I have worked professionally with software development since 1997. Since year 2000 I have worked as an independent contractor, helping various business in developing their internal and external IT systems. Since 2002 I have worked almost exclusively with the .NET framework.

Of notable work can be mentioned IT-Jobbank, Denmark's largest online job board for IT professionals, where I was the lead developer and architect.

comment What are the advantages/disadvantages of using record and playback for regression testing?
Another serious disadvantage is that they are very fragile. Just the simplest change to the application often breaks a dozen tests, even though the application still works as intended.

comment How to name parts of your program as a non native English speaker
I agree. I have worked on two different projects, where the domain concepts were legally and culturally specific to the native language. In the one case, we tried to translate everything to English. In the other, we kept the Danish terms in the code (and kept everything non-domain specific in English). And although mixing Danish and English was not pretty in the code base, it was still more valuable to have a precise domain model. Keeping the Danish terms in the domain model is essential in allowing developers to speak to domain experts.

comment What are the technical contributions of the pornography industry?
@jonescb - I heard the same, the porn industry mostly chose HD-DVD. But in this particular case, I think that the PS3 was the determining factor in which standard won. If MS had included HD-DVD instead of selling it as an add-on, I think things would have looked differently today

comment Recommended books on C++
I was going to suggest them. Bear in mind however, these are not beginner's books. They assumes familiarity with the language. But these books really taught me the beauty of the C++ language
