comment Asking my employer if I can open source a project I'm working on for the company
I did this once and made sure that any company-specific information was totally left out. I explained to my manager that it was a "skeleton" of the product I made with the intent of helping others. They were very receptive.

comment Is CodeIgniter PHP Framework suitable for large ERP or Business Application?
@adietan63 have you looked at some of the existing ERPs on the market? I was tasked with a similar project and the breadth of an ERP in general made it extremely costly to develop from scratch. It is a daunting task, no doubt.

comment What should a self-taught/no experience programmer's resume look like?
I gave this a +1 because metrics and accomplishments are important. It makes you appear far more valuable than "I was responsible for ..." which shows the tasks you did, but not how great you were at them.

comment What are some fun (and very easy) C++ programs for a 10 year old kid to write?
man, something like a typing piano is what kids go bonkers for. the strongest point in my technology classes (i taught k-8) were things related to music. they absolutely LOVED it. since i'm musically inclined, making something that automatically played chords in a fixed scale would have high impact on most children.

@Dave Wise Nah. All the times this has happened it's been because the person had an episode or something.

yeah, I rely heavily on the debugger to give me an idea of what is going on. Going into it with no knowledge, did you have a reasonable amount of fear? I've found that at the beginning of any of these!
