I love telling work partners that I’ll deny what I just wrote… 😊
It all depends on how complicated the eval forms are and the certificate design, the layouts, the logos, what fields we need to show and so on. If it were to be the simplest of simple cases I could probably do it in 6 hours but I’ll deny that if anybody were to quote me on it.

In other words, M/SOA fits the organizational shape of very large corporations. So far so good!
Where things go astray is when people look at, say, Amazon or Google or whoever else might be commanding a fleet of services, and think, hey it works for The Most Successful, I’m sure it’ll work for me too. Bzzzzzzzzt!! Wrong!
The patterns that make sense for organizations orders of magnitude larger than yours, are often the exact opposite ones that’ll make sense for you. It’s the essence of cargo culting. If I dance like these behemoths, surely I too will grow into one. I’m sorry, but that’s just not how the tango goes.
This is true of not just technical patterns, but general organizational approaches too. But that you shouldn’t run HR like a 50,000-person company when you have 50 seems obvious to most though (with some exceptions).
I’ve said more than once at work, “We’re not Netflix nor are we building Netflix here.”

I used to work with this guy years ago who would take great pride in yelling at tech support when he had them on the phone. He’d be so loud we could hear him clear over there in his cube.
He was rude. Like so rude that if I was on the other end of the phone I’d hang up. And I wouldn’t answer if he called back.
Then he would come over from his cube smiling. Like he just won. Like he was cool. Like he just showed them and was completely justified in his behavior.
I wouldn’t even acknowledge him afterward as he was grinning like an elevated, heart-racing moron. I’d just keep looking at my screen, typing on my keyboard. His air of superiority sickening.
Was that all his own personal vindication for some long lost battle?

Peeps, here’s your kneel-down-and-tell-me-about-your-world Tuesday jam. If this doesn’t get your lunch time fired up, nothing will.
Just don’t give yourself whiplash like Scheel (vocalist) did one time while warming up for a show. But do get their self-titled CD and crank to 11. So your neighbors can enjoy along with you.
