big guns: template4c++^reflection4(java+py)

Most complex libraries (or systems) in java require reflection to meet the inherent complexity;

Most complex libraries in c++ require template meta-programming.

But these are for different reasons… which I’m not confident to point out.

Most complex python systems require … reflection + import hacks? I feel python’s reflection (as with other scripting languages) is more powerful, less restricted. I feel reflection is at the core of some (most?) of the power features in python – import, polymorphism

depth: %%tech strength@@

Some top geeks I know are fast at reading code + logs. Few rely on documentation. I’m OK not the fastest.

Some top geeks in “sister” teams of my team are experts with instrumentation tools and techniques. I guess other top geeks seldom need a lot of instrumentation. I feel they lack the experience but make up for it in other skills.

Some top geeks keep gaining depth if they focus on one complex system. I might have potential here.

cvsignore troubleshoot`

gitignore  can be investigated. Git can tell you why a particular file is ignore. CVS doesn’t support that instrumentation.

If you need to confirm a file is explicitly ignored, then you can put a single “!” in ~/.cvsignore (as described in the official manual) to clear the ignore list.
