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.

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.
