Fucking PMP
« on: July 10, 2018, 07:37:23 AM »
I fucked around and let my PMP certification expire after holding it for 18 years. Now I have to take the exam again so I'm taking a boot camp class. Fuck this shit is hard. Lots of memorization, and my poor old fucking brain doesn't memorize for shit any more.

This shit sucks...

My sympathy.  I had Security+ (old style) for 8 years, but my irresponsibility caught up with me, and had to take the new Security+ CE to keep my job.

The certs do change over time ... the new Security+ was maybe 25% new material.

You sure it wasn't a PiMP certification?  More fun to study for that one! ;-)

Yea, they just added Agile to the PMI curriculum a few months ago. Lucky me… It's a whole separate vocabulary to an already confusing vocabulary. Now I have to know three different terms instead of two for the same thing a hundred different times.

Technical confusion is nature's way of telling you to find a new field to explore.

BTW ... Agile is obsolete, how come you are doing it now?

I'm doing it because PMI added it to the curriculum 5 months ago.

Has anybody bothered to tell the thousands of manufacturers using agile that it is dead?

If it didn't happen in Business Week, it didn't happen ...

Apple used to get in trouble for telling truth to power, but they sold us out!

In short, to summarize the first video ... by one of the inventors of Agile (he doesn't know nothing) ... is that a method got commercialized so that the consultant vultures could have some corpses to feed on ;-(  The corpse of your company, which is mostly being sucked dead by vulture capitalists like Baine Capital.

Same as Proletarians Of The World Unite ... following a meme, a slogan ... get back to the coal mine Comrade, the 5 year plan awaits.

Did you bother to watch the first video?  He has a few good things to say about Scrum at the end of it.  See my comment in between, that summarizes the whole mess.  It starts out with UML is a curse from G-d ... by 2000, that is 18 years ago.  Because OOP worker bees just follow orders, and don't really know what the fuck they are doing.  Apply this to every technical and business fad.  Our organizations are in trouble, because they are brainless at the top, and the worker bees are in trouble because they are getting micromanaged by the brainless (imposing methodologies on subordinates when you are just being an ignorant twit).

Whatever you do, you either know how to do it or you don't.  No methodology is going to change that.

BTW ... if you program in Ruby, he has bad things to say about the Ruby testing Nazis.  In any field, if you know what you are doing, you don't have to test it much.  Large scale testing is mostly to create jobs for the testing department, and give the technicals CYA for the crappy work they do.  Like ... nobody could have anticipated that that Tesla would burst into flames from having all those explosive lithium batters in it!
