„I'm an expert in some things, good at others, and quite green in many others. That will be true of every developer for their entire careers, and I am no exception!“ - Jason C. McDonald
Where can I sign?
Ahhh yes, forgot the bragging...
we had an external developer, who should write some merging of two data sources. It ran for about 2h before some scheduler decided to kill a hanging process. It was about 50k entries each and should have taken much less time, so I took a look. After i was done, it was done in under 5 minutes and I did not have to do much.
Saving intermediate search results to have them available saved a huge portion of the time. Early fail returns in comparisons another big chunk.
But to show the other side as well: I am currently into learning F# and I fail even on the simplest of tasks, which I could do in my sleep in C# or C++.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
