comment Interview: Review another developer's code
Love the answer. One addition - keep an eye out for how this candidate's code differs from what similar code might be in your company. A big point will be seeing if the candidate can successfully make the transition to your group, so if you see things done differently, it isn't wrong, but the question becomes "why?" and "will change to a new way of doing things be trivial or difficult?"

comment Handling Coding Standards at Work (I'm not the boss)
I love the idea of starting among those who agree! I'd add to it that the easier you make it to find and follow standards, the more likely it is that people will do so - make sure that if you have IDE formatting tools, the setup instructions and any config files are easy to find and the install is documented well.

comment New Team Lead - How to deal with a resentful former peer
No... no! The next bullet is "create villainous lair", followed by "capture hero", and "explain devious plan to hero".
