Der Fluch des Consultants


Unfortunately for everyone involved, I made a fatal mistake right at the beginning of the engagement. I completely underquoted the hourly rate. The hourly rate should have been approximately four times what I quoted. I was immediately classed as a POJP (plain old Java programmer), rather than as a world-class Java consultant. Since I was now a POJP, the rate I had quoted sounded too high to the director and he tried to squeeze me even on that.

During the first discussions, I again raised the problem of them creating far too many threads. The director, who had now classed me as technically way below him, insisted that there would be no problem creating hundreds of thousands of threads, as long as they were not all active at the same time.
