comment What would you do if a senior level programmer stole your code?
+1 One note though: lead != senior. Part of a lead's job is to delegate some tasks to the team. That said, stealing credit for the actual work is not.

comment Why does a computer science degree matter to a professional programmer?
@justin Two important points I'm trying to make: First, in most work environments one is paid to work, not learn. (One may even find themselves working as a trainee with no guidance, let alone training.) Second, just because someone has a great deal of knowledge or experience doesn't mean that they're good at teaching/mentoring. To add to these points: the reason we're saying that a CS degree is quite helpful is that it should be broader than the experience one gets working with a relatively narrow set of problems for any one company and it provides a better foundation for that learning.

comment Why does a computer science degree matter to a professional programmer?
@justin I'm not quite sure what you're trying to say. How many programmers work in a lab, let alone with qualified mentors?

@bit Agreed. Yes, my answer is rather glib. It was intended to be that way for a reason.

Simon, it sounds to me like your mind is made up and you don't want to be confused with the facts.

comment Content of Project Wiki
@max That depends on your needs and limitations of the wiki (e.g. limits on the number of pages). The goal should be utility. You may be able to provide both comprehensive information and summary information. For example, a list of the functions could provide summaries for each function and link to more detailed documentation for each function. I would also keep in mind to avoid duplication as much as possible, since changes would need to be made in more than one location. The wiki may allow you to inline a section of one page in another, to help with this.
