comment Trying to “combine” similar objects without doing a bazillion comparisons
There is another group of tables that determine what combination of attributes constitute a valid "access request". For some systems, it might just be a system name, on others it drills down to system, database or system, file share, permissions, etc. I don't recall all the bizarre combinations of attributes other than that it normally has fewer than 4 of them and sometimes has as many as 15.

@JarrodRoberson care to provide a link to some of those "ad-nauseum" discussions? I haven't found anything definitive.

comment How to best approach planning and budgeting of software performance optimization efforts?
Bigger lesson: developers need to realize they aren't perfect and debugging and optimization are supposed to be about making things better, not finding somebody to blame. Too bad the "owner" of the code didn't realize that. Sometimes I need to be reminded of that as well - I've gotten peeved at people improving my code, but I don't think I've ever stood in the way of an improvement.

comment Will Java still be relevant in 5 years?
Good post. Where do you see Go and maybe Dart in this spectrum?

comment What are the disadvantages of automated testing?
If the same developer is coding the tests as is coding the actual code, then they will only think of the same test cases to write tests for as the ones they thought about when they were coding.

comment I can't program because the code I am using uses old coding styles. Is this normal to programmers?
One of the most important skills you can develop as a programmer is to be able to understand and refactor other people's code. If you don't master it, you'll never be a good programmer. You're fortunate in being given a chance to learn the skill.
