Software developer. I work primarily in C#, Silverlight, SQL, and ASP[.NET] at work and home, but am trying to find a new practical language to learn that isn't quite so C-based. Right now I'm refreshing my abilities in functional programming with some F#. Also somewhat experienced with C++, PHP, Java, LaTeX, HTML/CSS, WPF, and a touch of Scheme.

Somehow I read "A client wants us to use touch screen machines for pornography." Kinky.

comment Worst coding standard you've ever had to follow?
StyleCop is great, though, IF you go in and remove those pointless standards that just make unnecessary work. Some things that StyleCop enforces are actually very, very useful.

comment Card deck and sparse matrix interview questions
@MrDatabase — Off the top of my head, doing my stack-based algorithm in O(1) space (did you mean O(n) space?) is probably impossible in O(n) time, but I'm no algorithms expert. Very nice article, though.

comment How do you make slides for programming talks?
Some people will swear by the beamer package. And they'll trip over themselves to help you with it over at tex.se.

LYAH sounds tempting simply because of its retarded title.
