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

I would say engineering. Although there is a certain art or craft to creating great software, the majority of what I work with are all low level systems API's which require you to understand the underlying architecture (kernel).

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

I'd like to discuss strategies for parallelism and concurrency. This seems like a topic that will only get more important as time goes on. Plus, there are so many different and well meaning approaches.

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

Asynchronous software has enjoyed quite a bit of popularity recently (although you'll find C programmers have been doing this for years). I also think the next gen of systems level languages is very interesting and exciting: Go, Rust, D, and to some extent Erlang. (Basically languages with strong concurrency support from the get-go)

Introduction

A green software engineer interested in networking and server software. I usually work in systems level languages (C & C++), but like to dabble in Node.js. I've also taken a real liking to D and Rust if anyone is working with either.
