I am Sakis Kasampalis, a Software Engineer based in The Netherlands.

My study interests include Software Engineering, all aspects of Programming, and Operating/Embedded Systems. I enjoy writing code in pragmatic languages, and I am not dogmatic about particular programming languages and tools. My principle is that the right tool should be used for the right job.

comment Are questions on graphs common in programming interviews?
It is really up to the interviewer. If he/she likes graphs nobody forbids him/her to ask about them.

comment What is up with the Joy of Clojure 2nd edition?
It's impossible to keep a book up to date if there is no stable API. Have you tried contacting Manning publications or Fogus to ask? Are you using the version of Clojure covered in the book?

comment Is it possible to know what programming language a web-site uses?
That's what he had in mind initially, but I think that PHP can do today much more. For correctness, I wouldn't call PHP a web framework. In that case what CakePHP, codeigniter, etc. are? Web frameworks of the web framework? :)
