When giants meet

A few months ago, Belgium celebrated the opening of two museums dedicated to the work of two of its most important, or at least most iconic, artists : René Magritte and Hergé.  And that proved a good opportunity for Focus Magazine’s Karl Meersman to bring the two together in one image that is at once a tribute and a subtly critical jab.

    I am signing in this blog post in its fullness. I had experiences in the past applying for ASP NET position where I was refused because I had a small flaw in my own implementation of C itoa function (converting between number systems without any help functions)

    I was really sad about it, but then after a while I have realized that if they treat candidates “as numbers” and not as people and give generic questions regardless of what you apply for, than they would probably treat me as a number once I would start to work for them.

    Life is to short for being a number :)

    Thanks for the great post!
