I am a software developer working for Microsoft in Cambridge, UK. I am working on the coolest product in the world - Visual Studio - on features part of the Ultimate version of VS, specifically those related to ALM (app lifecycle management). Our aim is to improve code understanding, especially code understanding at scale (think all the code in your enterprise, not just your solution).

Some of the things I contributed to: Code Lens for Git, Code Map, UML Diagrams and some other projects that I cannot yet disclose :)

I'm originally from Bucharest, Romania, where I did my studies (BS in Computer Science and Engineering and MS in IT Project Management) and started my career. I’ve been a developer since 2006 in Bucharest at a network corporation called Ixia. After that I moved to Paris, France where I worked for 2 years for Microsoft developing various projects around entertainment - music, video and xbox.

Yes, ~first year students. I do know the battleship game in general, but I don't see a lot of inheritance, interfaces, abstract classes there. Can you clarify?

The general ideea is great, but I can't find an actual game (except the one in the first comment, and it's kind of bad :) )

Great comments. Especially about motivating the ones who are slower and how not to go for primes and fibonacci (was going to soon he he).

comment How to organize a programming course?
In this organization TEST and DEV are separated. Test has to come up with a strategy to automate (i.e. program) the testing of the product (unit tests for ex). For historical reasons, the company has manual testers to do some work and we are moving towards programmers in test (button pushers are at 10% cost in China :D ). The question is how do I transform these guys in programmers (for the TEST team) in 2 months!

I can't really make sense of this answer. I don't have developers, I have manual testers. How could I possibly explain CruiseControl if they don't know what a ctor is?
