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.

comment How important is a good coding style for the decision to hire a programmer?
@Job. Unless someone doesn't write C# code as if it was old Fortran (80 column fixed layout anyone?) then I still think that coding style can be asked to be obeyed. If someone is a great developer you can remind them of improving their style (or let them justify their style over ours). That's what code reviewing is for. Any code can be fast reformatted but at least naming conventions should be followed. But it is by no means a red flag for hire. Shouldn't be.

comment How important is a good coding style for the decision to hire a programmer?
@S.Lott: Formatting someone else's code is actually rather simple these days directly in the IDE. But what I find problematic with different coding style and development IDE settings is CVS integration because people may just open other people's files and use different indentation character or things like that. Comparing files with DIFF tool shows lots of changes which are in fact just false positives. And may be that files didn't change at all. Not to even think about merging two edited versions by developers with different style settings.

comment How important is a good coding style for the decision to hire a programmer?
@Job: Not necessarily because StyleCop allows adding additional rules. I know I've written two of them that enforced TABs over SPACEs which wasn't there in the first place. But the idea is that coding style can be forced which will make it much easier to have uniform code.
