I graduated from Washington State University in Computer Science (undergrad + masters). I've spent over 10 years in software development for a National Laboratory, a startup engineering company, and a nuclear processing plant. This has provided me with a diverse set of experiences and skills. I have worked extensively with C++ (w/ MFC, STL, & Boost), C#, Python, and Qt. I'm also comfortable with VB.Net, and HTML/XML, as well as tools like Visual Studio, JIRA, and Subversion. I have a strong background in mathematics & graphics and have delved into graph & network theory, information visualization, data analytics, SCADA/HMIs, and artificial intelligence.

Also, I'm not quite as old as I look.

It has been a few years now. I'd love to hear what your final decision was, and how it worked out for you.

comment How to manage accidental complexity in software projects
Ahh, but you seem to have been able to write a clean answer to this question on your first try. (And a very cogent one, at that.) Maybe you're just Feynman in disguise.

comment How to manage accidental complexity in software projects
@pdr: As a dev lead, I am considering a requirement for interns and rookies that peer assistance requests are put in writing for precisely that reason. (It sounds a bit draconian, so I probably won't enforce it, but the lesson is a powerful one.)

comment When do you rebuild an application or keep on fixing the existing one
@WarrenP, I agree with Peter: When the code contains hundreds of huge monolithic functions, highly coupled in a tangled spaghetti of undocumented connections (combined with stratified layers of unused boneyard code), creating unit tests can be more demanding than a re-write

@FrustratedWithFormsDesigner: Go ahead -- count it all. I still think getting all the way to 500M LOC (over 10x the size of Windows 7) seems preposterous. (Not to mention impossible).

comment Is it appropriate for interviewers to ask candidates for their Stack Exchange user name?
"I have never been employed to contribute to Stack-Exchange, and until that changes, it's completely part of my private, personal life." You make a strong point (and this is exactly the issue that I was wrestling with in my question). So does that mean that you would consider the following interview question overly intrusive: "Do you consider your SO/SE-Prog profile to be fairly representative of your professional expertise and communication skills?"

@FrustratedWithFormsDesigner: Much better, thanks. +1 for the suggestion of asking "leading questions" first.
