comment Why not use the word bug instead of exception?
@ThePopMachine Because I like huge bounties for questions other people might find interesting. I'm reqrding my "popular" questions and answer as much a I can. I've had much help from the good and fun questions and answers. I'm also preparing a new question about error handling and error codes for this programmers..that is not specific how to write code but how to handle errors in a limited and hopefully standardized way for exmple for webapps that can return a limited number of error codes, how deafults are good and naming of code parts.

comment Are long compiles a thing of the past?
A recent large project took me 40 minutes to compile (40 000 source code files compiling with Maven). The workaround is to paralliize the compilation on many CPU cores.
