Rant about group work
At university I'm really frustrated with my semester project group.
These people are all beginners. They came up with a design for our simple webapp with a bunch of features we don't need. They went to a stakeholder to confirm their design. Asking a single stakeholder what they want is unreliable, particularly because they were a friend. Nevertheless they took his confirmation as absolute truth. Usability is a huge aspect of our product.
Yesterday we attended a meeting with a *literal expert* in this narrow field, who also happens to be very close to the target audience. He had many of the same opinions as I and then some. Now my group is interpreting his words differently from me, and they are also arguing for keeping the original design due to having already spent time on it, which is basically just sunk time fallacy.
I thought I was Danish but now I don't know who I am anymore.

As DBA I have an obligation to end DATA CORRUPTION, even if that means requesting the help of a foreign dev. It is done all the time. This has NOTHING to do with corporate politics or a campaign against flash drives. This does have to do with their corruption!
