The Lounge is rated Safe For Work. If you're about to post something inappropriate for a shared office environment, then don't post it. No ads, no abuse, and no programming questions. Trolling, (political, climate, religious or whatever) will result in your account being removed.
1. The lounge is for the CodeProject community to discuss things of interest to the community, and as a place for the whole community to participate. It is, first and foremost, a respectful meeting and discussion area for those wishing to discuss the life of a Software developer.
The #1 rule is: Be respectful of others, of the site, and of the community as a whole.
2. Technical discussions are welcome, but if you need specific programming question answered please use Quick Answers[^], or to discussion your programming problem in depth use the programming forums[^]. We encourage technical discussion, but this is a general discussion forum, not a programming Q&A forum. Posts will be moved or deleted if they fit better elsewhere.
4. No politics (including enviro-politics[^]), no sex, no religion. This is a community for software development. There are plenty of other sites that are far more appropriate for these discussions.
5. Nothing Not Safe For Work, nothing you would not want your wife/husband, your girlfriend/boyfriend, your mother or your kid sister seeing on your screen.
6. Any personal attacks, any spam, any advertising, any trolling, or any abuse of the rules will result in your account being removed.
7. Not everyone's first language is English. Be understanding.
Please respect the community and respect each other. We are of many cultures so remember that. Don't assume others understand you are joking, don't belittle anyone for taking offense or being thin skinned.
We are a community for software developers. Leave the egos at the door.
I stumbled upon this article: The coding language used by the most elite developers in finance | eFinancialCareers[^]
I've never heard of K or Q, but apparently programmers of the languages are earning £1k a day in London
Another great earner is OCaml, a language I have heard of because F# was influenced by it, which earns you $200k + a $100k sign-on bonus + a $100-$150k performance bonus.
That's $400-$450k in your first year and $300-$350 every year after, or also about $1k a day
This is a forum with almost 15 million users... Does anyone here know any of these languages (that is, be productive in it)?
If you know someone who knows someone (heck, who knows someone) who uses K, Q or OCaml, I'd be happy to know too
Really, just out of curiosity, not really looking to land a job in finance with any of those languages.

Ahh - you missed the true scam, and they got ya' !
As it turns out, their real motive was to take up as much of your time as possible - they're paid by the minute for minutes beyond the first three. In some cases, it's has a limit so, if they get a real rube, they can't spend the entire day with them.
I found this video in my recommended video feed on YouTube and I actually clicked it and was quite impressed and entertained. I have watched a few more videos by Practical Engineering channel and all were great.
As I was watching this, I could not help but draw various comparisons between Civil/Infrastructure Engineering and software engineering and program/system design and testing. Granted, most of our applications and systems to do not impact people's lives in a "life and death" situation, but crap happens when we don't plan well enough, or test well enough, and even then, with the best planning, bad things will still happen.

Yes, indeed! "Periodic design reviews over the lifetime of the project"? "600 pages postmortem reports"? I've never seen that in our field where some people still resist informal code reviews and hate unit testing. It's true that civil engineering has had more time to develop these methods from the roman aqueducts to the Oroville Dam, but it is still sobering to see how true engineers solve serious problems.
Maybe we should just stop calling what we do "software engineering" and call it for what it is: just hacking.
