    Cause I don’t think I’ve posted it here and it seems apt.

    Having worked in the corporate engineering world for close to 30 years, this practice of pulling people off project A and dumping them on Project B so B can ship earlier is so asinine it is not to be believed.

    Unless these people are doing pure monkey work such that coming on in the 11th hour to a project requires no training what so ever, this is just a Dilbert PHB waste of everyone’s time. I use to have this practice shoved down my throat all of the time. Everyone claims to have read The Mythical Man Month but all of my managers just ignored it. You can’t have a kid in one month by getting 9 women pregnant. Throwing bodies on a project in the end just slows down the really productive members of the team as they are scrambling teaching the new bodies what to do and praying they don’t break what has already been done. Sheesh……. history just keeps repeating itself.

    Enough soap box…….

    [Phil Hoppes] “Having worked in the corporate engineering world for close to 30 years, this practice of pulling people off project A and dumping them on Project B so B can ship earlier is so asinine it is not to be believed.”

    And then:

    [Phil Hoppes] ” I use to have this practice shoved down my throat all of the time.”

    So on the one hand this idea is so asanine that it can’t be believed that Apple actually does it, and yet in 30 years of corporate engineering, you had that exact scenario “shoved down your throat” all the time?

    Am I missing something here?

    Yea.

    1) It’s an asinine practice and ….

    2) No one ever learns and continues to do it somehow thinking that this time things will be different.

    3) I just kinda was hoping that may Apple was above it, but no, they do the same crap.

    I can say with definite experience. It does not work. I was forced to do it against my wishes on numerous occasions. The results were always the same.

    While that may be true, this thread was based on Olivers somewhat tongue in cheek premise that the FCP X team had been pulled off to other tasks. I doubt that’s true.

    Of course it’s not true. 10.10 and iOS8 will be one and the same, so they’ve actually moved programmers off the OS X team over to the FCP X team, right?

    You’re not supposed to reveal that Walter! Didn’t you sign an NDA?!?!

    While I find the recent penchant for unfounded rumour odd, these are alluding to past reports on the way Apple has shifted engineering teams around.

    While my comment was indeed tongue-in-cheek, Apple does have a development process where some engineers work across product lines. For example, UI development has in the past been handled by engineers who move from one product to another. I believe some of the folks have moved between Aperture and FCP as well as FC Server, in the past. That’s not necessarily a bad thing.
