5k (i assume gross salary before taxes) in singapore would be very less when you are earning more than 18L in india. I would say 7k-8k would be decent.

Agreed that C++ has been used in the world class products but when we compare the job market of c++ with Java, i would say the market of c++ is small. c++ is used by technical savvy companies where performance is considered to be god. where as Java is used by millions of companies in millions of products.

Hi Jagdev,

ATG DAF is one of cool frameworks which has many advance features(component oriented dev,dependency injection, data anywhere architecture) . working with it would definitely will give a nice learning. Search for ATG in Oracle's website for more information.

if you are a developer with 0-2 years of exp and if your passion is on building applications with great flexibility and design, i think you should go for it.

Honestly speaking it totally depends on what you want. growth is there in both technical as well as management areas. if your passion is on building great applications go for it and if you want to change people's ways of working, inspire them, manage time and resource efficiently and be a a great manager then get into project management. It all depends on what an individual wants!!!

I think that the mandatory courses provided by Oracle or any other courses available outside will be of any use. Architect skills come up with experience and by working for highly performance oriented, scalable and well designed applications. These kind of skills cannot be acquired overnight by taking courses.
Hello Ranchers,

I just saw an advt for a developer role in a product development company and below is an excerpt from the job requirement.

Strong foundation in algorithms and data structures required



I am working as java/j2ee developer from last 6yrs in one of the top MNC (Service based) and have good experience in designing and developing application using j2ee frameworks . I come from a non computer science education background (electrical engineering) and have no formal education in algorithms, data structures and computer science subjects.

Now i am interested in the job profile in the product dev company and would like to maximize my chances of getting a job by honing my skills in Algorithms and data structues.

Can any one help me out in letting me know the good books and articles on algorithms and data structures.

i guess Kaustubh is not looking for communties like IEEE and ACM. with the term "community" i guess he is referring to something which protects the rights of software engineers...something like minimum pay...fight against exploitation

Sometimes when the developer thinks a feature is done, the lead/managers feels otherwise. The manager has to be concerned with other things - maintainability, performance, extensibility, etc. I can't tell you how many times I've been told something was done when it wasn't.



Absolutely agree with Jeanne. even i have faced this. software development is not just making the functionality work but there is a lot to it. good documentation, scalabality, maintainability etc.

This post reminds me of an email from one of one of ex-manager where hibernate is mispelled as "hybernate". lol

spelling mistakes in an important document like resume is certainly not acceptable as it shows the attitude of carelessness.
But lets think of a person in managerial role who replies to around fifty to hundred of emails in a day as a part of his day to day activities...spelling/typing mistakes creep in such situation where people do not have time to check the content...

In fact i could recollect some situations where i have replied as "can be done" where i intended to reply as "cannot be done" due to hastiness and used to send the correct sentence highlighted when i notice the error.

Hi All,

i had an offer with Company XYZ in India around 2yrs back. I have accepted the offer and promised to join XYZ.
Unfortunately i did not join XYZ as i decided to stick with current company because of some personal reasons.

i am interesed in XYZ now and i want to apply and move to Company XYZ and have the below questions

1. when i apply in XYZ, will they consider me and show interest for interview (as i have accepted the offer and dint join earlier)??
2. if xyz calls me for interview now and ask for previous interview history with xyz, should i diclose about the previous offer and my inability to join earlier?
How can i convince the prospective employer that i am genuinely interested in joining the company now?/
3. Is this common with employers and will they ignore the previous inteview history?

Please help.

I know that brushing up the skills is the required thing. i am not relying on the standard interview questions but i wanted to know the depth of interview question so that i helps in interview. Sometimes it happens when you are asked to write a program for a complex program like some atm machine or chess, the idea might not click immediately in that specified time and you might answer from brain when you the leave interview room....sometimes it happens and it happened with same and this is the reason and i wanted some sample question. Hope this helps in understanding my purpose of the post.

Hi All,

As you might know that in any interview the common question would be "why looking for change?"

what should be appropriate answer to this?

Should be express the dissatisfaction that is faced at the current organisation? or should we just say all is fine in current organisation and i am looking for a better oppurtunity?

Please share your valuable opinions.

First thing you shud the skills set that is required for the requirement. this may be technical skills or management skills.
if you feel if you have the skills, discuss with your reporting manager and set your expectations clearly.
