  8. About the employment situation in the city

    concerning social competence:   As a developer, you try over and over again until the result fits your expectations or the specs.   In real live, it doesn't work that way: If you ask a lady for a dance and she says no, this is it. People who try asking that question over and over again until the result fits their expectation are called stalkers.   Same applies when you're interested in a job and have an interview that goes pear shaped or want to rent a flat and the landlords says no.    You just can't rebot people and try again.    So, the mindset for being a decent person and for being a good programmer is diametral, and some people fail getting both right in the same life.
