comment Why do most programming languages have special keyword or syntax for declaring functions?
The criticism seems valid to me. For Java, the OP seems to think [input, output, name, input] is a simpler / clearer function def than simply [output, name, input]? As @m3th0dman states, with longer signatures, the OP's 'cleaner' approach becomes very long-winded.

comment Are certifications worth it?
@jwenting Really? So any guy who's sent, by his employer (yes, some still invest in training), would be immediately discounted by that company? Whilst a certificate is no guarantee of good quality, it's certainly no guarantee of poor quality candidates...

comment Are certifications worth it?
+1 for saying certificates tell you how much a person remembers, not how well they think. I often write software in several languages and often need a reference for subtle differences in syntax and the API libraries - it doesn't affect the quality of the software I produce though.

comment how could I interview for a C# position if I master Java
Well, questions on design patterns and OOP are universal - as is problem solving and approach to testing etc etc. Find a guy that can do all that well and language syntax is rarely a big problem.
