Gary is a Senior Developer. He started years ago "when you had to carve your code with a hammer and chisel and wait 2 weeks for a batch compile".
He doesn't understand why we need so much technology today because we used to do the same thing with just COBOL, greensheet printouts, a clear plastic debugger ruler, and a bottle of Jack Daniels. He thinks Docker are slacks, Slack is "not working", java is what you drink with your full stack at Pancake House, angular, agile, and "best of breed" are ways to describe football players, and IDE is a form of birth control.
He knows the legacy system like the back of his hand (except for that wart right in the middle). He never went to school for programming but learned from our original system's code. He tries to follow standards and be a team player, but ultimately is a lone ranger who grunts things through when no one else is looking.
His achievements are prolific, surpassed only by the volume of code he's written that no one else can read.
