I developed an application that speeded up/automated an internal process from 2 hours to 5 minutes. There were three people dedicated to this process where I work.
Today there are two.
I've been told that the person was let go for other reasons. Whatever the exact reason, I feel that my program enabled action to be taken.
Whatever my personal feelings were to the person... (Another department, someone who I could tolerate for short spurts) It sucks to feel like you were the cause of someone getting fired. Even indirectly. Even feeling unjustifiably guilty.
If the position gets reposted, I will feel less bad about it.
Not today though... which spawned a small flurry of LJ posts.
Till next year.
