comment How to correct a junior, but encourage him to think for himself?
Great idea! I might also add that one of my mentors gave me some assigned readings (while I was on coop) that really helped to expand my mind. I have since read most of the pragmatic programmer (book) and every article on Joel's site.

I am not sure this is the best idea. Much better to let people find their own mistakes rather than publicly asking a group why their code isn't good.

comment Why would a company develop an atmosphere which discourage code comments?
one example of when when one liners should can be usefull is in loosely type languages (Like Actionscript 3). Suppose I have an Array of Selected Grocery items: var selected:Array = new Array() is much more readable if a comment is appended to the line: // Array of Type GroceryItems

comment How to improve my trade
@mcottle, accounting is a waste of time. It does not give you any direction as to what motivates people in business, how to make decisions or what the best course of action is. Economics is a much better use of time.

I have been using simply hired and it has been pretty useful. I have found basically all of the big employers in Ottawa like this. It is less useful for finding smaller companies.
