With Microsoft largely sticking to its twice-a-year Windows 10 update schedule (new versions in the spring and fal), “Windows 10 Spring Creators Update” will be coming soon to a PC near you. (It’s expected to roll out in April.)
And while the update does offer a few new features – including some likely to be welcomed by enterprise users – those changes users will see aren’t going to be dramatic.
This bank’s IT group gets a new director, and to the delight of one pilot fish, it turns out he started his career as a programmer.
“I thought, ‘Great! Now he’ll understand where us programmers are coming from!'” says fish.
“On the day he was introduced as the new director at a team meeting, I said to him, ‘So I understand you were a programmer?’ He replied, ‘Yes, but I was mediocre at best as a programmer. That’s why I got into management!'”
OK, fish thinks, we’re screwed. And it doesn’t take long for his fears to be justified.
A few weeks after the director’s arrival, he approaches fish with a new project. “We need a quick win!” he says. “Let’s get this report into production in the next two or three days.”
