comment Refactoring into lots of methods - is this considered clean or not?
100 lines of code does not mean that the method or function is doing to much, it is an indicator. A pretty good indicator, but still not definitive.

@Catchops I think the downvotes might be because you haven't answered the question. At all.

comment PHP: brackets or no brackets with if/for/while/…?
I disagree. Use of the endif; and similar constructs are better for large amounts of HTML as they are clear as to what they signify.

comment PHP: brackets or no brackets with if/for/while/…?
This is not the same issue as Joel is covering. this is about {...} vs <if/while/etc.>:...end<if/while/etc.>; it is a PHP specific construct.

comment Is it common for developers to deal with extensive change control procedures?
@Karl: I used to work for a large financial services company, as a junior dev. I'm sorry to say I was the one who had to explain why changes had to be implemented on the form. The change request process was pointlessly lengthy, and was often short circuited for minor changes, making a mockery of the process.

comment Do you tend to write your own name or your company name in your code?
If you release code under an open source licence then you are asserting ownership of the code. This will solve the issue, if the code you have written is definitely owned by you and you choose a licence your employer can work with.

comment Do you tend to write your own name or your company name in your code?
@Connell: I'm afraid I can't answer those questions. I'm not a solicitor and I don't know how your employer works. At the end of my day I stop working on things for my employer. Any work I do at home is exclusive to me, and I've confirmed this with my employer, so long as it doesn't compete with their business.
