Former Infosys Recruiter Says He Was Told Not To Hire US Workers

mjwalshe Re:Y'all are so cute.... (292 comments)

When you see on sites dealing with work Q you quickly see that professional workers in India are treated much worse at home as well - I suspect that Infosys managers are importing the behaviours they learnt at home - Some of the stuff that goes on in India would shock a Victorian mill owner

Why a Chinese Company Is the Biggest IPO Ever In the US

mjwalshe Re:US investors don't own Alibaba the retailer ... (191 comments)

Yep both HK and London took one look at the corporate structure and said not on our exchange - if this goes pear shaped it could trigger major trouble for Google and other tech companies with "dodgy" share classes that allow a minority of outsiders to take the piss with supposedly a public company.

Ask Slashdot: How To Avoid Becoming a Complacent Software Developer?

mjwalshe Re:Business (275 comments)

Actually some of us where doing Agile back in the mid 90's - it was called RAD or DSDM

BT built a system to manage its SMDS network using a hybrid water fall design phase plus a 12 week dev sprint with I think two intermediate prototypes that we let the users play with - we even sourced the sever and took enough kit to build a network on site in case hey had forgotten to provide one :-)

Scotland Votes No To Independence

mjwalshe Re:The over-65's swung it for No (474 comments)

Actually the SNP was originally quite sectarian - some thing glossed over in the obits of one of the founders obit. And a mate of mine born and brought up on red Clydeside (member of the cp and on the employers black list for union organising) commented that unfortuety there is a nasty anti english side to the scots that doesn't always show.
