Whatever. I’m a bit pissed off at people here. Right now our tech effort is pretty much a sham. I understand that Stanford’s a jolly place to work that’s not a lot of high stress or whatever. We can smile and laugh and be happy with each other, but in the end, we’ll have crappy ass code to show for it.
People want this system to be well respected and trusted to hold their most valuble data and yet it seems like nobody wants to even write test cases for their code. We make guidelines that are so vague that it doesn’t help us out, and we pat people on the back and say “well done!”. It’s maddening.
We have a chance to make something really really good. exceptionally good. We have a chance to define everything. Software stacks, methodologies, architecture. And yet people are half assing it.
I definitely like the lifestyle of working at here, but it seriously makes me question whether I can stay here long term or not.
