Honey, I built the app! Amazon's beta no-code dev platform is great for ad-hoc stuff, but not much else – yet

Re: Am I the only one?

One of my programmers pinged me this afternoon to say the code that they are trying is not working. Due to the slack at the moment, I'd said to look at parsing some new information that is required for an old application that I recently ported to VB.NET from VB6.

My initial suspicion was right - some C# code had been found on the net and bodily copied into... a VB.NET project module. Why? I ask. "It's .net" is the answer I get. And apparently, they have 6 years of professional experience, whilst not VB.NET/C#, but with that amount of experience, one would hope for better.

And the reason they went into programming? Because someone said they'll be good at it. Alas, I'm only a contractor here, so, got to put up with what resources I'm given.
