got a job at a small IT company, i work with network, asterisk platform and developping tools for admins, operators and clients.
i'm having a blast programming and the updates-patches are at nights, perfect for my vampiric personnality
but ... i still consider myself a jr. man! there is so much to learn
(i work with a mix of PHP, Java, Python, AJAX, Prototype and HTML5 for some event handling)
i'm having problem getting around the code of others
custom in house framework and after 4-5 programmers you can imagine the cleaness of the code and almost no comments
nop, i have no head programmer here, i'm by my own
seriously it takes me more time to find where the code is, than doing to actual modification
sometimes i think, i would be better off redoing the entire software even if it takes me half a year, than loosing my time searching.
so you guys have any tricks ?
or how you guys handle others code (i mean large projects) ?
maybe hints on the IDE, i work with eclipse for production and VIM for live ermergency update
