Our company couldn’t afford Xmas bonus’ this year, due to our forigen currency income being affected by exchange rates.
We peons circulated this cartoon at the time to some amusement.
Loan be hold, when a major (3 years in development and testing) release occurred last month, what did we get… commemorative t-shirts!!
It was hard to keep straight faces.
To add insult to hilarity, we have since received a second commemorative t-shirt for another major product release… “I better call my wife and tell her the good news”
Bug Bash is a comic strip written and illustrated by Hans Bjordahl. Bug Bash is a comic strip about technology: managing technology, the business of technology. It's about project management and managing projects through the dull world of Rational Rose, use cases, and requirements. Functional requirements, user requirement, functional specifications, design specifications, call it what you want but it's still the bane of project managers. And when you're done with that, you can think about all the fun that comes with timelines, scheduling, estimates (PERT estimation anyone?) and resourcing until Gantt charts are coming out of your ears. Let's not forget the risk management in the software engineering life cycle. Maintaining the project is just as much fun, managing what was initially set out in requirements and trying to keep feature creep / scope creep in check with change management. If any of these words send nightmares to you, the project manager, then this site probably rings true with you. (Who Links Here?)
