I'm a programmer. Simple as that.

comment Events where junior-level developer/CS student can prove himself?
For what I know with GSOC you can either submit a project proposal or choose one suggested by the different software foundations (like the Perl or Parrot foundations). When you do so you still get a month or so to read up on the project, study its sources etc. So I think if you feel you're capable of picking up one of the many GSOC projects just apply.

comment Should curly braces appear on their own line?
They are both as easy to debug, mainly since it's a short block of code. The indentation is consistent making it easy to visualize the actual code blocks.

comment Should curly braces appear on their own line?
My exception on this one is that else and elseif do go on a newline so they aren't prefixed with a closing brace.

This question is pretty much valid for any programming language.

comment Any good tools for managing list of tasks?
non-IT savvy? Really? I find JIRA really confusing to work with, at least that's my experience with Zend Framework using JIRA.

comment Why do people hesitate to use Python 3?
Ugh sorry, I meant Rakudo 1.0. Rakudo Star isn't meant for production yet.

comment Why do people hesitate to use Python 3?
Until Rakudo Star is released there is no official production ready implementation of Perl 6. Or another implementation catches on, but I don't see that happening anytime soon.

Perl 6 is still under development. Yes, Rakudo Perl is the closest implementation to the Perl 6 specification but doesn't implement everything yet. There is simply no production ready Perl 6 implementation yet.

Flash also crashed for me in Chromium. At least when having multiple tabs open with video's. Other than that it was stable.

Seamless merging with Subversion? :-)

I also installed 10.10 on a 6 year old Dell Inspiron 1150 laptop and that works rather nice actually, although I don't use it myself. A bit slow, but it's an oldie. The biggest annoying thing on my own laptop though was the clunky, some times non-responsive, user interface. I couldn't for the life resize a window by clicking in the lower right corner. Perhaps a too sensitive mousepad.

Ubuntu 10.10 on a HP Pavilion DV7-1210ed laptop. I've also run Ubuntu 7.10 and 8.04 (and I think 8.10) on a HP Pavilion Elite m9060 (desktop pc) which was a much better experience. 7.10 Was quite nice actually, upgrading to the others gave spontaneous errors in wireless and audio failing. Also, sound quality with 10.10 on my laptop was really poor.

I meant endianness as in a thing to beware of when writing software. But you're right, since PPC Mac's are probably not a thing one targets anymore it's not of a big issue.
