You are missing the point. Transfering to another employer on H1B is easy. The problem is with getting a green card. If you want one of those, you are tied to the employer who files for you. During the 2000-2008 years, this process took about 5-6 years, recently it is much faster, I was waiting 7 years for a GC. So you are pretty much stuck with the current employer unless you are willing to restart the process. Some of them even make you repay all the legal and other costs associated with GC, if you quit before 2 years from them incurring it.
Not available in iOS. In related news, the smartphone share of iOS in US rose by 4% while Andriod dropped by 2%.
... US will be deprived of all hackers, nobody will dare to probe systems for security for fear of exorbitant punishment, the country's infrastructure will be vulnerable and in serious danger. Further, the curiosity of young people is turned away from computer systems at a time when we are suffering under a crucial shortage of computer nerds. If there ever is a next war, it will have a strong cyber component and the US will be so painfully inadequate it will feel like slaughter by the Russians and/or Chinese. Those prosecutors should be shot for treason as a matter of national cybersecurity.
Well, at least we finally know why the Chinese kids are so good in school.
I vote for: "Please, can you take Kansas with you? Thanks. B.O."
Actually, where I come from, software engineering technical universities are inferior to computer science which is taught in proper universities along with math and physics as science. Not as a practical engineering discipline. So for me, based on my educational background being called engineer is sort of an insult. Engineers are guys who learn how stuff works, but not why. They are capable of executing, but not of complex individual effort.
Clearly different countries view the term differently. But since I don't have an engineering degree, I prefer the words 'software developer' or 'software architect' for the work I am doing. But it is quite clear that here on slashdot many equate software developer with some kind of code monkey.
The water is muddled even further because I studied software engineering as a subdiscipline of computer science. Meaning the process and methodology of developing software programs.
bipartisanship: partisanship by two parties
Why would anyone be so stupid and vote if you are an immigrant. Let's assume that you will want to become a citizen as immigrant and one day you do. Now they find out you have voted before you became a citizen. That means you are in for at least 3 consecutive 5 year minimum sentences. Based on the way the citizenship interviews are setup. If I really wanted to risk 15 years in federal prison, I'll go and rob a bank. That is a better way to improve your standard of living than voting could ever be. Risk/reward.
Well, to make a bad analogy. If you kill a man, thats bad. If you torture, mutilate, killl and eat what remains of a man afterwards, its indeed worse. But if you kill millions of people, that in fact is worse than anything you could have possibly done to a single man.
And thus USA is the biggest hypocrite around. Not because of the measure of each individual act, but because the scale on which it happens.
You might be joking, but seriously, there are about 5 universities in the world that are a step above the MIT/Stanford/Berkley holy trinity.
This survey must be only talking about companies above certain size. Our Sillicon Valley startup has about 50 employees and the average engineering salaries are north of $150,000. Large companies like Google actually don't have to pay that much, because the hours are more reasonable. I know there are other companies too that pay more than Google in the area.
With the frequency of those news, if every 10th ends up in the disaster predicted, we are severely fucked.
US will fingerprint and photograph every single person crossing its borders. Either all the travel is done by a small group of people, or more likely their database is much, much larger than UAE. Definitely the facial recognition records, but very likely also on the fingerprints.
It's such stupidity and grievous censorship of thoughts and ideas that tipped the balance in favour of staying in Germany rather than moving back to the UK.
Germany has anti-free speech laws as well. Try to say anything positive about the nazis, hitler or deny holocaust and to the jail you go. Any "hate speech" and in the jail you go. If the free-speech is at issue, I would not stay in Germany
