Confessions of an IT Manager
|Format||Paper book / ebook (PDF)|
From IT projects that have trampled all over the guiding principles of successful development, to tips on training your manager to the required standard, each of Phil's tales is shot through with a wild seam of anarchic humour. And yet, in each case, the humor is just a sugar coating for a pill of sage advice, wrought from years of rough-and-tumble in the IT industry.
In his more reflective moments, he gives vent to his inner poet, penning romantic elegies to the SQL Server index, or quietly condemning recruitment agencies to Dante's inferno for crimes against innocent contractors.
Phil Factor is a legend in his own runtime. Scurrilous, absurd, confessional and scathing by turns, Confessions of an IT Manager targets the idiocy, incompetence and overreach of the IT management industry from vantage point all the way up and down the greasy pole.
