Just an average joe coder for now.

Aspiring to be one of the greatest developers ever.

It never hurts to dream.

comment How is the Trial Period for Softwares generally implemented?
Sounds like a solid guess for me. The only potential problem I can see with this is if the user has had their clock set incorrectly and then installed the software, then the user readjusted the clock correctly later on. Not a very likely situation, but just something that I thought of.

comment Should the variable be named Id or ID?
@JeffK I know, I would never ever sacrifice readability just to write faster or easier.

comment Should the variable be named Id or ID?
@Pramod Really? I find typing ID much more easier than Id because you have to conscientiously let go of the shift key when you are typing the lowercase d. It's rather easy to accidently type two upper case letters when you actually meant to type one upper case and one lower case, because your timing might be slightly off on when you release your shift key.

comment For what reasons should I choose C# over Java and C++?
It runs on every platform.. theoretically, sure. But have you ever tried to port a java app from Windows to Linux? "Nightmare" or "Hell" isn't strong enough to describe the experience.

comment I don't program in my spare time. Does that make me a bad developer?
+1 for the spectacular anecdote. Sometimes we are so obsessed with solving intricate challenges that we often forget perseverance is the key to success.

comment How do you compress ASCII strings into smaller bytes?
This was it. The first two bytes are always in letters and the rest are in numbers, so it could easily fit in 4 bytes as you said. Although I don't know where the arbitrarily number of 4 bytes came from, because 999999 in hex is F423F so it's 3 bytes at most..

comment How do I improve my logic in general and programming in particular?
On the other hand, you are probably way better than you think you are Randy. I've worked with people who were working in the software industry for ages. Whenever I see their code, it just blows my mind but they still would tell me "I don't know much and I still have insane amount of stuff to learn".

comment Why was Objective-C popularity so sudden on TIOBE index?
Also downvoters, please leave a comment so I can improve my post. I'm trying to make the question as constructive as possible.

comment Why was Objective-C popularity so sudden on TIOBE index?
@Caleb Sorry I guess that was a poor way of wording it. Like I said, I do not know objective-C at all. What are some advantages of the language compared to others is what I meant to ask.

comment Are #regions an antipattern or code smell?
I'm willing to wager my left ball that people who hates regions have either never developed a WPF application, or never really used WPF's defining functionalities such as data binding and command binding. Just setting up your code up to make those work takes up a lot of space and you generally don't have to look at them again.

comment Languages on a resume: Is it better to put “C/C++” or “C, C++”?
I think the correct answer for this is it doesn't matter.

comment What non-programming books should a programmer read to help develop programming/thinking skills?
I found this book to be one of the most challenging books to read, but nonetheless a fantastic one.

comment Managed Languages vs Compiled Language difference?
This is what I basically had in mind, but I've come across a lot of people who keeps making this distinction. Thanks for the clear answer.
