Amir Barak's Blog

 

What's to say? I write code, drink coffee, play with my kids and generally try to enjoy life as much as I can. Started programming with BASIC on my C64, moved on to Pascal, Cobol (who the heck remembers that thing?) and onwards to C, C++ and nowadays mostly C#.

You can check out my other blogs; here and here.

Shaming is never the right solution. Ever. It creates an atmosphere of, well, shame. Again, we 're 7 months down the line now and SHAMING HASN 'T WORKED. Maybe, I dunno, you should 've realized that shaming is a toxic reaction which BREEDS MORE TOXICITY. r n r nI don ...
