I know this is easy to overlook for commercial developers.
But, for those on Government Jobs this is an all caps 2nd comming issue.
Access to Developer Web Sites. This is the number one gripe about working on-base!
I can't say the number of times I've needed an open source add-in or patch and the site has been blocked.
Or, just looking for an answer I haven't solved yet and, you guessed it, the site is blocked.
These are good respectable sites I go to at home all the time, too.
Government IT support on the network connected computers is virually non-existant. Try to get a second monitor installed. You can "ask" for a site waiver. And, in a year or two you might get a no answer!
And, of course your IDE and developer software is illegal on a Network connected machine so you have to work off-line and transfer files back and forth via portable hard drive. Of course, you then have to decrypt what you bring back from your network computer.
Of course I should be grateful...
Seeing as I am doing what I love without certs or degrees.
And, with the economy so bad...
