MSc in physics, PhD student in mathematics. All about me can be found at my web site: http://english.rejbrand.se.

My major programming project is AlgoSim – a free numerical mathematical software: http://www.algosim.se.

IT/Programming skills:

  • Windows
  • Delphi/Pascal
  • Win32
  • Learning assembly (very fun!)
  • Advanced (X)HTML, CSS skills; basic JS, ASP skills
  • No knowledge (nor interest) in .NET, unfortunately.

comment Does any programming language use variables as they're in maths?
In mathematics, most equations are not identities. For instance, x^2 + 5 = 6x is valid if and only if x = 1 or x = 5. Equations that are valid for all values in some "universe" (such as the set of all real numbers), e.g. sin(2x) = 2 sin x cos x, are called identities.

comment What are the most impressive tricks an IDE could pull off with the code?
Yes, this is very useful. But as I have said a few times here, it is very easy to implement and (hence) not very "impressive".

I haven't use this either (I use RAD Studio for Delphi), but it sounds like a dream come true. (But is this a valid answer to this question? It is more a debugger feature than a code editor feature. Well, it is a part of the IDE, so maybe...)

comment What are the most impressive tricks an IDE could pull off with the code?
But this isn't a very advanced feature. Sure, it is highly useful, but not very "impressive".

Bad luck... (You got mail at the very moment you took the screenshot.) But this isn't a very advanced feature. Sure, it is probably highly useful, but not very "impressive" (at all).

comment How would you rank these programming skills in order of learning them?
For Windows developers, you eventually need to master the Windows API. I also think it is important to learn to work with custom data structures mangaged manually on the heap. You should also learn to design, read, and write binary files (at least simple ones like Windows 3 bitmaps). And, if you work with native programming, you should become familiar with assembly.

comment What are the most popular IDEs per language?
I think that the proper name for "the Delphi IDE" is "RAD Studio".

comment What syntax element do you hate most in a programming language you use frequently?
Yes, many expect JavaScript to be a "free-form language", but it isn't.

comment What is the (craziest, stupidest, silliest) thing a client/boss asked you to do?
It is not that simple (e.g. "a unique feature").

comment What's the most absurd myth about programming issues?
I cannot believe this -- surely every true programmer drinks nothing but Coca-Cola (the original version, no "light" or "diet" thing).
