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.

@Goran, amzing! By the way, this answer characterizes the test subject quite precisely.

And the resumes are always exaggerated because job requirements are unreasonably high. -1 to you and +1 to programmers.stackexchange.com/questions/64822/…

comment Do job postings exaggerate their requirements?
Oh, it's too dangerous to disclose this 75% rule as bad coders may read us! Try to guess what requirement they would drop according to ``75% rule'' with these job requirements: 1) C++ experience; 2) self-motivated; 3) team player; 4) fast-learner.

-1. That's not what "feature branches" are for; it contradicts their definition as "temporary branches that merge when the development of a feature is over".

comment Why are objects passed by reference?
@Mason, how come you don't know the explanation? The issue in your example is fixed with a single & character. What it proves is that C++ leaves the user with two options instead of one—which is a better way to go! Additionally, you misuse C++ (by making a newbie mistake)—and try to make it sound like a proof that C++ object model is inferior.

comment How do managers know if a person is a good or a bad programmer?
@biziclop, actually, I don't know if managers do it well most of the time. This assumption was added to avoid any flamewars between managers and coders, and to get better answers, which is the case here. :-)
