comment Web versus desktop development - is web development worse?
-1: This is a gross oversimplification. Different browsers matter, and JavaScript matters for a variety of reasons.

comment How to apologize when you have broken the nightly build
@Trufa: In case you missed it, the problem with the OP's company is that it's sufficiently difficult to make a build to warrant an apology. They're failing the 'Joel Test', and the OP should feel no shame for the accident of his/her workplace that is "It's difficult to make a build."

-1: So ridiculous. // The crux of your "controversial" opinion rests on the fact that the OP is caught up in minutiae or triviality. You don't know that! Take the question at face value.

@Rob P.: I can't imagine you would want to employ someone who, after voicing his opinion and being explained that A is better than B (even if he disagrees) he refuses to make the change. At that point, he really isn't 'working for you'.: I agree 100%. I gave you a -1 for the specified remarks. If you remove those remarks, I'll take back that -1 and agree that we're on the same page.

comment How do you tell if advice from a senior developer is bad?
-1: I have a boss, as far as I'm concerned my entire job is to make my boss happy. It's not to second guess decisions made outside of my pay-grade.: You'll never work for me. I don't hire 'Yes Men'. I want my direct reports to offer constructive criticism when I'm about to make a suboptimal decision. If I didn't value their opinion, I wouldn't have hired them in the first place.
