I'm more of a C-minus, myself

Exactly as I saw it:

OkCupid is hiring. We're looking for both senior and junior C++ developers; pay to scale upward with experience. Applying is a highly competitive process — there's even a test you have to take — so only the best should apply.

if ((iq > 120) && (experience != 0)) {

sendResume (;

} else {



Now, where was I?

Well, the only thing I know about C++ is that it's not to be pronounced as Orwell might. And yet I could make sense of that code. Furthermore, I could qualify for the IQ side of that equation.

Experience, !so much.
