Nothing personal at your. There very well be good business reasons for doing this. And you just help out because someone asked how it could be done. Looks like you do know what you’re doing. We definitely need more like you.
What I’m a little upset about, is that we see so many new NAV developers, who starts changing the system, often in very “dangerous areas”, BEFORE they have any idea of what they are actually doing. As soon as they see part of a requirement, then they start coding it. What they should do is to ask enough question, that they really understand the full requirement. And then suggest the better solution, based on their expertise.
Being a NAV developer, is NOT like being a (typical) Java/Web developer. NAV takes a lot more, it requires that you know business and accounting and the consequences of what changing the system in one area can cause in another.
They may feel that they are “not to blame”, as it is their employer who doesn’t really take care of them, and make sure that their developers/consultants actually have the skills required for their job. Their employer don’t offer any training or anything, just expect them to start work. But that’s not really an excuse, there are plenty of ways to learn it, even if that has to be done outside normal working hours.
I’m just crying a little over how unprofessional many people are treating our profession. [emoticon:ca08b2c27c2f40e993e89508acf29e0b]
