I recently saw an add for a “Universe Developer” on Craigslist. Some choice snippets (with my comments in italics):
- “Direct Hire position- NO Contractors” Only people in for the long haul need apply
- “Design and develop new universes and make modifications to existing universes.” This one sure could use some help, but new universes?!
- “Recommend best practices for universe and report development.” That’s what we need, a GoF book for universe development
- “Provide performance tuning for reports and universes” What kinds of reports are needed for universes? Something I’d love to get my hands on
- “Must be able to work with limited supervision.” It’s lonely work creating universes
- “Experience with Visual Source Safe is a plus” Ahhh!!! Run!!!
