron. Normal people do think of things other than the size of their Johnson.

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking, and I’ve come to conclusion that is, well, a little bit heartbreaking for me. I think it’s time to officially pack up the Julie/Julia Project. This thing was always meant to last a year and no more. I knew that. What I didn’t know, when I started, was how much I would come to rely upon the feedback and encouragement and just plain daily greatness of all of you who’ve so inexplicably agreed to go through this thing with me. I am sure that keeping the blog limping along past its useful life is no good to anyone involved, and the last thing I want to do is jump the shark; I know it’s time to go. But that doesn’t mean I’m necessarily happy about it. So I was out at lunch yesterday, and Julia Roberts was sitting at the next table, and maybe that’s why I’ve got all these stupid Pretty Woman quotes in my head. Well, paraphrases, I guess. Remember that bit where she says to Richard Gere something like “You’ve changed me, and you can’t change me back”? ...
