Like many who worked for years in the world of K2 4.x, I had to adjust to multiple changes when clients adopted K2 Five. Experience made some problems in K2 4.x a snap to fix, but we maybe needed to grow a little to accomplish the same in the new version.
Can you call an Initialized() method from a SmartForm while it’s Initializing? (Sponsorship opportunity for Excedrin or Tylenol)
I’m going through the rules in a SmartForm and associated views to squash a bug, when I came upon an Execute a Form method action in the When the Form is Initializing rule.
Trouble is, the method to call is the Initialized method.
Would that even work?
K2 SmartForms’ Quick Search Excludes a Column in the List View (Part II)

The Importance of Integrity
I’m working for a client new to the world of software development and unencumbered by familiarity with development lifecycles and environments. (Not their fault; it just places the onus on us to teach them.) I’m not sure how long my company has been working with them; I just joined the project a couple of months ago.
Somewhere in the past, some percentage of the developers on the project acquiesced to doing development work in their production environment, probably because they were asked to do so to help them with some tight deadlines or urgent requirements. The short term effect was that it helped the client meet whatever deadlines or requirements they had; the long term effect is… disastrous.
