comment Transitioning from Java & C to C++
It should be. If it's not, something was wrong with the design.

comment Use unnamed object to invoke method or not?
@JanHudec You are right about the free function and namespace. I've been coding C# for too long :)

comment Use unnamed object to invoke method or not?
@ChenOT From the looks, your class does not need data members. Maybe it does something under the hood we don't know, but at face value, you could pass your constructor parameters to get_content() instead and get rid of the class. That way you don't need an object at all.

comment Use unnamed object to invoke method or not?
Personally, I think if those two (constructor and parameterless function) are the only public interfaces, the whole class can be made into a single static class where every other function is a static helper and every piece of formerly class data is local variables that must be passed between the functions. That way, the interaction of the functions is way better documented. Side effects of methods (for example modifying class data) is hard to track so if this class can be made easier, I'd go for easier.

comment How to identify potential for becoming a programmer
@Jubbat There is a big difference between "riddles" and an IQ test: riddles have this aha-moment where you get it and then it's dead easy. In an interview stuation I agree that it only tests if you have heard this riddle before. I would downvote riddles. An IQ test is straight logical reasoning and has no aha-moment. It can be solved trough thinking about it and it only takes time. Time is limited on the test. If you gave me the same IQ test I solved years ago, I would probably come out with the same result, but I'd need the same time. The fact that I already did it before is irrelevant.

comment Is it ever OK to commit non-working code?
@ThomasOwens my point is that although your access to said backup server is only sporadic, committing to it should be a priority over making your code work. You can always make your code work on another machine, even other people on your team could make the code work on their machines. If it sits on your machine only, the customer will most likely not care if it works. The customer cares for a new release from the build server that in turn draws from the server repository.

comment Enforcing a uniform Scrum approach to all teams within a department
Just to clarify: I assume the "manager" is also the product owner, because there is no "manager" role in SCRUM.
