comment How to motivate co-workers to write unit-tests?
Picture's worth 1000 words and all. Showing that it saves time is more convincing than saying This should save time.

comment Is programming too easy if compared to other fields?
Difficult programs don't necessarily have to be large. I remember seeing a project where a guy wrote a genetic algorithm to evaluate efficiency of keyboard layouts. It was only around 1000 lines of C code, but not something you could just google.

comment Should I use a code repository if I am the only one working on a project?
You're right about there not being a reason to not use one. Whether Git is easy or not is debatable.

Raymond Chen wrote about this recently. Pretty sure this is Windows specific, but still a relevant.

comment As a young developer, should I be worried about having to use “out-of-style” tech at work?
To be fair, he didn't knock Perl, he was just saying that's not the kind of work he wants to do in the future. So the fact that there are Perl jobs out there is secondary.

comment As a young developer, should I be worried about having to use “out-of-style” tech at work?
I'd say that the last sentence of your question answers your question. If you want to do systems programming, data visualization, etc you should be working towards those. Yes, there are some skills that are language independent (like algorithm and data structure design, math that computer science is based on) and you should definitely practice those. Just understand that this is a temporary phase and you will get out of it. Make a plan of how you will do so and stick with it. Just because someone needs to do this boring job, doesn't mean it should be you.
