I am a 26 year old father, developer and designer. At my day job, I work as a certified Java and SalesForce developer to create custom web applications for a variety of clients. Any free time I have left over, after parental duties, is spent learning or honing my craft. I aspire to be a developer others can learn from and count on.

comment Ajax call or js to update a cart price
I once saw code ages ago that had floats and doubles constantly converted back and forth. That'll make a person jumpy when it comes to these errors. Say, you should make your comment an answer. I would accept that.

comment Ajax call or js to update a cart price
Because the rounding error is a result of the internal representation of decimal numbers in javascript. There is the chance you could end up with something like 0.1 + 0.2 = 0.30000000000000004. This is a trivial example but enough of them multiplied can result in unwanted values.

@CrazyEddie nope, the interfaces are used one-to-one like com.company.service.foo and com.company.service.foo.impl

Oh, I love where I work, I just couldn't see the practicality. I suppose that is just my inexperience though.

comment My customer wants me to record a video of how I develop his software product
@quickly_now, your still thinking inside the (vhs)box. Betamax? Laserdisk? Flipbooks? The possibility for messing with ambiguous requests is endless.
