I work -or have worked- with:
- PHP (OOP, with or without Zend Framework, Symfony)
- MySQL (including triggers, Foreign Keys and stored procedures)
- C (ANSI C99, but C11 is looking promising)
- COBOL (Micro-Focus) NOT VOLUNTARILY
- HTML & CSS
- current OS's: Windows 7, Linux (Slackware, Debian 7), OSX (10.9)
- C++ (Visual C++, but only in my spare time)
I don't like:
- Solutions that are needlessly complex
- Answers with Regular expressions to solve a problem that didn't require Regex's
- People treating StackOverflow as a code generator
- No acceptance or UP-votes for people who deserved it.
- Did I mention I don't like Java/COBOL?
Stuff I find to be true:
- Java is the new COBOL
- If your solution relies on more than 3 regular expressions at any given time, you're part of the problem.
