After the initial excitement wore off, I feel that Scala is not as huge an improvement over Java as it's made out to be (especially since Java 8 introduced lambdas), and Scala has a few disadvantages: compilation often takes much longer and is less incremental, and some language features can actually lead to reduced code quality.

SOAP is never simple, rarely about objects, and doesn't provide access. It's not great as a protocol and even worse as an acronym. I debugged and maintained SOAP interfaces for dozens of large financial institutions and want to help the unfortunate souls who have not yet migrated to JSON. ;-)

I used Java for about 15 years and learned C++ in the last two years. It's interesting and refreshing to see how these languages that may seem similar at first sight (syntax, object-orientation, templates/generics, ...) are actually based on quite different philosophies / goals.

In many ways (syntax, hardware model), C is the root of almost all current languages. C is used everywhere, from low-level stuff like device drivers to rather high-level things like the Ruby interpreter.

Christopher was great as usual. He answered my XML/XSLT questions, explained things in an easy to understand way and helped me solve my issues. He even walked me through installing some software for my IDE. He's awesome!

Christopher's knowledge of XML, XPath and XSLT is impressive! Not only did he review my code and debug it, but he also provided thorough explanations on where I went wrong, which was very helpful. I also appreciated that he responded quickly to my initial request and any follow up questions. I would definitely work with him again!

This is the second time Christopher has helped me and he's just fantastic! I can totally relate to his teaching style and he's able to explain complex concepts in a really clear way. I really appreciate his thoroughness in answering my questions and his ability to teach different ways to approach the code. Christopher you ROCK!

Chris was fantastic! I had lost hope that I might find someone who could solve my problem (xml + xslt => html on Android). Until that is, when Chris reached out to me. He was also the only one not asking for money upfront. Rather, he first gave me some tips. He also sought to first understand the situation. During our first session, Chris spent time figuring out the problem. After a few minutes, he told me that he was confident that he could solve the problem, if we kept going. Indeed, Chris solved the problem much earlier than I had anticipated, and he was focused on getting to a solution; not dragging out the session. Chris is very professional and he is a fantastic mentor. I would recommended him to anyone.
