comment Software Engineer VS “Harder” Jobs
@Justin C According to the idiom, the one doing the criticising is normally the one to have to walk a mile in the other's shoes. In OP's situation, the Software Engineer is being criticised, therefore it is the software engineer's shoes that must be walked in by the critics.

comment Should you answer programming interview questions with library?
Agreed. For a six element list on a modern computer, the only sort algorithm with a significant cost is bogosort. Just call the default sort and get on with solving real problems.
