How do you group knowledge of technologies such as XML and JSON in your cv?
I am reluctant to put them under Programming Languages "group".
What title should I use for them instead? thanks.
XML is a computer language, but not a programming language. It is reasonable to list it as computer language that you know, but not a programming language.
FWIW, consider also where you might list the following languages that are arguably not programming languages:
- Windows "batch file"
- job control languages
- unix/linux shells such as bash, csh and friends
- editors (which may or may not have commands/macros)
- MS Word, Excel, PPT (and associated WordBasic, VBA etc.)
[Actually I consider XSL and shells to be programming languages. They have variables, comparisons, tests, loops and pass the Turing test...]
Having just had the benefit of a consultant reviewing my CV/Resume ... Paid for by the company not me! Don't have a section/group called "Programming Languages" just have an up-front table of "skills" ... then you don't have to badge them. Other posters have mentioned HR and low-paid trimmers who will just look for key words. So make sure those key words appear somewhere on Page 1. And the guys that haven't been in this space for a while will say things like "why are you even mentioning XML?" ... just like my colleague who "failed" to have "microsoft office" on his CV ... the job he was after included writing documents, handling spreadsheets, and presenting stuff ... lost out to the guy that mentioned all of that "trivial" stuff on his resume
(As opposed to Turkish Cyprus, which is not as f***ed as much of the Euro zone. Odd thought that, would not have expected it a few years ago)
The Turk Cypriot banks didn't have huge piles of Greek govt bonds that got nuked to a fraction of their face value a few years ago. Before then the Greek Cypriot banks were relatively healthy.
Something else I dont get. The banks are short of cash, so they put a 10% tax on money already deposited with them.
How does that give them more cash? 100% of the deposited money is in their vaults (erhum) already!
Because real banks don't store deposits in a money bin until the customer wants them back. Instead most of them are used to fund loans, buy bonds, etc; to generate enough income to pay interest on savings accounts and cover the banks operating expenses. When the Greek bonds blew up they ended up with a lot less assets backing their deposits than they had deposits. Beyond a certain point this results into a bank being unable to conduct business and going bust.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
