Due to get out of this crap hole tomorrow :banana:

New guy has started. Currently doing handovers. He very quickly got the measure of the off-shore team. He has told the PM they are rubbish, like I have been for months. He [PM] is starting to understand just how bad they are. Epic badness. Total ineptitude.

He asked the off-shore team to document any final questions for me. I have been answering them. I let him in on one of the questions for comedy value. Basically asking how they could understand if a record was related to another record. After a brief scan of the data model the project manager managed to locate not only the relevant table, but the relevant column. His powers of deduction were not that impressive though, as if you were looking for a table that stored "Fruit" then a table called "Fruit" would be a logical place to look.

Similarly a column on the table called "Related_Fruit_Id" may have something to do with related records. He as a non tech got it. The off-shore team who have been in possession of the logical data model, data dictionary and have had numerous walkthroughs still could not get it. :facepalm:

They have to be trying to be this bad. :suicide:

Off to new gig on Monday. :banana2:

FTFY.

Either way nice to see you've escaped Suity. Don't forget to discuss a few data integrity and quality disasters as you leave.

I've drilled it home with the PM. It's up to him how he manages it / bullshits the client. :rolleyes:

Is this the same off shore team that you kept harassing to refactor their code to use cursors in SQL when in actual fact simple plain old SQL statements would have sufficed ?
No doubt you will be back next week moaning about some body else to hide your incompetence.
