comment What is the average job duration in software engineering positions?
was hoping that there were studies on the subject, but given the absence of any in the replies, this is a well-thought-out response. Thank you.

comment What is the average job duration in software engineering positions?
Curious to hear how long employers expect their members to stick around on average, and what the team members themselves would consider to be "a good run".

comment Computer Science: Arts or Science?
I voted this up, but I feel that the CSE should be elaborated on. I went to an engineering school at Uni and was originally going to major as a CE (Computer Engineering). However, a CSE program was created after my 2nd year and I immediately transferred because of my interest in software development. For me, CSE was the closest I could come to majoring in Software Engineering, an area where my school only offered one course.

comment Is C++ suitable as a first language?
As someone who has taught a 2nd-level college programming course to high school students in a 2 week span (It was an "interesting" challenge), I can tell you it can be done. A strategy for success can be to focus on certain parts of the language to start. For example, you can teach a programming course using C++ but teaching only C concepts and using almost entirely C syntax.

comment Why are there so few female programmers?
Also, don't count out the economic classes of those who are able to to get that schooling. The lack of gender bias may be the norm of those who can afford to attend.

comment How many lines of code can a C# developer produce per month?
I disagree. If sections of code exist in the original that make no sense in the port, then they are never considered 'ported' and hence, never counted. OTOH, creating a feature and support set for the original can give a more meaningful indication of progress-to-completion. Simply put, the progress metric is only worth the effort one is willing to put into generating and maintaining it.
