Obvious fact: You're not logged in.

Therefore, you're only seeing the tip of the iceberg of great discussion threads on this site. The frankest, most raw and truthful observations about employment and work life in the IT and engineering fields are in "members only" sections that are ONLY visible when you are registered and you log in.

If you're 35 or over, and work in IT, or are retired from IT, and you dislike the herd mentality and clueless, adolescent snobbery of forums such as "Hacker News", then you really should join this board. Why? Because you're too smart for Facebook. And everyone needs someone to gossip, commisserate, and chat with at their level.

Who we are:

A collection of IT, engineering and sciences professionals, in a variety of current circumstances with a variety of career backgrounds. Including:

  • System admins
  • Developers and programmers
  • Freelancers and "gig" entrepreneurs
  • Contract, job shopping and FTE-employed contract house IT workers
  • Web developers
  • Inventors
  • Artists and writers with tech backgrounds

This forum has its roots in the 1990s buildup of the IT field into what we know today and has been around since 2002. 10s of thousands of messages and threads about a variety of career, FTE, contract, and side gig issues and opportunities.

If you're as smart as the typical experienced IT professional, you have a critical mind that has a hard time staying engaged with pop culture and generic issues of the day. And you're WELL beyond the fanboy mentality of the young developer communities. Get some relief here.

Register on the board - your email is NEVER sold or provided to third parties. Then LOGIN FREQUENTLY to see new stuff daily. Note to long lost members: all politics have been marked as "opt in" only. You won't see anything political unless you ask for it.

Things never change do they?  Back in the day, long before the word "Agile" had been invented I used to go to daily "merge meetings" where you had to explain what and why you were merging into the baseline. "Breaking the build" was about the most humiliating thing a programmer could do. 

That brings back some good memories for me.  Many, many years ago, I was the "build / configuration master" at a DoD contract.  I had an actual "propellerhead beanie cap" that I gave out to the developer that "broke" a build.  That person had to keep it in their work area until the build was able to be properly integrated into the end product.  At first, they hated it (we had nightly builds).  But, after time went by it turned into a fun thing (I was usually able to fix their code for them before they arrived in to work the next morning - Ada, C, C++, O/S's and shell scripts running on a Harris NightHawk, Sun Workstations and some custom hardware components).

Ahh, the memories when times were much simpler.

Times are far simpler now!  That's why I said I was really appreciative of continuous integration with Subversion and Jenkins at my last job. 

Doesn't a "nightly build" sound so horrible in this day and age?  And the poor developers...  A project manager -- who, BTW, unlike you, never contributed or fixed anything, one time stood in front of a group of developers in an auditorium and threatened the entire group with some kind of public humiliation (can't remember what it was) if anyone merged any code that broke the overnight build.
