Fastest way to understand Java scripts? I don’t need to write Java but need to figure out the logic of the code for a summary report. I have Python and SAS experience. Thx

Ask someone who knows it already. Don’t try to learn unless you’re interested

Lol, and that's how partners do it!

1. Review the test cases if the developer actually wrote them. 2. Run the script using inputs from the domain of the input and understand how it behaves 3. If it has a main class or main method, start reviewing it from line 1 and follow the methods

Java or JavaScript? (They are very different) If you don’t know it already, you aren’t going to learn the nuances fast enough to write a report about it. (Like which included libraries are worth mentioning). For example, if JavaScript with React, a few days learning isn’t going to teach you enough you should be assessing how routing was implemented, if Redux is setup well to avoid performance issues, or whether function-based or class-based modules are used (and whether there’s a reason to switch). That’s not even getting into a thousand other questions about a React setup, let alone Angular, Vue, Svelte, or completely vanilla JavaScript. What about browser vs. Node? If you are being asked to write a report, it’s because someone unfamiliar with the code or the project needs enough evaluation to make decisions. You being in the middle for a game of telephone won’t helpful.

Ok. I’m scared now. I’ll probably escalate. I actually have 7 months for this task. But anyways i see your point it probably requires years of Java coding experience

smart

OP - pair up with a Sr Dev or Arch that is familiar with the solution. They will most likely need to spend 5 to 10 hrs a week to go through the code while you document.

Guys I think I’ve got my feet in the door! I can read/guess some meaningful insights out of the code now! Late nights seem to pay out 😇

Got offered a consulting job with CFGI for a manager position (12% raise). I don’t like Audit anymore and it just makes me unhappy. It impacts my health a lot. Had to work till 4-5 am during busy time and some very busy days during this summer. Partners tried to help me move to Deals since beginning of the year but it won’t happen right away. They will ask me to do the audit for another year. My guts told me to move to CFGI but I’m nervous. Should I move now in Sept or wait for PwC uncertainly?

Got laid off due to Covid in July. I have been searching for a job for three weeks. Diligently looking and applying. I keep getting rejection letters and Linkedin resume views, but no offers. Not even a single interview. My resume looks great and experience is amazing. Anyone else in the same boat? Misery needs company 😝
