Actually everyone wants to work with me because I am an excellent mentor and teacher. In fact, I teach at Hofstra University. But I go crazy when someone asks a simple question like, "Will this code compile?" My answer is, why don't you compile it and find out!!! If they ask me, "I compiled this but it comes back with errors. Could you explain what these errors mean?" then I am more than happy to spend time explaining exactly what is wrong and how to correct the errors.
