36% is pretty high from my experience.

You are correct. That's because the article's author doesn't understand math. The actual percentage is 2.1% and 14%. Only 2.1% could correctly code both problems. Only 14% could solve the problems at all.

Reading comprehension fail. The 36% was the number that could write code that compiled at all. The percentage who could actually solve the problems was much lower (as you say).

I work at a company where 100% of everything before I got here was done by indian programmers. Needless to say everything they programmed was as shitty as the ganges river. Over the course of 6 months I cleaned up the entire project and turned it into an actually usable, sellable, product. I'm honestly super lazy but management thinks i'm the greatest programmer in the world because all they have to compare me to are the retarded indians before me. They let me get away with pretty much anything because they think im so invaluable and irreplaceable. I smoke weed at work pretty much every day and on "bring your daughter to work day" I brought my gf to work, told everyone she was my daughter, and then fucked her on my desk in the afternoon. I mean, they hired a bunch of programmers who litterally shit in the same river they drink from. What did they expect the end result to look like?

I believe this completely, the H1B engineers at my work are fucking con artists. They 'fix' reported bugs by lying and saying it's working as designed, or it's not reproducible despite tons of examples and screenshots, or they reject them for being a duplicate and link to some completely different bug, they will do anything they can in order to get out​ of fixing shit. The American engineers are the only ones that can understand and fix problems.

At the company I used to work at, the owner, being a money-grubbing s.o.b., hired five Indian programmers to write our new application. The program manager (white guy) was lazy and careless, and he didn't do his job of checking the results of each of the Indian people. Everything the Indians wrote was shit. The owner, not being a fundamentally honest person, refused to face the fact that he had fucked up by hiring these cheap-ass Indians who only wanted to get out of India and weren't concerned about actually producing usable code. This "new version" crap got started in 2002. By 2009, all the Indians were gone and just about all of what they wrote had to be laboriously fixed or just scraped and done over from scratch. It was an enormous waste of time, money and opportunity. We were one of the leaders of our market when the re-write started but the company's fortunes are going down the drain now. The owner thought he was a smart s.o.b. but it turns out he was dumb-ass of the first degree. Oh, and he hired an Indian as CFO and all this guy did was constantly badger the owner for raises.

I actually have a very low opinion of Indians now. The Hindoos who came into India thousands of years ago were white, and they established the first civilization in India. Since then, race-mixing has steadily lowered the Indian IQ and what we get are these semi-smart cunning liars who get their H-1B's and then pretend they can do computer work.

gf, not wife. We have a decent sized age gap to start with, but she's also very petite with little a-cup tits so basically people usually assume shes 12.

The 36% number is pushed by people who can't math worth a fuck. The actual number is 2.1%!

The dumb editor added 14% and 22% for the 36%. That's completely wrong. Only 2.1% could perform at the intersection of both problems. Only 14% could solve the problems at all.

My experience places it at around 0.05%. Comments from others I've worked with, at lower tiers, say that they see around 2% of Indians are worth a damn. So it seems as the technical complexity increases the odds of an Indian performing satisfactory decreases dramatically. Even for basic grunt work, the odds of success are fairly low.

Really underscores the idiocy of pure fraud of the H1B program.

14% wrote something compileable for both questions, 22% wrote something compileable for one but not the other. So adding them up to 36% is correct

Only if correct is for all forms of "correct." If you actually want correct, then 36% is not correct.

plagiarizing.

I use stack overflow examples to guide my code much of the time. I will always plagiarize or pay for a library if it saves me time, and the code is somewhat secure and designed to catch exceptions.

If I wrote everything from scratch I would never get anything done.

To be honest I always copy code I find from the Internet. However I improve it and remove all bugs. And I convert it to match my current framework I am building.

If you look at the actual study it's even worse.

Only 36% could write code any code that would compile at all, not taking into account whether it would run without crashing, was correct, or solved the problem.

This was of two simple toy problems given to them. 36% were able to write code that compiled for one or both. However only 14% were able to write compilable code for both toy problems.

But it's worse than that. Less than 5% could write correct code that actually solved the problem and didn't crash.

And most of those guys wrote code that, although correct, had terrible performance. Only 2% could write correct code that was reasonably efficient.

This wasn't some small study either. They tested 36,800 graduates of over 500 different colleges.

To be fair this is how most programmers work. Why do you think most programs are bloated bags of barely working shit?

But then again, most commercial software is written by Indians now... O_o

I recently 'had my position terminated' after 9 months as a senior dev. LAMP stack, mainly DevOps type of work, ranging from diagnosing server issues to debugging jquery to dealing with their proprietary feed system (php and MySQL). About 50 people work there, its in SoCal, and theyre pretty profitable.

There is a healthy mix of people. Asian, white, indian, hispanic. No blacks though.

There is this one shining example of diversity that recently came back from maternity leave after 13 months. Yes, thirteen. First day back I get to meet her, and she cant understand a single word I said. I politely exited the conversation and promptly forgot about her. In my mind, she was just a non-entity. Never interacting except with another indian, never contributing, never socializing.

Fast forward to 2 weeks ago. My position is terminated because 'its just not the right fit.' Not a performance reason. Just, I dont fit in as well as the non english speaking, 13 month maternity leave, non contributing indian.

Yeah, I sold my login info to a hacker site this week. Call it my severance package, fucks.
