I love software development, and technology of all kinds. I have a boy and a girl and a beautiful wife, all of whom I adore. I practice Southern Chinese Kung Fu, and hope that my kids will too. I write code and play boardgames in my spare time.

I currently work as a JEE engineer in Edina, MN.

comment Why do technical/programming phone screens focus on inheritance?
I didn't ask why reliance on OO-based questions is problematic, but I'm still interested in the answer to what I did ask. As to your suggested questions: they're a bit more advanced, so would be useful in getting an idea of whether a candidate has more advanced knowledge.

comment Why do technical/programming phone screens focus on inheritance?
Can you expand on why /reliance on inheritance as the primary design solution to an OO problem is a bit problematic/?
