What do you want to do?

There are three levels in which I would enjoy working:

  • Systems Developer
  • Software Developer
  • Web Developer

What is your favorite programming language?

This is a tough question, because there are different situations for different languages. Overall, I prefer C#. Developing in C# is much faster, and much easier to debug. However, there are times when I just want a quick script to rename files or something, for which a scripting language or even a batch file is superior.

What is your work style?

I consider myself a self-motivated developer. Sometimes I like to fully analyze a problem before coding it. Sometimes I find it easier to start coding to help understand a problem. I also love working in small teams, because I believe that is the best way to mature as a developer.

Every situation is different. I like to write modular code to save time on future projects which share similarities to previous ones.
