comment Interview question: which is the time period estimated by you to learn Java
A good programmer can just pick up java syntax in a few hours. Especially someone strong with OOP. Now, getting used to it, getting proficient enough to write good code and most importantly understanding the little nuances of any language can take a long long time. Its been 5 years and I still don't think I know enough C#

@anto No, I'm from Mumbai. I used to teach at Aptech a few years ago and I've met/taught a lot of B.E. and Bsc(CS/IT) students. I know what you feel like. But its good that you're trying to learn.. not many people do.

@anto :) its what I thought. I've met a good deal of guys done/doing a B.E. Programming is more "write a program to print asterisk in a triangle" Just start programming.... thats all you need to do. (1) Get some books (2) Read tutorials online (3) Look at code, download samples, open source apps. Then you'll know the diff. between you college programs and real world programs and why you need testing. =)

@anto Anyway, I'm assuming again you've probably NOT written some real world programs, all you've done so far is write one page programs that print ASCII on screen or something. When you write a real world program that is supposed to a number of even seemingly simple tasks you run into the things @jmquigley talks about and there is NO way you can get it correct. Thats why you need testing.

@anto Its highly likely your from an Indian school? I don't mean it badly, I just might have an idea of your background with the B.E. down here....

comment How do programmers in the West see programmers in the East?
@Evan we will only really make good money if we were to come over and work at your wage.. then come back here with all that money (or send it over here) which is why so many indians want to move out of the country. Your welcome :)

@pekka yes I do, I do plan to apply, but, I'm just waiting for an acknowledgement/appreciation letter for the work I've done (because not many people believe me) Hopefully that letter will come from the Chief General Manager of the largest bank in India =P (which happens to be my high profile client)

@victor thanks but places like SO makes me see I'm shooting fast balls while there are others shooting bullets.

comment Why is it so hard to find anything on MS site?
@eestein :) true, infact their naming strategy should be a little better! (Like Astoria>Ado.net data services>WCF data services) Like I said I'm just seeing too much MS hate lately and I don't like it. Thats mostly why I posted my opinion.

@eestein I was only talking in terms of efficiency, i mean googling is the fast way to find a page, so if you're looking for a fast of doing things there it is, but of course, its not like the pages and categories don't exist.
