Completely fictitus made up story for everyone!



  • Two top level CEO's of company are playing golf. One says to other "Hey, is your company using cloud based software?" The other CEO is confused.
    Next day he go home and say ot boys in charge of IT department. "We need to get all our systems replaced with cloud power."

    None of the boys tell him that the custom applications that are used in company are more helpful than cloudpower. Big project and more confusion is created. Finally they get cloud-power. Lot of application is replaced by THE FORCE. Nobody know how to use THE FORCE so they keep training people and programmer. Everyone who is programmer go and get new job.

    All user are more confused. More chaos. Finally they get one outsourcer from India to manage show. He hire junior level developer who know java. There is no development environment for Force at first. Finally they get one from the company. Then developer start work, in between making post on thedailywtf.

    Company is still trying to get everything to work in the cloud.

    Hip hip hooray!!! Time for more coffee...



  • What?

    Good start to a joke, but still waiting for the punch line.

    His boss heard a buzzword from a friend and, since another company in the same field was using it, he felt envious and thought his company needed to use whatever it was too.

    So he told the code monkeys at his company to get their company running on cloud-based software, or else they're getting the shaft. Nevermind that no assesment was made to check whether the company needed it, or if the company could afford it.

    At least that's what I understood.

    Not a joke. Sorry state of affairs in some US based company.

    Correct! You have got the SideWTF.



  • Reminds me of the time the CEO of our parent company went to play golf with a guy who ran a server hardware supplier, and came back declaring that if we rewrote our in-house software in java it would be much more reliable.


    The fact that the original developer of the software simply did a shambolic job, regardless of programming language, fell on deaf ears (we managed to persude him he was barking up the wrong tree eventually)



  •  You sound like you are that junior developer.

     Me good developer, me know java, me deploy to cloud.



  • I see the mismanagement factor here, but I really am a big fan for moving any servers you can into the cloud.

    You're so vain, you probably think this post is about you.



  •  Do you see that, Zach? "WTF", in the coffee.

    Yeah.

    Database servers, yes if data is not sensitive to org.

    Moving your app to cloud could make sense, but rewriting your app in THE FORCE is a utter waste of time.

    We should stop these CEOs from playing golf. That is source of much trouble.

    ... Unless you need a fast response time.

    Agreed!

    The database servers need to be wherever the application servers are. You know, so you don't have them OPEN to the ENTIRE INTERNET and also so requests come back faster than 300ms.

    Ok I'm not getting the joke. What's THE FORCE? Java?

    I'm guessing Salesforce. My company's had a whale of a time with them, too. All of a sudden this project appears out of nowhere and OMG WE NEED SALESFORCE YESTERDAY and everything is rush rush rush. At this point, all I know of it is all the kruft interfaces that exist. It's somebody else's headache now. Whatever.

    Oh that would make sense. I've never had to deal with it, but I've heard it's a gigantic WTF.

    Pandora actually played this song while I was reading the post. How cool is that?

     



  • I'm assuming it's this:



  • Welcome to the Force!!!

  • You're correct!

    Supposedly, the whole Marvel Age of Comics got started through one of those "CEOs playing golf" incidents... around 1961, the bosses of Marvel and DC Comics were playing golf and the DC guy happened to remark about how successful their Justice League of America comic was, and that superhero team comics were the new "in" thing.  Marvel at the time was still publishing mostly teen romance, sci-fi/monster (of the tame variety permitted after the imposition of the Comics Code), and other non-superhero comics because they still believed the conventional wisdom that superheroes went out of style after World War II. However, after that golf remark, the Marvel boss got convinced that his company had to put out a superhero team group comic, so he ordered his writers and artists to do this, and the result was the Fantastic Four.

    So, is this argument pro or against CEO golf?

    They should be glad they didnt have to do it using The Force!
