Comment: Invariably bad code in my case (Score 1) 1067 1067

In my case at least, if there is a div0 in there somewhere then it's invariably a mistake that I need to correct. I'd prefer that the compiler or SDK barf on it or warn me. Philosophically, I suppose I'd prefer that the production code barf as well instead of managing to zoom past some bad logic.

Comment: Re:Forget the GPA (Score 1) 125 125

I second this. In fact, I'd not expect somebody with 15 years experience to list their GPA in their resume. I rarely see GPA on resume except for interns and first-job applicants. Relevant real-world experience is best. Security certs might be worthwhile I don't know. Never looked into them. Relevant certs won't hurt. I'd steer clear of any for-profit IT type college for the usual reasons.
