I'm a guy from Austria who just enjoys coding and finding solutions to problems. At the moment I'm primary coding in VB.NET/C# and Python, but in my spare time I try to keep my skills up with Vala, QT, Java, PHP and JQuery.


It's not like I mind being downvoted...but heck, I wanna know WHY!
You know, coding is a little bit like jumping from a rooftop while you think you can fly...it seems like a good idea at that time.

comment What does it mean to write “good code”?
Good code is if you look at it after two years and your first thought isn't "Dude, wtf".

Are you just looking for a color scheme, like the Tango one?

comment What's your favourite quote about programming?
@Stefano Palazzo: Read his autobiography "Just For Fun". Oh, and in case you meant the "sex is better when it's free"-part...ahm...that's OT here. ;)

comment Biggest mistake you've ever made
I agree partly with you, just because someone has more experience (in years) doesn't mean that (s)he's a better programmer. There are a lot of programmers out there, which can write 'xx years of experience' on their resume but have no clue what they are doing.

Having a phone is only a good thing until someone passes your phone extension on to some clients.

I hate those loud and noisy keyboards. I prefer modern, flat and close to noiseless keyboards, because I can't stand anymore to hear that noise for more then 8 hours a day.

Or a good SSD (I'd prefer the SSD).

+1 because this is so true and I wish so much I could migrate my work-environment to Linux (I'm writing .NET Software for Windows...go figure).

@Victor Hurdugaci: I disagree...most of the troubles I run in are scenarios which I couldn't even think up because I wrote the software. Additionally, clients like to throw angrily stuff at my head after three months because "they could never really work with it", which could have easily been avoided if somebody else would have looked at it (or the clients would have opened their mouth). I can test my software for functionality, but not for usability.
