comment What is the relevance of resumes in the age of GitHub, Stack Exchange, Coursera, Udacity, blogs, etc.?
Some names are too common to Google. Providing a link on the resume can still be useful.

comment How much help should I give during technical interviews?
My team plays two roles: developing off-platform solutions and rescuing floundering projects. We don't all work on the same project at the same time, but it's rarely one-person to a project. From where I'm sitting it's the best team in the company because I enjoy my work and the companionship, but I can't honestly tell you if we outperform our individual capabilities.

You bosses approach would work well for rubbish collectors and the guys who hold the Stop/Go lollipops at road works. My boss's approach landed him me and several other excellent developers. The reason I asked the question is that his approach is slow and we end up not hiring developers who may have been great. (Besides, good programmers are garbage collectors.) ;)

comment How much help should I give during technical interviews?
Unless it doesn't work and then it's just sad, sad, sad for the rest of the interview. Personally, I think our first questions are terribly easy, but not all of our candidates seem to think so.

comment Are small amounts of functional programming understandable by non-FP people?
I usually bring up reduce as a counter-example to the you can always use a list comprehension argument, as it's relatively difficult to replace reduce with an inline generator or list comprehension.

@Torbjørn which power? The automatic documentation, or the introspection features?

comment Is Javascript a Functional Programming Language
+1 Great response. Because of the way programming education is structured, new coders seem to think the paradigms are exclusive and discrete, but they're not. Try to write OOP code that takes advantage of functional concepts when it makes sense to do so. Event-driven programming is a paradigm, but aspects of EDP influence certainly every gui and web program. Polymorphism, a core feature of OOP, is really generic programming. Naming these ideas helps us conceptualize good programming, but you shouldn't use one to the exclusion of others.

@SK-logic not trying to be flippant, but have you seen a formal definition of feature? Can you provide a link, because I'd like to read it.

I do not understand It also seems to execute in a neat line by line manner with the exception of functions, and it can be interpreted as such too which is nice. What does it mean?
