Should be titled, "Why You Shouldn't Hire Me As A Systems Architect".
For example, I’ve implemented classes that manage database tables, so it implements an abstract class that needs an “update” method. Well, some tables when updating need to do more than just “update” a record, such as insert a log into a side table. While that might be innocent enough at first, I’ve seen quite a few methods continue to grow in their sets of responsibilities.
If that, or something similar, doesn't come naturally to him, he doesn't understand OOP, and is writing over his head. He sounds like someone who has primarily learned procedural programming, like C++ was originally taught.
So we can summarize: "I do not use OOP because I've seen it done badly."
Good point, eh?
Let's wait a little and that guy will have seen Function Programming done badly, and then he won't use functions either...
Oh sanctissimi Wilhelmus, Theodorus, et Fredericus!
In its move to the open-source, cross-platform .NET Core, Microsoft will support Visual Basic in the upcoming .NET 5 and is expanding the programming language's supported application types to help VB developers migrate their code
Sorry, this news item might be a few decades old
I joke with love, even though it's been years since I've used or written about the lovely language
The EU has adopted a new Circular Economy Action Plan today, which includes a number of goals that the EU will, as a whole, strive towards. One such goal on that list is introducing the “right to repair” for EU citizens
I'll be able to finally dig those old WinCE phones out of my drawer!
Government can give you nothing but what it takes from somebody else. A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take everything you've got, including your freedom.-Ezra Taft Benson
You must accept 1 of 2 basic premises: Either we are alone in the universe or we are not alone. Either way, the implications are staggering!-Wernher von Braun
No, and neither do Americans. The law is to stop device manufacturers implementing policies and designs that make it impossible to repair devices. It is in the manufacturer's best interests that you buy new rather than repair so they take steps to make sure that happens. The EU is trying to make those steps illegal. So things like stopping the manufacturer of replacement parts after a few years, making devices where you can't replace the battery, stopping old devices from receiving software updates, degrading the performance of old phones automatically. It's to tackle those kinds of things.
Don't worry though...they'll still sell versions of the phones that can't be repaired in America
Amount of iron in the atmosphere is the difference between night and day.
Who has activated the big electro-magnet in the satellit, it was supposed to be a secret weapon... was that you, mini-me?
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
They can tell us absolutely everything about these exoplanets without having received even received one, single photon of light from them!
I mean, we already knew that they're total geniuses who can take absolutely zero data, and make a frieze of what exoplanets look like, what they're composed of, etc, but now it turns out that they can even predict the weather on exoplanets! People study for years to learn to predict Earth's weather, but cant get it as brilliantly and completely correct as astronomers can for exoplanets!
I'm totally gobsmacked by these utter geniuses, who can't tell us a damned thing about our own solar system without getting 70% of it wrong, despite the planet-sized piles of data they've got to work with, but can tell us absolutely everything about exoplanets!
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
