  1. First of all congradulations on nearing the end of your studies and good luck with the real world. Did you say that you want to skip off to the states? are you mad? are you seriously considering destroying your life? On a more serious note my advice is when it comes to looking for a job, forget the money concentrate on landing a job that will open doors for you...Experience is the key especially in the IT industry. Once you have the relevant experience under your belt you can hip hop to the states. IT degree gets outdated very quickly so take advantage of your given opportunities. Good Luck.
  2. Salaan All Been away for some time and we have some programmers/developers, even our own little place on SOL . Its interesting to see there are people out there still using prolog, I remember covering a semester doing prolog - if i am completely honest can't remember much about it - did the homework and got the grade . I am currenly working exclusively on c# and although I do think that c# is better incomparison to in terms of performace, it really comes down to individual choice depending on requirements. I personally prefer the syntax. As for jobs being outsourced(china,india..) i must say its the only logical solutions for most companies. As we all well aware a good programmer requires a decent salary companies will be looking into ways to reduce the cost, why not start with the programmers; also with technology advancing projects can be worked on & delivered from any part of the world. A modular approach is something most companies will be looking into(so be a little less greedy and stop damanding so damn much lol... salaama btw Nice to meet U all.

  8. So the night before I left it dawned on me that I hadn't seen anything so I hijacked a cousin (more like bribed him with some marduufs) to take me off we went to Tower bridge at 2am...just as I'm posing to get a nice "city view" picture taken, scotland yards finest pull up. c'mon now, whose at fault? 2am sight seeing? i'll say they deserved an explaination .
