General Development "I've been programming professionally for about 3 years at this point, and I've noticed some interesting patterns in other programmers I've worked with. One of the key differentiators among programmers is motivation. I'm not referring to an individual's passion to simply be successful in their career, but rather the type of work they want to pursue. The thing they want to do with computers every day, the types of problems they are interested in solving."

Yes, you would get a big smile from me for writing such code. But still, it contains the same bug as my example and I'd ask you about that.

Sadism? No at all. By that I mean we weren't making fun of the individual, we were just laughing at the funny code he wrote. We never even care whether an applicant is normal looking or not, or whether he walks on his two feet or rolls in a wheelchair.
