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 aspect-oriented programming a misnomer?
+1. Noam Chomsky says that language is what defines cognition, and it is both constrained and based on the way you formulate your thoughts. In other words, you may approach everything as a language feature, but it will not be useful.

@Thorb by not having any in production. Still, how could logging help to convince others?

@Falcon, you might not know that your peers treat you as a forgetful senior, who is just too old to be in a good memory.

comment Floyd's algorithm
If you have never heard of Floyd, you will be unable to figure out his algorithm, because even if you do you'll never know that it is called Floyd's. If you heard, however, you most likely have studied the algorithm before.

comment What's the most absurd myth about programming issues?
@Alan, I hope, that doesn't make you think that a programmer can't learn anything in the university. They (we) can. A lot of stuff. A lot of stuff I see people have troubles formulate and comprehend, let alone to resolve. And that's why the programmers with a degree (we) should be paid better.

comment Is timing exactly how much time each team member spends on a story useful in Scrum?
I log all the time spent regardless of the actual methodology used. I find it very useful for a lot of stuff.

comment How many skills should I list on my resume, CV?
@Aditya, why should one exclude the ones he's a master at, but doesn't want to work on? The more things you're good at the better you are... aren't you?

comment Should I provide some way to disable my software post-delivery?
+1. A year ago an owner of a small Russian software company was sentenced to a couple of years for doing a similar thing.

comment Why are C++ template error messages so horrific?
So you would prefer your programs failing at runtime, shipped, at the hands of a customer, instead of failing at compile-time?

comment Avoid becomming a “Theoretician” programmer
"if you put two Code Cowboys on the same project, it is guaranteed to fail, as they trample on each other’s changes and shoot each other in the foot." — this one is brilliant :)
