I work in web-related development these days. Previously, I worked on ROSA Linux distribution derived from Mandriva. In (post)graduate school I developed static program analysis tools, and carried on some research on the subject.

My blog "A Foo walks into a Bar" is hosted on my home site coldattic.info.


If you know any Languages specifically designed to make static verification easier, please, answer the question linked.

comment Is a company order to switch to a certain IDE a red flag?

comment Space around operators? a=b/2; or a = b / 2; What are the arguments?

comment The business and architecture challenge behind creating effective user stories
@maple_shaft Before an appliance that reads minds of people is invented (and if it's not banned because it can reveal a scary truth that most people are stupid), that's the best approach I can offer in such an environment.

Judging by the length of your post, which I haven't read, you are a natural fit for a PhD.

comment What can I do about multiple coworkers who constantly question my knowledge?
Are you sure they aren't participating in some kind of a jeopardy challenge using you as an expert, i.e. the best guy on the team who can help them with that kind of questions?

comment Are first person comments distracting and unprofessional?
@msw, in Russian, for example, passive voice constructs are more common and are understood more easily due to some cultural differences. (And no, I did not write that sentence in passive voice on purpose!)
