I work as a PHP developer at Pentalog where we develop the largest dating site in Europe.

I thrive in challenging environments and am never afraid to get my hands dirty.

My passions include computer programming, psychology and poker.

comment Can the version of Git vary between team members?
OK, I looked a bit at the changelog for a few of the versions, but the damn thing is too vast and long. However, I didn't find anything really significant, so you're probably right about the backwards-compatibility...

Once you start writing software that is more than a few hundred lines long, you'll see the benefits of unit tests...

comment What to do when I just don't know what's wrong?
@GilbertLeBlanc 's suggestion is actually extremely valuable. During sleep, the brain works actively at solving problems you encountered during the day. It happened to me countless times: I would stare for hours at a problem or piece of code without being able to figure it out. The next morning, when I go back to it, the answer just pops up in a matter of minutes...

comment Is the development of CLI apps considered “backward”?
You're right, but keep in mind that for the masses of (stupid) computer users, GUIs will be the only thing they know and see... this is especially true if you consider the fact that the GUI is older than a lot of them...

comment How can I salvage my internship?
@MLowry I think that's bad advice. Staying at a workplace you hate will wear you down, physically and especially psychologically. You'll go into a depression, hate every moment and regret that decision every day. Why go through that ? It would make sense to do it for 6 months if the financial side would be extraordinary. But it probably isn't, given that he's at the absolute start of his career.
