comment Is having C++ header files without extension a good practice?
@SteveJessop: You are right. Actually, he claims that he follows Qt conventions, and I believe he does most of the time. But from time to time, it seems that someone (not necessarily him) adds a file and doesn't follow the convention anymore, resulting in a highly inconsistent layout.

@ArjunShankar: It is someone from a different team (not even in the same building). We don't have document, but I am in charge of designing the build environment, but we have some history and I regularly have to make decisions about including or not other team's habits in the global environment.

@Justin: Neither do I. I have nothing against Qt. I even think it is an amazing library but some of their design choices really feels wrong to me.

comment What can one do when “lead by example” doesn't work?
@gbjaanb: Thanks for sharing your experiences. Obviously, too much change can bring as much trouble (if not more) that a lack of change. However, in my situation, the tools and code style haven't changed in 10 years. As in many things, I really think there is a good balance to find here.

@DJClayworth: The VSS repository is only used as a basic storage system. Nobody ever looks at the history and they usually erase everything before copying the entire directory again.

@Kyralessa: My bad. I said 8000 developers when I meant 8000 employees. Must be more around 1500 developers.

@gbjbaanb: Not sure why you seem so shocked by the "Git to VSS" thing. Sure it's not the most easy change to suggest and I mainly did it for my own sake because, as you said, VSS is very broken. I actually still got my job done, no worries. I usually do it faster, because of the improvements and design decisions I made so it buys me time to remain up-to-date regarding new techs.

@TC1: I already did job interviews and was offered a job several times. However the salary gap was so big I couldn't accept it (My girlfriend is still a student and I have to pay for both of us). I won't resign to stagnation however: I work on many open-source projects and always find some time to keep-up with the new tools/principles. I just wonder if I can "fix" my current job before throwing it away too fast.

@DougT.: I would agree with you. I don't believe age is the problem. The guy in question is not that much older: he is just unable to recognize his own weaknesses.

Thank you. To be honest, at first, when I came, for some weeks I was all: "What the hell, these guys have no clue !" then realized how wrong I was on many points. But after two years there, I am pretty sure some processes can be improved, and could solve many of the complaints I heard. I understand it is also a matter of opinion but if someone came to me with evidence that I'm doing something inefficient, I would at least listen to the guy because he is doing me a favor. My departement is only composed of 40 people, and only us do this kind of development.
