It isn't fair to slight the younger folks in computer science and technology just because they are young.

Now, this system does show signs of being designed by a third-party developer who may have been rushed to production and may have outsourced some of their own development to places other than the US. It also shows signs of being written in a sub-par non-ideal language.
Agreed. Don't bash the younger crowd... look at the gaming industry, you have several AAA titles built by teams in their 20s with directors and department leads in their 30s and 40s directing the younger guys who are actually doing the dirty work.

This system was just designed by a team with poor communication and no teamwork. It's like splitting up the group and setting them in two separate rooms to code two separate parts without letting them talk to each other to make sure their programming plays nicely.
