Derived from "ninja" and "engineering", ninjaneerning describes any activity in which the 'ninjaneer' solves a complicated technical problem quickly in a way that is inscrutable to all those around him.

The ninjaneer usually performs this task at the last possible minute and with the upmost abandon (or at least it looks that way to any observers).

Usage example:

Programmer1: "I'm getting still 150 unresolved externals at link time!"
Programmer2: "Try linking to the static c library, if that doesn't work I'll just have to ninjaneer it before deadline."
