New Developer Snipe Hunt

Today is day 4 of the New Developer Snipe Hunt. It is theoretically possible to set up the development environment for my company’s massive, monolithic, fire-breathing, underpants-staining legacy-code-laden Rails app on a Vagrant box, and that is exactly what I and the other new Junior Developer are tasked with doing.

I swear to God, that app is running on black magic.

There is no other logical explanation for the fact that so many cobbled-together support applications should find the spiritual harmony to work together and produce a viable application that does not take customers hostage and boil them into a thick, boney stew.

(muffled screams)

Oh, Lord, it ate another developer. If I’m not back in 10 minutes, tell my husband I love him.
