comment How do you deal with stealing?
+1 For an insightful comment! You have already lost in my opinion so join him. Open source projects always need talented qualified people and since you know the problem the solution is aiming to solve better than nearly anyone you are perfect for the job.

comment How do you deal with stealing?
@snorfus, The mistakes have been made and the damage is already done, I doubt there is any advice to give but step back, evaluate the situation and what just happened, and identify what was done wrong so that the same mistakes aren't made again in the future.

comment What are the three most important questions you should ask your team about your performance as their team leader?
+1 Good approach, but I always like to do the order of Start, Stop, Continue. The Stop feedback is essentially a criticism and is easier to swallow if it is in the middle.

comment Why use an OO approach instead of a giant “switch” statement?
Code should be written for PEOPLE not for machines, otherwise we would just do everything in assembly.

comment How to apologize when you have broken the nightly build
Breaking the nightly dev build is one thing but blowing away the production database is on a whole other level. If I ever did that I wish that grilling burgers was the worst of my punishment.

comment I no longer want to be a developer
@Job, I think the OP should know better than anyone how companies like the one he works for aim to turn the markets into casinos and investment firms as the House. Most people I know who have worked at trading software companies would sooner take their money to the blackjack table.

This can be like riding a bubble on the stock market. You want to try and milk the cow as long as you can but once they realize you are expendable then the bubble bursts. You want to try and get out before this happens.
