F all of you.

the anti-Trump or how to hire programmers

a load of bollocks?

"When one of job candidates was about to withdraw from the project because the BF Game had crashed her computer, Brooke gave her a computer to replace it so that she would stay in."

anything wrong with that picture?

Interesting.

Nonetheless a few things come to mind:

-So the guy made a game. Great. Reimplement it in countless turing complete languages - one better suited to the market skill levels, not to mention supporting tools and libraries - and release. Awesome! I mean what sort of insane fanatic is going to individually train developers to an obscure, barely used and barely supported language just because they're fanatical?

-Being a l33t APL programmer basically ensures you some of the most boring computer jobs available, working on batch processing apps in the backrooms of insurance companies. Well, that's until they all outsource it all to external vendors who have implemented their solutions in Java/.NET/C++/Whatever.
