Hi,

I work in a team that works in shifts. We have three shifts-morning, afternoon, and night. We have to chart out a shift plan for all the members every month and it is turning out to be a very tedious work. There are various factors that go into the shift plan.
All the team members are divided into three categories-seniors, intermediate, and juniors.
The seniors, and intermediate come in night shift once in 4 weeks. the junoirs come in night shift twice in 4 weeks.
Night shift should have only 2 resources of which one should be senior. Morning shift should have only one resource.
Afternoon shift has the maximum strength.
We have to take into consideration the planned leaves of each resource too.

Now, is it possible to develop a software that takes in all these parameters and gives out the shift plan for every month..???

Please let me know if you think any more information is needed.

Thanks,
James

Hi,

I work for a very reputed MNC in a South-indian Metro. I joined the company as a fresher, and am still in the same Prod Support proj for the past 20 months. I am from a Non-IT background. So, I was not very good at Java. Later, after I got into this project, I never got any chance to look into the code. All I do is call the US clients, ask what their issue is, look into a document, follow what it says and close the issue (ticket). Since it has been 20 long months now, I have totally lost touch of Java. I am no better than a 12th Std guy.

What is bothering me here is, 'IS MY CAREER RUINED NOW'? When I look for opportunities outside my company, they look for coding/programming/development experience. Since I have become a senior member of my team, I am not being released either from my current project.

Unlike other prod support projects, the one I work in is very hectic. We have very stringent SLAs to meet, and not a very co-operative on-site team. We work round the clock. There is no much time to concentrate on other stuffs. I have completed SCJP and will soon complete SCWCD. But, I don't feel these certifications carry any value. Hands-on experience is being given more importance!!

So, my situation is : "A guy with 2 yrs experience in Java, but who hasn't coded even a hello world once in his life"

Please advise me what to do now? How to proceed.. Is my career totally Ruined???
