I was recently hired as a C++ guru and performance specialist at a fairly large software consultancy company (1000+ employees). This particular division turned out to be a special division. More on that later. They had some software, which was in dire need of some new set of eyes watching over the code. One should think software developers are quite ubiquitous at a place like that, and they are. However, being mainly a managed shop (C#, Java) the presence of C++ developers is simply stunning (</irony>).
