We interrupt our series on compound assignment operators with a quick note to say check out my interview on .NET Rocks!
We have a long, rambling conversation about languages, tools, AI, you name it.
Thanks to Carl and Richard for the interview; I enjoyed it immensely.
(Incidentally, the reason at the beginning I said "And this is a very special pi day because... oh wait, no it isn't" is because mere moments before the interview a friend had sent me a calendar meeting request saying "this is a very special pi day, 3/14/15". Of course the calendar item was post-dated four years into the future. Apparently it was very important to her that I get this into my calendar well in advance. And so of course this completely bogus information was fresh in my brain, and popped out of my mouth before I thought about it. Clearly I should engage brain before mouth.)
Finally an explanation for that picture!
Sadly we won't be able to celebrate this in the UK as 31/4/15 isn't a real date. Curse you Localis(z)ation!
ISO standard PI day won't be until 3141-5-9
In Europe that pi date is going to have to be a couple of weeks later, on the 31st of April 2015 . . . ah cr@p!
I'm listening to you talking about "refactoring and extract method". I'm going to be a smart ass and tell you DON"T allow ANY ref's or out's.... period...
Thanks for a great blog!
