comment Interviewing someone for general unix skills
@Christophe - Well, here's the deal... it doesn't matter, because they probably won't work for you. It's a major red flag for an interviewee when the potential employer starts pulling silly stunts like this because they don't trust what's on the resume. Your "test", and your justification for it, is basically saying that you're trying to hire somebody to work a shit job at a shit company. I may be wrong, but I'm guessing that I'm not. However, if I am wrong, I suggest that you re-evaluate your "expectations".

comment Do the young minds need to learn the pointer concepts?
While Java doesn't allow for explicit use of pointers, C# does as unmanaged code blocks.

comment Switch to Java?
It's also a lot easier to leverage 4+ years of .Net into a Java job than to leverage 2+ years of retail (or similar) into any programming job because your market dried up and you didn't learn Java.

comment A modern review of Java
Java looks a lot different when you view it as a framework / platform instead of just a language. Maybe the problem is that the name is essentially "Java" for both.

comment Will a Bachelor of Science in something other than Computer Science hurt a career in software development?
@picmate - Well, what do want to do? Start a sw company or test programs? Sure, if you're running your own sw company you may have to divide your time, but the goal is to sell software, not test programs. Again, my point is this... if other companies won't hire you to develop software for whatever reason, then do it without them.

...you have to determine that you're not going to let your future or career satisfaction rest in somebody else's hands. If they won't invite you to their party, throw your own.
