Hello.

I love helping on stackoverflow, as I often end up learning as much as I teach. Iron sharpens iron.

My best language experience lies in C++, Various assembly languages, C, Python.

I'm very proud of most of the work I've done in various fields - console games you may have played, high frequency trading, mobile applications, advanced web applications.

comment What tools or techniques are useful for describing an unfamiliar codebase?
That's clever. Do you typically do that for many classes or do you save it for when you come across a specific class that's unclear to you?

@ratchetfreak I wouldn't say that in such absolute terms. A tool could isolate code that's always called, for example. Or only run many stack levels deep.

Thanks @Dima. Doxygen is fantastic at handling some of that. (I didn't want to steer the answers by dropping that one tool name that I know of). Kudos on the level-headed "human interaction" component as well. :)
