I noticed that Thomas works for Infosys. His experience doesn't shock me
AT ALL. The fact that a consulting company insists that their programmers
code to the lowest common denominator is shameful. If they had tried to
foist that crap on our team when I worked several years ago for a company
that "hired" Infosys, we would have raised holy hell. I do remember being
asked by an onsite Infosys programmer to explain some of my "exotic", i.e.,
modern RPG code.

Thomas, I am curious, does Sysco have any in-house developers, and do they
have any say in this?

Don't you HATE it when you have to "dumb-down" your code to meet the
skillset of the worst programmer on the team????

I got dinged for writing

A += 1;

Instead of

A = A + 1;

And they made me change the lines of code to the latter.

And before I get dinged for this response, although the original comment
mentioned India, this comment is not intended to be racially biased but is
in reality, this a matter of fact everywhere.
