It's a bunch of smart people, I hear them all the time in meetings and I read their emails ... How can I say they are smart ... a good percentage of what they say I don't understand! They are the core that built and are now extending and selling a well known HP product. And they are polite and helping, which is another sign that they are smart ... I mean they must be smart, I feel it.

How come their frameworks are over-engineered, the code is full of dirt, the test coverage is close to zero? And something along this paradox to be tagged as sad: how come they are forgiving with this state of facts?

the young and the motivated

Its probably the young IT industry in Romania that makes recruiters add this sort of benefit in most of their emails and ads: You will be part of a young and motivated team.

I am looking forward for the times when I'll read this instead: You will be part of a very experienced team with great past achievements.
