Get Real

  • People who are more interested in the buzz words and CS theory than actual experience and a history of practical application of skills are a perpetual thorn in the side of the programming industry.
  • Don’t look down on other programmers because they don’t fit your model definition of a programmer, they just might be better than you.
  • If 99 out of 100 candidates fail your interview then you are looking for something that doesn’t exist.
  • Without a varied group of developers in your team you will suffer from a lack of creativity.
  • Don’t test a CS curriculum, test the ability to create.
  • If you ever finish learning, then your career as a programmer is over. Go study law.

In short
Look for someone who truly understand the concepts, who can offer creative and alternative ideas, and who shows the ability to grow as a programmer. Then you will finally find a real programmer.

  1. I've been very excited by this whole 3D printing project, so I stored calling my wife over to the display and exhibiting her various things you could obtain from Thingiverse. She's been in a vacation temper, which implies she's been in a cookie best bootie slippers baking temper, and so she asked me to see if there have been any cookie cutters. A visible illustration of chord height The angular tolerance limits the angle between the normals of adjacent triangles. Some software program also specify this tolerance as a value between zero and 1. Unless a better setting is important to achieve smoother surfaces, the default worth of 15 levels is really helpful. The chord height is the utmost distance that your software program will enable between the floor of the unique 3D model and the floor of the STL file.
