I've been spending over the last decade of my life building games.

I have a deeply seeded love of Python and the open source community as a whole.

comment Black Hat Hackers vs Programmers?
@MattRidge: Absolutely. However, my intent with sharing the link (other than it's one of my favorite nostalgic readings) was to suggest that you should accept black hat hackers as a way of life because it's never going to go away. I'm also not quite sure how standing on shoulders of giants is a bad thing.. We are all doing that.. Programmers and hackers alike.

@RobertHarvey: Sometimes people ask the wrong questions. The OP has a poor mindset to tackle technical interviews and this answer was an attempt to help put him/her on the right track.

comment What are graphs in laymen's terms
I'd actually extend that example to note that all entities described in your example could be depicted as vertices in a graph (city, plane, magazine, map, etc), the map itself just being a single vertex.

comment Python Coding standards vs. productivity
@MarkBooth: You can't please everyone. I agree that if it's simply imposed from above it's more difficult to get buy in from other members, but it's still not a "huge waste of time". In having the standards in place, the code should be much more consistent and therefore you would run into less diversity in code throughout a project, which increases readability. But yeah.. Throwing away tests due to standards would lead me to believe that there were bigger problems under the hood.
