I've recently completed my MSc Computer Science from a UK institution, and have moved back to the US to begin work. I write in my spare time, enjoy cooking, and apparently am addicted to signing up for SE sites :).

comment Why is it called a 'Here Document'?
Since when is a prettily formatted string a "document" necessarily? The one implies data connotation that a heredoc doesn't necessarily have. +1 for making me smile though :)

answered I'm a student learning C++ and I've recently found out about Ruby. Would learning (some of) Ruby help me with C++ or would it just confuse me?

comment How could I make automatic tests for GUI?
@Gangnus My coworker informs me that even the emulator makes life difficult for debugging the GUI unless you have something designed for it, since it's a whole extra layer to deal with. As for modelling the tests, we use a tool to create flowcharts outlining the path through the program; our tool I think is made in-house, but it has the ability to generate lists of all possible traversals of the flowchart (which become our test scripts), which sounds like a feature you ought to be able to find easily enough or do yourself

@Gangnus Drat, I was hoping at least one would. I'm not familiar with Android-specific development, unfortunately

comment Should I develop a product with minimal use so I can say I developed it?
I plan to do this project regardless; I'm making software that I need and can't find a good version of. But I do plan to look for some projects I can join onto later, once this is done.

@ThorbjørnRavnAndersen I plan to use this software myself, quite often. I don't understand how I gave the impression that I'd be slapping something together roughshod and throwing it out there, but that's not my intention in the least.

@ThorbjørnRavnAndersen Well if I'm releasing it, it'll WORK perfectly fine. The question is why on earth you'd WANT something like that. It's an application much more suited to a PC than a tablet or smartphone.
