comment FizzBuzz - really?
I never learned the modulus operator in any of my classes. If I hadn't do internships or spent time contributing to open source projects, I would never have learned it until I got into industry. Also, I was taught in one of my intro computer science classes that the ternary operator is bad coding practice because it's too confusing and difficult to read.

comment Worst coding standard you've ever had to follow?
Only public? No minum length or required punctuation at the end? Nothing run on every build to check it? Consider yourself lucky...

Yup... this means premature abstraction, too. If something is only going to have one implementation, don't make it an interface.

It's a lot more than saving typing. Automatic refactoring can help squash bugs, etc. Plus, if there's a long compile time, having Eclipse/ReSharper style error-as-you-type can save you a LOT of hassle. And reformatting to fit strict source analysis guidelines? I'd say thyat's a big win.

Ugh.... Visio. Every time I'm asked to "use Visio in your design document", I first sketch it out on paper, then spend the next two days fighting to get all the lines in Visio correct.
