@Kai: Fair point: whatever the question, I need to pick my words carefully. Thanks for the feedback. Very much appreciated.

comment What makes a good interview question for a junior applicant?
@Kai: That's probably a better wording, indeed. To me list doesn't necessarily mean std::list. Actually, I often answer that the list of integers comes from a file where each number is on its own line. Now it might be a language thing but is that wrong to use the word list to mean a generic sequence of things ?

comment What makes a good interview question for a junior applicant?
@Kai: Those are example questions. The sorting may or may not be relevant. It is not because you don't see why it matters that it does not. Again the source matters: you may or may not be able to re-read the list should you need too, and it won't likely fit in memory so this is a real concern. The question is vague on purpose: it is expected that you ask for clarifications. Also, if you are not concerned about the possibility for the list to be empty (and the likelihood of a divide by zero risk that comes with it), that's a terrible thing.

comment Using macro as an abstraction layer
Your colleague probably thinks that somehow your version is slower. If it is, the time difference will probably unnoticeable and anyway, one can expect any decent compiler to inline the call completely where possible. Use the second method.

comment Is it a problem to have different styles of HTML coding within team?
You give an answer in your question : " I mean whenever we look at each other's code, we tend to put a good amount of time in understanding why the other one does that". So yes, it is surely a problem :)

comment Is having C++ header files without extension a good practice?
@SteveJessop: You are right. Actually, he claims that he follows Qt conventions, and I believe he does most of the time. But from time to time, it seems that someone (not necessarily him) adds a file and doesn't follow the convention anymore, resulting in a highly inconsistent layout.

comment Is having C++ header files without extension a good practice?
@ArjunShankar: It is someone from a different team (not even in the same building). We don't have document, but I am in charge of designing the build environment, but we have some history and I regularly have to make decisions about including or not other team's habits in the global environment.

@Justin: Neither do I. I have nothing against Qt. I even think it is an amazing library but some of their design choices really feels wrong to me.

comment What can one do when “lead by example” doesn't work?
@gbjaanb: Thanks for sharing your experiences. Obviously, too much change can bring as much trouble (if not more) that a lack of change. However, in my situation, the tools and code style haven't changed in 10 years. As in many things, I really think there is a good balance to find here.
