Well I had so much fun with my parody of A Few Good Men that I got inspired when I was listening to Bonnie Tyler yesterday.
So here's another cautionary tale, don't let this happen to your manager :)
Holding Out For A [Coding] Hero
Where has all the good code goneAnd where are all the geeks?Where's the byte-wise SocratesTo teach some real techniquesIsn't there a White Hat to make some crazy speed?Don't they know that a splash-screen Isn't what I really need!?
I need a hero!I'm hoping that a bright hero's gonna save me some bytesHe's gotta be smartAnd he's gotta work fastCuz we know that he's in for some fights
I need a hero!I know that my hero's gonna work through the nightsAnd I know he's no foolAnd the code will be coolWith no bugs in the lines that he writesLines that he writes....
Somewhere after M2In my schedule fantasySometime in a code reviewThat's when our hero's gonna fix the treeRip out all the code bloatAnd make it all run sweetIt's gonna take a superman To make this code compete!
It doesn't matter if it's managed VBCould be written in Python or CHe can fix all the codebase problems Guaranteed
Work the build and the tests for some gainsHe's a coding machine.I can see his approachLike a fire on my screen!
Like a fire on my screen!Like a fire on my screen!Ah! Ah!
