comment Discrete Math and Computing Course
I have computer science degree myself and work as a software developer. However, I wouldn't simplify things as "men" and "boys". I see it from this perspective: you may have skills as a software engineer that people who write "complex" algorithms don't have.

comment Discrete Math and Computing Course
what would people who buy libraries be less "manful" that the ones who write it? Programmers tackle complex problems everyday in different fields with different set of skills. Your answer is not helpful at all! -1

comment Why do we keep using CSV?
@Hans Good point. However, some developers, even senior ones I've met, prefer battles they know they can win. Sometimes you pick your battles. In some organizations, you don't have a chance. So, a choice should be made: code or politics. I tend to choose code :-)

comment Why do we keep using CSV?
@Stephen, I too work in the health care domain and is not exactly a top-notch industry in terms of best practices. A few weeks ago a client (an HMO) sent us data in PDF for us to import :-). CSV are usually sent to us in the incorrect layout no matter how many times we specify the layout to them. We are wasting a lot of time right now changing the layouts or our ETL jobs because of it. I'm telling you, I'm growing tired of it everyday. I hope your luck is way better than mine.

comment Should software engineers also act as tech support?
+1 I can relate to everything you said. I was in a similar position a few weeks ago. Now we don't have phone but they knock the door anyway, even for stuff like:"hey guys, have you seen X around?" geez!

comment “Build your own website” - Developing a CMS with Vague Requirements on a Tight Deadline
If it's a product offering, then you meant "customers". Either way, good luck.
