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.
