If it weren't for the U.S. having multiple aircraft carriers, the modern-day world might be divided into two different super-powers...Imperial Japan and Nazi Germany.

Unpopular Programming Languages That Are Still Lucrative

CosaNostra Pizza Inc Scala (380 comments)

I've been programming as an employed Java web app developer for a few years. If hypothetically, there is another company looking to hire for a Scala developer position, would it be a good idea to take it? Assume no previous Scala experience is required and the company is willing to fully train on said language. Assume its also a great company

UPS: We've Been Hacked

CosaNostra Pizza Inc UPS sucks (62 comments)

I hate UPS. Their nearest pickup/dropoff location to me is 35 miles away. For any special delivery instructions, you have to pay a membership fee + a charge for each package you want delivered per instructions. Fedex pickup/dropoff locations, on the other hand, are ubiquitous and there's one just 1 mile from my house.

Ask Slashdot: What Do You Wish You'd Known Starting Out As a Programmer?

CosaNostra Pizza Inc Re:Pick a different job. (548 comments)

Came here to say this!

And it sucks everywhere except NYC/SF/Austin/Boston

I probably should have gone into some kind of engineering.

After 12 years, I left electrical engineering to go back to school for a CS degree. There was just no work out there in the U.S. unless you had lots of experience with ASIC design or work in the power industry with a professional engineers license. Now, I'm an enterprise software application developer and loving it.

Ask Slashdot: What Do You Wish You'd Known Starting Out As a Programmer?

CosaNostra Pizza Inc Re:C++ is not the language you start with (548 comments)

Um, why? I don't find it difficult. It may not be the best language to start out with if you are in high school and want to learn object oriented programming but it is easier than say...C++. It has garbage collection, the JVM compiler is mature, its multi-platform, it has libraries and frameworks for whatever you need and its prolific in the enterprise space. Also, its used in Android applications (in addition to C). Java is not going away any time soon.
