comment Why can't the IT industry deliver large, faultless projects quickly as in other industries?
Even in the industry the OP mentioned, Aerospace, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and JSF F-35 have both had significant delays. Last week a carpark collapsed in one of the major shopping centres in Sydney. Sydney has very rigorous building standards but mistakes happen.
comment At which point do you “know” a technology enough to list it on a resume
@DanSingerman I think there is no problem listing a skill that has not been used for a while - as long as that is made clear in the resume. In my resume I do not have a single list of skills - each skill is part of the description of what I did at each job, thus it is clear whether I have used a skill recently.
comment 30 minutes to explain programming to a 15 year old
Well, I generally come in at least fifteen minutes late, ah, I use the side door - that way Lumbergh can't see me, heh heh - and, uh, after that I just sorta space out for about an hour. Yeah, I just stare at my desk; but it looks like I'm working. I do that for probably another hour after lunch, too. I'd say in a given week I probably only do about fifteen minutes of real, actual, work.
