comment Why do programmers still use mailing lists?
+1. I've always wondered this as well. Being a new graduate, I find it much easier to communicate using forums rather than mailing lists. I suppose the older crowd is more comfortable using what they are used to?

comment When is Java a good choice for web development?
You can get this stuff from scripting languages as well - look at Python and SQLAlchemy. Even Rails uses an ORM (ActiveRecord) and has good security.

comment How to keep a team well-trained?
I second the book club. I wouldn't be even close to a good developer if I didn't read the books I have on programming and software development. Books let you see how the experts do it, so you yourself can become one.

Art of Unit Testing is a great read for learning about mocks and stubs.

comment Are programmers who read programming-related books still rare?
I disagree. I've been learning agile practices lately and didn't have a clue about how to use those practices until I read books about Test Driven Development and Continuous Integration from some of the "Kent Beck Signature Books".
