comment How do you respond to “Tell me a little bit about yourself.” question in interviews?
I often ask a variant of this when I am the interviewer - tell me about your technical background. It usually ends up revealing a lot about how well the candidate can summarize, highlighting the relevant points and what he or she considers important enough to highlight.

comment How important are code formatting guidelines?
There can be multiple IDEs in the same team - E.g. Eclipse and IDEA for Java. It would take a little effort to setup code formatting in the form of config files - but it's worth it.
