comment Why is verbosity bad for a programming language?
This answer is about complexity while the question is about verbosity. A fair example would be x++; vs rowCount++;

comment Will a computer science college degree ever hurt my employability?
Agreed, and I would add that while there are examples of self-taught programmers without CS degrees, there are far fewer with no degree whatsoever.

comment Can a fresher from a college write design patterns under “area of interests ” in resume?
@ point 1 - your resume should not be an essay on design principles. It should be about you and how you have used or take an interest in design principles.

comment Doing a passive job search while employed, dealing with the barrage of messages from untargeted Recruiters, HR people?
@P.Brian.Mackey I've actually had some experiences to the contrary, especially after you've interviewed. If the recruiter knows the client likes the candidate they smell blood and probably go for a higher commission. If there's a budget involved you can guess where that extra commission is coming from.

comment What are the main things a programmer expects from the senior programmer?
great answer, I would add to this give them freedom. Nothing worse than being micromanaged or having to ask permission for every little detail.
