comment Any advice from self-taught programmers on competing with more conventional types?
+1 for not taking the path of least resistance. And I think the "nothing guy" is the "greeter" or the person that stands in front of the store. We have those at walmart.

I was worried about putting together a website for that very reason (Over-committing). So what kind of charity work do you do mostly? (I'm gonna take a guess at web design). If so then what kind of organizations do you work with mostly and what sort would you keep your distance from? In addition are there signs for that sort of thing. (shady groups I mean)

Thanks, I'll get in touch with the local community charities. I get the feeling we would probably end up doing a website of some sort. Not that that's a problem or anything lol.

computing space might be a bit of a challenge but since it is in company I think we could get some dev boxes together. I can talk to our system admin about the logistical difficulties in that

As far as facilities go the company owner could provide for that. Speakers not so much as it will most likely be a relatively small group for the event. 10-12 people that know each other.

While I would love to, South Carolina doesn't do nearly as much of this kind of thing as I would like. But thanks for the tip. I'll see if there is anything around that could get me started.

comment Reasons for looking to change a job - What do you give
4. I was laid off due to budget cuts, or project cuts or something or if it is personal your best bet might just be to minimize it as much as possible. (or lie about it if you must lol) And if your on good terms with the previous employer be sure to throw that in there.

comment Does tweeting 9 to 5 hurt job applicants?
The same question can be asked of stack overflow or blogging for that matter if the applicant is tweeing topically related subject matter

comment Is it getting harder to hire VB.NET developers?
To be fair vb.NET's syntax for dealing with unmanaged code with pInvoke and all has been a bit easier on the eyes until .NET 4.0 came out.
