I was a computer science student in it for interest.

'Was' not because I am no longer interested, but because I am no longer a student in the strict sense of belonging to an institution.

comment Should I just slog it out or discuss with my PM?
It's just my feeling that if people don't do something, they are resistant to the idea. (related: see my reply to @DPD below)

You're right, I shouldn't second-guess what they will say or their reasons for doing things.

Indeed, I have to be tactful. Most of the existing code is written by the original developers (not here anymore), and the rest by the maintenance team.

comment Best Practices for Renaming, Refactoring, and Breaking Changes with Teams
Can't use Martin Fowler's (otherwise good) advice when you're refactoring code written by others. Also, I suppose the developer who deprecated the methods should remind his colleagues to use the new methods from time to time without being too annoying to speed up the transition. I'm under the impression that the deprecated methods in the Java class library will always exist for backward compatibility, but I may be wrong.

comment What non-programming books should a programmer read to help develop programming/thinking skills?
Sadly, I got this book 5-6 years ago and my bookmark is still somewhere in the middle of it.
