comment What is a reasonable and secure password requirement for user registration?
This is very clever. Use a spaced evey day phrase... Clever. Although I'll stick with my system of a common strong password with added number and letter depending on the service I'm logging in. Only I know how to form those and it's always the same but the resulting password is very likely different (not always different though but I don't care much about those rare duplicates).

@Qwerky: What? You live in a window-less or non-transparent windows house? I've never seen one before. Can you make a photo of it and send us a link? :) Seriously...

comment Would you put your stackoverflow profile link on your CV / Resume?
@Nick: You're right. But if you're somewhere at the top, you have the right to brag about it, don't you? Or if you think that your answers may provide valuable insight into your skills, then I welcome that. It's the same with linking to a blog where one talks about their work. Recruiters aren't interested in it, but potential employers may be. It gives a nice overview of your work if your blog is of course valuable.

comment Are questions about the Singleton pattern a good way to evaluate a job applicant?
I agree. I have been a developer for about 20 years and have used many different patterns, but I don't know their names. Hell I've even written my own Javascript MVC lib before it became mainstream! If I read about them I know immediately where and when I used some pattern, but didn't really know the name of it. Good developers know how to do stuff not to name them correctly. Singleton pattern is so common (as are Factory, Builder, etc) that everyone knows what they are.

@Nick. Well John Skeet doesn't really need a CV now does he? He'd probably get enough job offers just by announcing job switching in a blog post. I'm sure there would be several top notch companies pulling for his head.

comment Would you put your stackoverflow profile link on your CV / Resume?
@Nick: True... And not just that! The more problematic thing is that Stackoverflow participation may be fine when your CV gets to the employer so it will be screened by a developer (hopefully). But on the contrary Stackoverflow participation has no value whatsoever with recruitment agents because they're most likely not developers.

comment Why did Git get so much hype? …while others don't?
You are possibly right about Linus Torvalds being the sole reason for its popularity...

comment How to convince my boss that quality is a good thing to have in code?
I suppose what your boss understood was code over-engineering and not code quality. He's right about the former. You shouldn't think too much of future extensibility and possible changes. But code quality of existing functionality should be strongly present.

comment When do you think of efficiency? Before/During/After actually coding?
+1: It's also much more likely you're going to change code in terms of maintenance (process/requirements change or refactoring) than solving performance bottlenecks. So it makes sense that readability is first. Never thought of it this way, but you made me think of it.
