comment What are the restrictions on derived works of EPL licensed software?
Thanks ihkwot. I was being slightly disingenuous about consulting a lawyer. I don't believe that the in-house lawyers I have access to really understand software sufficiently to give me a useful answer. I'd prefer to gain an understanding of the issues myself and then write these requirements explicitly into the contract.

comment What is the minimum subset of best/well-known practices in software development for a solo programmer?
Presuming you write useful check-in comments, it also gives you a great way of going back in time to answer the question "What was I thinking when I wrote this pile of junk?"

comment Will taking a year out reduce my employability
I'm hiring at the moment. Candidates who demonstrate that they really care about programming by doing it in their spare time definitely get bonus points. But they've got to be able to talk convincingly about what they've been doing to prove they've actually done it.
