comment Does contributing to open source projects to boost a résumé make sense?
Why wouldn't you get an actual paid job instead and put that on your resume?

comment How much to each part?
Point 1 is often hidden / obfuscated. So if your skills are on coding and not on investigative work, what would you do?

comment What good reasons are there to capitalise SQL keywords?
................................................................................‌​....................you choose whether or not you want to remain a dinosaur. Capitalisation formatting is obsolete, it's as redundant as switching from notepad++ to notepad and manually typing Tab characters after hitting the Enter key, or as redundant as Hollywood videographers optimizing their movies for black-and-white screens because in their third-world location "sometimes syntax highlighting is not an option" and they are preparing for the future where their location will turn third-world to fourth-world.

comment What good reasons are there to capitalise SQL keywords?
@MirceaChirea, @ James,@ Aaronaught, My SQL logs are color formatted. Why is your log viewer displaying SQL statements as black-and-white? The question is simple...................................

@MattGiltaji, Experiments have been successful countless of times, except those weren't chimps. Those were humans.

@AdamZuckerman, When you talk about standards, a link/quote is mandatory. Something like "I don't have a reference for it but" just don't cut it.

comment Why is Web SQL database deprecated?
@oligofren, You're missing the point of my comment. I'm not talking about the overhead of one function calling another and viceversa. I'm saying when you use a db abstraction layer you are limiting yourself to a subset of SQL query patterns you can use without suffering from performance penalities. You can do no tuning because the library does it for you automatically and don't always get it correct. It's not going to be 1ms unless you store only 1 row of data.

comment Spurious wakeups explanation sounds like a bug that just isn't worth fixing, is that right?
Postel's law is why many bugs go uncaught for years because hey, even if your function returns the wrong output, the app still seems to work! Best invention ever.

comment Why is Web SQL database deprecated?
@oligofren, Speed and performance at the magnitude of 100 milliseconds is important to me. I can't use abstraction layers.

comment Why is Web SQL database deprecated?
@Josh, Sounds like the Standards-TM guys want another round of XHTML-vs-WhatWG battle. So without WebSQL now on FireFox, you are suggesting to use localStorage?

comment Why is Web SQL database deprecated?
@oligofren, If you are using more-than-just-brain-dead-simple SQL in web SQL, you can't exactly translate that to localStorage and etc.

comment Security issue about making my code public in GitHub
@MichaelBorgwardt, I'd wager that the majority of experienced programmers would disagree. So-called "more eyeballs = less vulnerable" isn't based on actual proper research. Heartbleed is not the first and will not be the last. Also see blog.codinghorror.com/given-enough-money-all-bugs-are-shallow

comment Are my negative internship experiences representative of the real world?
@JarrodRoberson, Doesn't "Software systems degenerate and rot because of maintenance, not because of the lack of it, A system that is in place for years with no code changes by definition meets all its requirements and goals and is a success" contradicts Jargon Files' definition: "degradation of a software program over time even if nothing has changed"?

comment How to convince my boss that quality is a good thing to have in code?
@GaretClaborn, The place is small (4 people?) so it's easy to win the battle. In many places, leaving is a better solution.
