I code because it is the single, greatest expression of creativity that I have ever found. Coding isn't just the ability to translate an idea into working software, it's the ability to focus creativity into reality.

Thanks, everyone. I've certainly seen a different perspective on this, thanks to your detailed answers and comments. There are several high-quality answers that talk about various angles of this issue. Rather than award a single question, I've up-voted my favorites.

comment What's the best place for a high school programmer to get his work noticed?
The feedback on these sites may also be direct, brutal, or maybe your projects will get ignored. The important thing to take the feedback for what it is, and make improvements. Make sure to think of the community as something that is there to help you and it will.

comment How do you handle regular latecomers at the stand-up meetings?
If someone is consistently late, why? Punishments for minor infractions of any kind wind up making you look like a stickler for the rules. What you need instead is for the culture to change, and for everyone on the team to care enough that they bring the others up around them. If that still doesn't work, you need to speak to the folks individually, and dig to the bottom of why they either don't show up on time, or don't care to show up on time, and deal with that issue instead. I.E. treat the problem, not the symptom.

comment quick prototyping in project design & development
Agreed. I'm too visual NOT to draw things on paper/whiteboard. I had a pen tablet for my computer for a couple of years, but felt it was weird since my hand wasn't literally drawing on the screen.

comment What to do about team member who threatens to leave all the time and is difficult to work with?
I agree with the unsustainable assessment. It's not reasonable, if nothing changes, to continue on this way. Definitely make an effort to see through the changes. However, like any relationship, if something doesn't change after repeated attempts, and that something is extremely important to you, then you have two choices: leave, having learned from the situation, or stay knowing that, based on past behavior, nothing will change.
