I've developed enterprise systems for organisations for 6000+ employees and have a list of things relating to Spatial tech, optimisation and development that I'd like to cement and share. Anything to do with Best Practices, Optimisation and Design Principals relating to Spatial Systems, Databases or just a coding in general feel free to email me. I like to code.

I've been wrapped up in GIS for about 8 years now, but like anything that seems like a puzzle. GIS has many of them, squeezing performance out of a spatial system is just one of them that affects all users.

I want to contribute to it's solution.

comment “Pythonic” equivalent term for code written in modern C++ style?
@ChristianRau I also agree with this, to carry on leetspeak beyond university is some what childish. Just though I'd take a trip down memory lane. Not that I used the lexicon myself, I just found it amusing

@DougT - I completely agree. My tongue in cheek comment was a throw back to my university days, of which the first year was complete confusion about what 1337 meant.

comment What is a hack?
@Matt Ellen, I meant "rare as hens teeth". Sorry for the ambiguity. The rare situation I was eluding to is being able to deliver a project and hit the all KPI's for Time, Cost an Quality. There are compromises in all projects that affect one of these areas.

comment What is a hack?
I use to play that game with clients. I'd ask them to pick the two most important aspects of a project from Quality, Time, Cost. Almost always Time and Cost were picked, and then they'd haggle on quality. Specifically, citing the fact I was a consultant and should be able to deliver all three under time, cost and with outstanding quality. This scenario is like Hen's Teeth!

Take a term from the 'hacker' community and call it 1337 (leet). Such a term also continues the C programmers reputation ;)
