  People working with computers seem to have a lot of spare time

People working with computers are a group of people who spend much time on communicating with PCs, Handsets and other programmed hardware devices.

  Hacking Vs. Programming

What is the difference between Hacking and programming? One opinion I have heard expressed is that a hacker can put a lot of code together in a hurry but if a change is needed the code has to be completely rewritten. A programmer may take a little longer but if changes are needed they are more quickly and easily installed without the need for a complete rewrite. One source I heard attributed an observation like this to Maggie Johnson of Google. It rings true to me though. Hacking is usual...

  Do NOT use boolean variable as function parameters

We follow lots of coding styles and coding standards when we do programming, but we may frequently forget one. The forgotten one is that do not use boolean parameter as the function parameters. The reason is it would greatly reduce the readability of the code. Don't believe it? When you read the following code, what does this code mean? widget->repaint(false); Do not repaint? Or what does this mean? After looking at the document, we know that this parameter is whether ...
