I'm a C# developer focused on developing Free and Open Source Software under OSI approved licensing.

I'm a co-founder/Lead Architect of a small group of self taught, non formalized education, developers looking to bring free software to businesses and individuals. We're currently developing 2 different projects, one is a business solution and the other a solution for the individual.

I have previously worked as a Military Police Investigator for the US Army Criminal Investigation Command focusing on drug and gang crimes, as well as a Military Police Investigator working general crimes.

comment Why didn't “cloud computing” offer appear earlier?
With all the Cybercrime going on, I honestly think it's just a matter of time before everything goes back in house.

comment Why are Java servers so scarce and costly?
@BrianKnoblauch especially with the advances the .NET framework is making in the web app area. I don't see Java fading quite like PHP will be. People will soon realize that they can do with Java what they can do with PHP. only a more scalable solution. I think the only way Java will fade is if something better comes along AND Oracle craps all over Java. But you're right, Java will be going the way of COBOL in the future...only being used by banks that don't want to pay to update their systems for decades :)

comment How to prevent code from leaking outside work?
Even on large projects, developers should still have access to the entire source because my code could be interacting different than expected with another persons code, but I wouldn't know that and wouldn't be ableto know the best way to fix it without being able to see their code.

"...in almost any situation." The vast majority of programmers aren't working on projects like an entire operating system...common sense should apply to the term almost any situation.

comment How to prevent code from leaking outside work?
The very point of a Development Team is to work together to solve the problem that the program needs to solve. I may know how to do this, but I'm getting a compile error when trying to build my new code and have no idea what's causing it. I shoot an email to a coworker, he comes over when he has the time (after he's finished with his block he's on...say 5-10 minutes). I work on something else for a few minutes, he comes over, we look it over, bam he see's I misspelled something. That's only a few minutes vs. banging you head for hours. It just simply cuts the idea of a team out of the equation

@itsbruce I don't believe all that. As someone who has had a security clearance (Top Secret) while I was in the Army, I know for a fact that you only get access to theinformation required to do your job. An Army Private (or even a Specialist before he was demoted) would not have access to State Department cables unless they were passed off for intel analysis by the Army...by a Private...which isn't going to happen.

The third option is also a way to easily introduce bugs in other sections of the code by not knowing how it's all going to work together. A Dev needs access to the entire code base to be affective in almost any situation.

comment What is the right way to version control a password protected archive?
It has been edited to discuss something locally. Which is something you should probably do Nav on your OP since it doesn't state it anywhere.
