comment Why should I care about micro performance and efficency?
good points to consider for embedded systems, a field I work in myself. Even with that in mind my experience over the years is that misguided optimization is always a waste of time. Without tools to guide us we rarely find the problem areas

comment Why is software schedule estimation so hard?
The challenge of software estimation is that software is viewed as being infinitely malleable. It is merely typing after all, why does it take so long? It is also a function of where the cost is attributed. Developer salary is a sunk cost for software.

comment Why is it always “what language should I learn next” instead of “what project should I tackle next”?
Sadly to get past the HR screen you must provide the list of buzz words of the day. The HR screening process is a rather course filter that will leave many qualified candidates behind.

comment How to deal with non-licensed software
@Job yes, you are using their product. I understand MS is a company everybody can hate, at times for good reason. That doesn't give anyone a free pass to act less ethically.
