[humour] Interviews with Average Programmers

Recommended Posts

Or, more accurately, sub-average programmers, imo. Or maybe just average first-year computing students.

Containg such pearls as this:

Interviewer: So tell me,what languages do you know and use regularly?

me: Oh, lots.

Interviewer: Specifically, can you name a few?

 

me: Sure. I’m most comfortable with Java 2 , but I also know Java 1.4, Java 5, even some Java 6. I know Java Swing and of course Java Collections pretty well. Some Java Servlets too.

Interviewer: Ok, those are all the same language. Do you know anything else besides Java?

me: Er lang–

Interviewer: Oh, Erlang, really? What have you done with Erlang?

me: No sorry, I was starting to say to myself, "Err, languages besides Java…". I’ll have to think on it some more.

 

It's short, and it will probably make you at least chuckle.

heheh. No, a sub-average programmer would know multiple languages: VB6, VBScript, VB.Net :p

 

Reminds me of an email I received last week: "Hi kikz, I noticed you documented the system will use ExtJs extensively. Only Java 1.4 is installed in the call centres, but hopefully 1.5 will be installed by the time the system goes live".

 

ExtJs is a Javascript GUI framework. :)

Hehe. A little gem I stumbled upon the other week from a project I worked on years ago:

 

Dim isChecked as Boolean = IIf(cbCheckbox.Checked, True, False)
