Certification which matters

Finally I found a certification which matters . If your code have this certification that means it executes on your machine and you are NOT responsible if it does not works on some other machine.Wicked , isn't ;-)
This new certification communicates to team members, testers, Business Analyst and project sponsors that not only did you compile the code before checking it into the version control system , but that you actually ran the application and exercised in some small way the feature(s) in question.

works on my machine, starburst works on my machine, stamp
But attaining such a prestigious, rigorous level of certification would be quite challenging. But luckily, Certification designer Joseph Cooney was gracious enough to provide us a outline.
Now I will write certified applications only ;-)

Quote !!

             Love will hurt you, but lack of it will kill you.

Wonder from where this come from  ;-)

Bruce is Guru

Computer programming is tremendous fun. Like music, it is a skill that derives from an unknown blend of innate talent and constant practice. Like drawing, it can be shaped toa variety of ends—commercial, artistic, and pure entertainment. Programmers have a well-deserved reputation for working long hours but are rarely credited with being driven by creative fevers. Programmers talk about software development on weekends, vacations, and over meals not because they lack imagination, but because their imagination reveals worlds that others cannot see.
—Bruce Eckel and Larry O’Brien

Today I read this quote by Bruce in a book(Practical Dojo Projects) . It brought back some very fond memories of my engineering days .
If I say Bruce Eckel is one person who taught me Object oriented programming I than it would not be a over-statement. It was his fantastic “Thinking in” series which made me passionate about software development . I use to carry around his book in whole campus of my engg. faculty and would recommend to each and everyone.
I and my friend ovais use to say read “bruce uncle” ki books , then only you will know what an object is .  
His writing style is very simple and can easily explain even complex topics. He just does not talk about the syntax of a language but the conceptual importance of that language semantic in a program. It is because of his books I feel suffocated if someone asks me to think in non-OOP way . it just don’t comes to me anymore .
Thanks bruce uncle !!
