Just because something works doesn't necessarily mean it was done properly.
I couldn't have said it better myself. I am working on a project that has billions components. Pain in the rear. The code has to travel the world to do a basic task.
Now the system is down and the guy who developed it has left - the company didn't renew his contract and now I have to fix the problem. What a horror of a system.
Just to give you an example - one of the main front ends has about 15 iframes. I wanna cry.
And it's funny how business doesn't renew contracts or not care when core people leave. My previous company also... the core people left and they[business] didn't care. At the end of the day they had to hire these guys at extra rate to do the work. These guys worked for 6-7 years.. they know the business etc... but business people think it's just "devs"
