comment How to protect source code from remote developers?
Developers hate code, they really do. Especially if it's written by someone else. Codebase is a pile of crap that you have to work on during the day. It's not a candy store: nobody wants to take it home and do anything with it. I can't imagine developers stealing code, they are more likely to take few ideas and rewrite the whole thing from scratch for themselves if anything.

comment What are some good ways for an intermediate programmer to build skills?
There are certainly some advices out there, but don't forget that most programmers or even all programmers have problems with large projects. You might get better at it but an advanced big project is always gonna be advanced and big. It's not like superstar pgrogrammmers see 5-million LOC project and think "aha, I get it" instantly, I don't believe that at all. You should strive to get better, but don't think that you aren't doing well enough just because big projects stun you, they are supposed to.

comment Formatting code a bad thing when using a VCS?
Yeah.. But you know, sometimes it's so tempting to format that damn mess "while you're at it". Also, trying to separate cosmetic changes from functional changes can be a pain if you use VS and it formats something automatically. Oh, and nobody will say that you are doing some stupid formatting while you have Very Important Tasks to do by looking at commit history

comment How to apologize when you have broken the nightly build
I try really hard not to break server builds with my commits. But if one day I do and somebody tells me to apologize for it I'll probably just tell them to go to hell. It happens, it's not a tragedy unless the configuration of your build system is particularly moronic

comment Are design patterns really essential nowadays?
If applying a pattern means copying and pasting existing code then you are probably doing it wrong
