FDLC issue

On a VB/ASP project, how do you convince a manger who
doesn't believe that a development methodology in the FDLC
is necessary in today's IT market, is REALLY necessary?
This manager believes this process slows the development
process down significantly, especially with ASP
development. This manager believes this process probably
works better for software companies than normal industries
like insurance, banking, manufacturing, etc. This manager
would rather see poorly written ADHOC code that works and
was produced quickly, than analysis that was thought out
and good code was written in the process. This manager
also believes that documentation should come after your
done programming than during the FDLC.

Has anyone every dealt with this situation before, and
succeed in changing the manager view of IT development?

Basically, you have three options. Accept his requests, quit and find
a new job or kill him and assume his position. Note that the third
one may sound acceptable but most organizations will frown upon it...

Hi, I've been struggling with this today, I'm developing a DotNet2.0 website in C# that needs to call a long running data query. Obviously this is a good candidate for an Asynchronous call, so the page can carry on rendering whilst the call is taking place and also returning the ASP.NET worker thread to service another page request (for scalability). I have developed a very basic asynchronous object (for testing, that reproduces the same...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...
