comment Low latency technologies for c++, c# and java?
"nobody posts just low latency job role with no other clues or explanations" , oh yes they do. Maybe the only other thing they add is C# or Java or C+, if you find an add that is more explanatory then please send me a link. I have not seen any job ads being posted by technical people, only job agents.

comment Can you get in trouble using programming forums or Q&As at work?
@TheLQ: What problem? What is unethical/unprofessional/x (where x is anything that one would be ashamed to admit) about seeking the professionals advice? Next we would be asking for permission to bring refrence books to work. What is an argument that an employer can have against their programmer to leverage the hive mind of thousands of better progremmers to help him/her to do a better job for their company? I am just intrested in knowing any logic that can justify banning programming forums. The doctos consult the Medical Databases before writing a prescription (or shouldn't they?).

+1 and I agree with Brian, What doeas it mean to ask for permission to use a reference resource? This is not pre school, in a professional environment reference materials are a must to use and not just optional.

@FXquincy : What do you mean he used it against you? And did you just let him/her pay you out for associating with better programmers? I think they just didn't want to give you a raise, using SO was just some screwed excuse to justify it. I am really intrested in what they used as an argument to justify using a web site with experts for free helping their programmer. I really think you have been had. Also I agree with ChrisF, he should have noted you as what is the issue, but just keeping it to himself to use it against you later (for whatever reason) is deceptive and bad management practice.
