Geeks With Blogs

Andy Johns' Blog Andy's twisted brain....
It's been a while since my last post.... So what have I been up to?

Javascript - up to my eyeballs

Silverlight - which will be really cool, in a couple more releases. v2-b2 is nice, but needs some oomph.

Code reviews - a tech lead's life is all about telling other people why their code sucks

Interviews - hiring good people is a full time job. Finding web developers with real Javascript/CSS/.Net knowledge is very difficult. Every bozo who writes a web page includes javascript/css on their resume, but ask them what a closure is, or why to namespace your js classes and you get heming and hawing. Ask how to identify and fix memory leaks on the browser and you get a lot of blank stares. 

Oh yeah, and turning 40 (yesterday)  - gack!

I'm going to PDC '08! So I plan on sharing what I can here....
