General Development InfoWorld has put together a 20-question test of your programming knowledge. Questions range from 'What is the best way to preserve type safety in assembly language?' to 'Why are race conditions a problem in modern software development?' and they touch on your knowledge of the history of programming languages, how best to develop easily maintainable and secure code, and your game plan for overcoming a lack of energy drinks, Jolt Cola, and Mountain Dew at the local supermarket - in other words, your commitment to programming as a way of life. Editor's Note: Think of it as your midnight distraction (*cough* Grad Students) rather than news, you might actually enjoy it ;).

So I'm a headline skimmer at 60 pts. Stupid trick questions.

Wait, that excuse is already taken.

Oh, here's one: I haven't had my first coffee yet. (But I'm having it right now).

So...what does it tell about the test if I got 75, and last time I've had (brief) encounter with programming was 5 years ago with some dead basic C? ;P

Why not a glass of Sunkist Orange instead? ;)
