Check out the first post in this series: Stark Industries – Entrance into Madness
One of the things I learned at Stark Industries is how to do your job without the proper tools available… I was like MacGyver.
Part of my job was working with hexedecimal code. I had to parse this code, change it, and discern meaning from it. This normally wouldn’t be so bad if I had the proper tools.
It would be like MacGyver needing to incapacitate someone when all he has is a toothbrush and a drinking straw. I bet he would give anything for a knife, maybe a bat, or just a gun… maybe just something that just looks like a gun.
Well, I really needed an IDE. My title was “Software Developer” after all and I needed to develop software. An IDE makes sense right? This post isn’t about acquiring that golden idol that is the Java IDE. I am saving that post for when I venture into “The Process.”
