comment What hat should a programmer not wear?
And if you get the sysadmin hat, they may stick you with the facilities manager hat too which is to be avoided at all costs.

comment How should older programmers respond when interviewed
I'd be tempted to say, "My lawyer will be delighted that you asked that." (I wouldn't, but I also wouldn't accept a job at such aplace either unless I was destitute.) Utterly stupid to ask such a question and then give the guy a way to sue you if he doesn't get hired.

Actually I'm pretty sure it is an illegal question.

comment How do people manage to write and maintain extremely complex and hard to read code?
LOL, I worked with soemone like this, if there were several ways to do something (and there always are) he would invariably choose the most complicated, convoluted solution. I don't think he was even aware of that.

No programming time is not more expensive than hardware when you have thousands or milllion of users. Programmer time is NOT more important than user time, get this through your head as soon as possible.

comment When deciding on whether or not to work for a new company, what are your dealbreakers?
This is one of the most whiny, ridiculous things I've ever seen. Of course businesses need you to work specific hours, that is a normal expectation of ALL employees. It helps the business manage the business and prevents them from getting sued when they fire Joe for not doing his job because Sam works even fewer hours and didn't get fired. Grow up people, it's business not a fun factory.
