comment Should I prepare to compete with a company that doesn't hire me?
@Jon Purdy: Hmmm... with an NDA, I'd see a lawyer. (Actually, I'd see a lawyer either way, just in case, but definitely if you signed something.)

IANAL but without an NDA, they'd be on tenuous footing to sue.

comment Must strong developers carry the weight of the world on their shoulders?
Sounds similar to the Peter Principle.

comment Detect frameworks and/or CMS utilized on websites in Firefox
Frankly, a good CMS should strip out anything not needed for the final product. You might do better searching for a good CMS rather than trying to reverse-engineer what others are using.

comment How to have an improved relationship with recruiters?
@crosenblum Just include a (somewhat) rude, all-caps form letter to every blind e-mail you receive explaining what you expect from your relationship with them. If they don't get it the first time, you probably don't want to work with them anyway.

comment Database GUI Programming - .Net vs MS Access
@HK1 Not necessary to keep your mouth shut; just because I haven't seen it doesn't mean it's not common practice. However, it is good to see what others are doing with Access and SqlServer, so, ask any time.

comment Database GUI Programming - .Net vs MS Access
While you might be able to use MS Access as a SqlServer front-end (I've never seen it before), I can't imagine why you'd want to.

comment What's the best license for my website?
+1 for check with a lawyer. Any comment we make is pure speculation and could lead down the wrong path.

comment Do you use Mathematica during the software development process?
No. Never used it, never needed it. I imagine it would depend upon the type of development you're doing, though.

comment How do you convince management to throw away a prototype?
Don't show the kids a shiny toy and they won't be able to play with it. Seriously, make it uglier, or something, make them NOT want it but still show what you're trying to express.

comment Source code used when supplying this to customer
@Jeff O: I don't think @egil means to leave out portions of the code that are required to make it function (though I could be wrong). I think what's meant is, "How do I not give away everything I know so that they never need to consult with me again?" I don't see anything unethical about providing the customer everything they need but also allowing for at least the possibility of doing future business with them.

comment What do you do about content when someone asks you to build a website
@Jon If you're trying to make a one-size-fits-all for every customer you'll ever have, you're going to give yourself a headache (and have an overly-bloated platform) very quickly. Doing things this way is why a lot of web sites out there look very "cookie cutter". Nothing beats a site built exactly to your client's specs (and gathering specs is a large part of your job in building something for them).

comment Finding the time to program in your spare time?
Oh, absolutely. Just recognize that you've made your choice, whatever it may be. There's no such thing as "I don't have time for that." There're only choices to make.

comment Am I too young to be worrying about college right now?
On a side note, you're probably one of the more articulate 19 year olds I've read anything from in quite a while. Communication is a good portion of the battle and you're obviously well-read enough to be able to write effectively. Kudos.
