Apparently the demographics at X vs Q say some interesting things.
For instance, the workforce at Q is far more racially diverse and has a far higher female/male ratio. (Though, either oddly or interestingly, Caucasian females remain very rare.)
Does that suggest a selection bias on X's part, or that these things actually correlate with who is perceived as top talent?
And yet, the group that regularly goes to lunch are all Caucasian asian males. At least none are too into sports!
I have coworkers with relatively cooler names.
Office guitar hasn't been used in awhile. We'll see where it goes.
Debugging browser code kinda sucks. Even poorly architected mundane web programming is more interesting. That said, things are slated to improve...
...after we hire a replacement for the guy who was supposed to be my Buddy (X called it "mentor"), who's last day was yesterday.
Web anything is funner* than C++.
My appeal to limit the use of AOP was well received. Screw you Lieberherr.
I've inherited responsibility for all of Buddy's code. Thankfully, he was a good programmer. Ruefully, it's more C++ than web development... to be fair, some of it is pretty nifty C++.
Dojo has interesting prospects. But has changed enough version to version that documentation is scattered.
Lots of frustrations. But. I'm n00b and have to deal with current bugs before potentially fun dev arrives. #potential
And I get mailed a "You should come interview with us" ever 3 days or so. So options exist if it doesn't pan out.
* "The reason the use of funner and funnest has been discouraged is that fun was until recently only a noun. Nouns do not have comparative (-er) and superlative (-est) forms, but mass nouns such as fun can be modified by more and most (e.g., “I have more water,” or “he has the most courage”). But while some of the stodgier English reference books still pretend fun is not an adjective, most English speakers moved on long ago, and the adjectival fun is rarely questioned. Ultimately, if we accept that fun is an adjective—and we have no choice, because it’s common—then we also have to accept funner and funnest. Comparatives and superlatives of one-syllable adjectives usually take the -er and -est endings, and there’s no good reason fun should be any different." - grammarist.com
