I'm a programmer, currently working on my startup, econemon.com [sorry, German only, yet], which builds specialized middleware to use in the growing number of energy monitoring and smart metering applications.

comment Does Java have automatic memory management?
Also, the actual GC strategy (and the way memory is organized) used by the JVM can be adjusted with startup parameters. See oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/gc-tuning-6-140523.html

comment How crucial are computer science topics toward getting a job?
@Gamecat - +1 for that. When I interview someone, I value the ability to describe where and how they not know something as quite a reliable indication that I'm talking to a pro. It already takes quite some understanding of a field to know one's own limitations.

@luis - unfortunately, not having a CS background doesn't necessarily mean someone is good, either. But you didn't imply that, did you? I sometimes miss some CS in my background, that's for sure.

comment Should I switch tech.?
Yes, Facebook is in PHP, and it's probably among the most cited examples for how PHP can't be that bad and how eventually, the language doesn't even nearly matter as much as what you write in it. Wordpress is in PHP too, and although the code seems to get a lot of flak, it's still an important piece of software.
