Said nobody ever.

5:26 AM
 
I have not kept up with .NET, what's the preferred method of writing desktop apps now?
 
6:17 AM
@tylerl well of course,.... it stopped being called metro ages ago :)
 
@RоryMcCune Yeah, but Modern UI sounds stupid. :)
 
@TerryChia well yeah. Marion has a T-Shirt with "I call it Metro" on it
 
Its universal apps now ;p
(Yes, they changed the name again)
 
@JourneymanGeek Wait what? That sounds even dumber.
 
And eh, found an entry level security job listed at NCS
I didn't realise those existed ;p
 
6:22 AM
@TerryChia actually it's really cool, you should be able to write one app and have it work on phones tablets desktops servers and eventually X-Boxen
 
@JourneymanGeek That wouldn't be a physical security position by any chance? ;)
 
(though some aspects of their application form make me weep, but shhh)
Fits what I studied quite well, even if its not as hands on as I'd like ;p
 
@JourneymanGeek FWIW, some of the consultants I have spoken to from NCS are really !@#$%^ clueless.
 
@TerryChia: perfect?
 
@RоryMcCune squints
I distrust any promises of write once run everywhere.
 
6:25 AM
My brother was like "Apply for desktop support, it seems easy"
Which I also did
 
@TerryChia true true, but in theory if anyone can do it, it should be MS for their own kit
 
@RоryMcCune The main issue is that UX cannot be the same across all those form factors. Business logic itself is already very easy to get portable.
 
@TerryChia: Its probably the only thing that could save windows phone, so they're probably doing it right ;p
Also, The UI of many names is probably meant to be phone/tablet first
it sucks on as a desktop UI
 
@JourneymanGeek Meh, those type of places don't usually offer a good experience imo. Probably not too bad for a first job but I wouldn't want to stay long.
 
@TerryChia: essentially yeah, that's what it is.
 
6:29 AM
@JourneymanGeek If you want a security related position try the big 4?
 
@TerryChia: Big 4?
Oh, accounting firms?
 
@JourneymanGeek EY, pwc etc.
 
Yeah, actually that's a good idea
I have no clue how to go about this ;p
 
@LucasKauffman can probably point you at someone at EY SG.
Is it just me or is ctrl-A broken in SE chat?
 
What's ctrl - A supposed to do?
 
6:33 AM
Hmm nvm, opening it in a new tab fixed it. Probably some browser stupidity.
 
ahh
I just tend to tripleclick
 
@JourneymanGeek e-cop.net/careers-opportunities.html This company is pretty good for security jobs as well.
 
I'll take a look.
rofl.
GOT A song of ice and fire reference ;p
 
@JourneymanGeek Heh. I actually didn't notice that.
 
@TerryChia: Detail oriented ;p
Also, I have a pretty scary memory for stuff like that.
 
 
2 hours later…
8:25 AM
@TerryChia EY Singapore is recruiting I think
not sure though
 
@JourneymanGeek ^
 
WIGGLE WIGGLE WIGGLE
