    Just my opinion. Nothing more than that, so I won't give an essay to back it up. Without further ado (and pretty much in this order):

    Start out with a language like C++ which has all the object...

    I don't even know what I would use it for that I can't already do....I just...want it.

    I honestly wonder where we go now, and how much benefit it provides. You could always make a language that it is a little more optimal, but the existing languages that have already carved out their...

    Fair enough. Just for the sake of argument, what kind of new language would blow your socks off? Basic features, things it avoids, etc.

    I think you nailed it at "easier to maintain", for the most part. No installations and updates, no OS or application conflicts (for the most part). That's the beauty of the web. The ugly part of...

    Tornadoes get my vote for scariest weather event/natural disaster. I'm probably biased because I live close to Tornado Alley. Nevertheless, they look like a great howling demon from hell, and if they...

    Cool, so the database is where the organization comes in, then. That is, the agreed upon names and allowed parameters for variables belonging to each customer. It's just weird when you are cobbling...

    Web Development, Session Management

    I've been learning some web stuff recently, and one big question on my mind...which surprisingly I couldn't bring right up on a google search (though I'm probably expressing it wrong), is how session...
  10. To those for whom programming is more than hobby, what does your downtime look like?

    It seems to me anyway, that if you are in the industry, or trying to break into the industry, learning is a never-ending task. I can only watch a movie or surf the web in my downtime, my brain is too...

    Depending on your sense of humor, I have a "funny" story for you that is kind of related. When I was still early on in my school career, I was looking for potential side jobs, and I saw an ad for a...

    It just sounds like you are really good. I'm in school and I've learned/am learning plenty. If you are getting stuck in projects, perhaps you need to look into learning design patterns, if you...

    ^^^^
    That's a super point about the "ask them" portion. I have to admit that I didn't get as much mileage out of that as I should have. Very good suggestions.

    And yes, I have to say that although I think the technical portion is the gateway you have to pass through, and I hope I succeeded and do succeed in other interviews...a whole hell of a lot of this...

    Well, I just got done with my first interview. I admire you guys who say you don't get nervous before interviews, because that is certainly not the case with me...lol.

    Anyhow, it was the usual...

    So, I've got some interviews lined up for the next couple weeks, so it goes without saying that my initial freakout was unwarranted. I was surprised to see that the company whose rep gave me a hard...

    Thanks for the feedback. I understand what you guys are saying about attitude. Believe me, I'm highly aware that the above was a pure ego meltdown. I guess I do need to learn to take things in stride...
  18. If you've begun work RECENTLY, how did you find your way in?

    Not to be a hater, but I'm not too interested in hearing from those who made a pre-2000 debut, or shortly thereafter. Leading up to and shortly after the .com boom, anything with a pulse and a bit of...

    I am with the "you don't plan the next big thing" crowd. Just try to become damn good at whatever task or project is in front of you right now. If the stars align such that you have a brilliant idea,...

    That's a good point. I think the word "stupid" is a big subjective. To a Nikola Tesla, everybody would seem stupid, but that's setting the bar pretty damn high. But what you say is pretty much...
