comment What is the/Is there a right way to tell management that our code sucks?
@Robert French +1 for a good answer. It is important for Azkar to under stand the business as well as the technology. Suggesting he form his own opinion from the observations of a highly qualified 3rd person will help in Azkar's development as a developer, and not just a coder. Besides, the PB&J story is funny.

comment How do you tell if advice from a senior developer is bad?
@learnjourney When I was a new developer, a much wiser Senior Developer once told me that it was a good idea if I left my ego at the door. It's the best advice I've ever received. If you have a different idea, then bring it up and be prepared to defend it, but if the senior person overrules it then hold your nose and just write the code the way that they want. If they won't budge on an idea then bring it up to your manager that you would like a new mentor, or find a new job.
