I really, really hope I passed. flashcard.el is nice. Turns out I missed one handout (oops!) and some of those questions were really tricky...

- A complete, mature faith grows out of and depends on doctrine,

morals and worship, drawing from Sacred Scripture, tradition and human experience. Through commitment, we fully involve ourselves in our relationships to others. God's grace allows us to freely respond to His love, illumining our conscience, Creed and worship.

- Although we have the capacity to do wrong, we are under the moral

obligation to do the right thing. Conscience applies universal moral norms to particular situations and helps us discern what the right thing to do is.

- Sin is not merely a transgression of divine law. It corrupts our

spiritual life and cuts us off from God. It affects not only us but also the people around us. Forgiveness is not an erasure of our sins, but an act of love by God for us.

- The Creed is not a formula to be simply recited. It is a list of

beliefs that unite us as a community in our Christian life.

- There are no substitutes for the Sacraments as a way for us to

deepen our faith. This is how God chose to make Himself present to us and how He wants us to learn about Him. Sacraments also unite us with the rest of the Church.

- Human experience shapes our understanding of Sacred

Scripture. Sacred Scripture tells us much about human experience. Faith shows us "things exactly as they are."

OOPSLA 2001 Workshop Software Archeology: Understanding Large Systems
How do you come to grips with 1,000,000 lines of code right away?

Programmers are often given a large system they've not seen before, built by people they don't know, touched by many people since, documented sketchily if at all. They're told to improve it. Their task might be to fix a bug, add a feature, or complete a refactoring. They are under time pressure, so they need to minimize the total time spent learning and the time spent improving.

In this workshop, we will share techniques and approaches for understanding enough about a lot of code in not much time. We are concerned not just with speed, but also with confidence: how can you know you've made an improvement, not made the system worse?
