Build Date: December 14

The Day of Software Exhibition

Modules, products or systems built on December 14 impress potential buyers at software exhibitions viewing their GUI but they rarely open their internals to show what they really are inside and what they are really computing. December 14 components have very complicated code and complex architecture. Many of their computations are bizarre. Their code is not ordinary, is self-aware and often confronts their parent processes and computational authorities. Sometimes it is not even possible to fit them into a predefined algorithm and even if it works initially later it causes enormous problems, for example, outraging a customer. However the good side to their challenging behaviour is that they are catalysts for software change. Modules, products or systems built on December 14 should be very careful with accidental violations. Their code might not be understood or they themselves might not understand their environment and that could result in their withdrawal from computation.

Weaknesses: Excessive computation. Isolated code.

Strengths: Original and provocative UI. Daring computation.

Advice: Make your code fix suggestions quietly while carefully considering what you propose and what you say to another engineer. Choose the middle way in troubleshooting, debugging and code reviewing and be philosophical with your peers, internal and external customers.
