I’ll chime in here, although I seldom post on forums or FB due to the trolls. I’ve been in the US Federal IT world for almost 30 years. I’ve worked for and with military professionals, academics (the worst), accountants, cartographers, and general US Government lackeys during this time. I have significant knowledge in how the Fed does IT, and, generally, it sucks. But I will say this; the folks involved in the development of Command are doing a stellar job. The development cycle is very agile, relies on customer input, and is responsive to critical issues. Many commercial enterprises such as Microsoft, Apple, Oracle, etc. would die to have the development cycle these people sustain. It’s awesome.
As in any social media environment, there will always be people who have no filters about what they post on-line. In my opinion, it’s a sickness. I seriously doubt they do this in their place of employment, if such exists. It’s hard to ignore under any circumstances. They do however need to be slapped down hard. It’s probably the only thing they understand.
The Dev team at Matrix accomplishes in months what our illustrious government does in years. That is something to consider…
