Would you describe the work you do more as engineering, craft, science, or art?

I'd go with "craft", which has elements of the other three. There's definitely room for individual expression (there really is more than one way to do it), but some of those ways have demonstrable benefits over others.

Do you have any suggestions for software topics you would like to discuss with this group?

The description seemed focused on web stuff, which is not my area of expertise. I don't have any specific suggesitions (after all, I've yet to see how a meeting goes), but I'd be most interested in general programming issues (e.g. algorithms, languages, software engineering) and OS development.

What do you see as the most exciting or interesting trend in software? Why?

Honestly, I'm jaded enough that I'd almost rather answer what I find most discouraging -- plus my job makes me work with lagging-edge tools. You tell me what exciting things are out there. :-)


I do Linux kernel development (and related activities) for Freescale (embedded chip maker).
