Business Intelligence developer at Hot ITem, with a background in Computer Science. Love to discover new things in code, platforms and more.

When I'm not working, I like playing the piano (& hammond organs - I LOVE those), spending time with friends (going out, having some beers, discussing Deep Thoughts about Life And The Universe) and travelling.

comment Dijkstra quote on object-orientation?
It sounds like one of Dijkstra's quotes. But even then .. it could have been made up, but is across the internet always quotes as one of the things Dijkstra hass said.

comment 8yr+ .Net developer interested in game programming - should I learn C++?
You compare .NET and Java (when related to each other, I think you're relating to the platform, not the languages on the platforms) and compare that to C/C++ (which are languages - until implemented on a platform like, well, .NET). Can you clarify that up? IMHO the Java specifications are just as open as the C/C++ specs are. Even the tooling is - although I wouldn't recommend Java as game development language/platform :-).

comment What does Dijkstra mean when he recommends an exceptionally good mastery of one's native tongue?
@RYUZAKI: sorry, I wasn't directing to you when I said that you don't argue with your colleagues in a non-native language :). But I think in that case it's important to find ways to communicate clearly - and the easiest thing I can think of is to use one language to explain to each other. Again, I don't think it affects you in your programming skills, but sure it hurts in productivity if you can't communicate over code..

comment What does Dijkstra mean when he recommends an exceptionally good mastery of one's native tongue?
True. I think Dijkstra has a point, but the word "programmers" should be replaced by "computer scientists". Of course a scientist needs to be able to argue and write in clear language. The same applies to programmers: you don't lure me into thinking that you argue with your (also native-speaking) colleagues in another tongue. Here in Holland all development environments are in English, but when I'm arguing with my colleagues about a piece of code we do it in Dutch.

comment Is it legal to disassemble a Microsoft dll and post the result on my blog?
@RRUZ: ok, but it isn't forbidden to use the same names as MS does inside the library. I wouldn't worry about calling those functions by name, just because they're hidden otherwise. You don't copy their algorithms or code - and there is no copyright law on variable or method names AFAIK ;-)
