comment Sign Language Recognition
I'm not experienced at all with any of the above, it just seemed like image recognition was not the "right way", so I was just wondering if there was a particular reason you suggested it is all.

comment Sign Language Recognition
Why add the intermediate step of image recognition, when it would be much easier to work off of raw data from the gloves?

comment Interviewing by providing an application to work on?
In regard to your first point, I think that if you are applying for a position and are put off by having to put forth some effort in order to be considered, then perhaps you are not the kind of developer they are looking for. As a college student, I personally would not mind doing a few hours extra work "for free" to get a decent job for an employer who is interested in more than if I sound like I know what I'm doing. That being said, it would have to be weighted significantly more than just a screening when considering the applicant.

comment Working as a sole developer: getting code looked over
I have this problem as well (with for-fun projects, though), only I am lucky enough to have a few close programmer friends willing to look through my code.

comment Markup languages syntax
@greyfade: I meant the equivalent as understood by the DOM. But in your examples, the "a": ... would need to be wrapped in its own object, unless you mean to say that there can only be one anchor in a given scope. Also, the question focused on using a curly brace syntax as markup, not data serialization. That being said, S-expressions actually are a good alternative to nested tags like XML.

comment Markup languages syntax
I meant something that could be a stand-in replacement for XML, duplicating the nested object and attribute functionality. JSON comes close, but is a data serialization format, not markup, whereas XML covers the ground of both. Consider the XML <a href="foo.com">foo</a> versus its (more or less) JSON equivalent: { "tagName": "a", "attributes": { "href": "foo.com" }, "childNodes": [], "textNode": "foo" }

comment Markup languages syntax
TBH, I don't particularly like the tag syntax either, but it is superb at what it does, and I don't know any better general (i.e. NOT a DSL like Markdown) markup syntax, or how it could be improved.

comment Does it make sense to ask, “What is the difference between Design Pattern and Algorithm?”
@SF - I would probably argue that design patterns are to algorithms like data structures are to functions, or OOP is to functional programming.

comment What is beautiful code in C++, and why do most programmers care that much?
See (this question)[programmers.stackexchange.com/q/65216/8823]. Not because you're not a programmer, but because there's some good description of why beautiful code is good
