comment What is decoupling and what development areas can it apply to?
@jt0dd I'd have to agree. Just because you can explain something with a book, doesn't mean there isn't value in a more succinct answer. With programming literature, people often swamp you with details before giving a decent higher level overview. "What is OOP?" would be way too broad. But this is a reasonably specific topic IMO.

comment How do I prove or disprove “god” objects are wrong?
@honestduane Yeah, that set of expectations alone speaks volumes. Good for you on the GTFO.

comment More Powerful language for client-side web apps: JavaScript or C#?
Never tried it but I suspect "browser plug-in" and "UX quality" may have been too well established as an oxymoron before silverlight even hit the drawing board to be a success.

comment How do you balance between “do it right” and “do it ASAP” in your daily work?
I feel good about this answer but also I just found my first job where biz and dev aren't constantly at each other's throats and the impact is delightful. We just get things done. Not always as soon as we'd want to but we actually take the future into account and it shows both in the product and our ability to modify it as needs change. Inevitable Big Ball of Mud is a lie, IMO.

@Astyanax That's the beauty of scrum-style (I don't love pure scrum) retro. You can't keep ignoring things that keep coming up over and over and over and over and FFS really AGAIN?! over again.

comment Programmer-to-Programmer, what would you ask?
If I only got one question it would be, "What would you do differently if you could go back and do it again?"

comment Isn't MVC anti OOP?
@Doval I wasn't thinking data fed to an object's API when I said dependencies. I was thinking more of something that builds objects within from external user-defined classes. Once you start referencing stuff defined on the exterior, that has to travel with your class when you want to move it and you're no longer portable. If I were required to write code in a statically typed language my immediate instinct would be to only feed generic core language structures to object APIs or rely on interfaces to keep things generic between classes. Otherwise it might as well be funcs calling funcs.

comment Does anyone else feel Scrum isn't agile?
I don't hate everything about it but IMO, Scrum makes a lot more sense when you think of it as an industry.

comment Is obtrusive JavaScript ever ok?
Obtrusive Javascript: failing to keep your JS out of the HTML. Inline event handler attributes 'onclick="someJSMethod()" and script tags used for inline code rather than links to files.

comment How much HTML and CSS should server side developer know?
On the client-side, tables-as-layout or continuing to use floats exclusively for horizontal positioning in 2011 or 2014 are not a rejection of dogma. They are signs of somebody who has decided to put an expiration date on their career. A designer or exclusively ad/marketing/interactive-agency front end developer might be able to get away with that. If I saw that in somebody's recent work, I'd recommend against a hire anywhere I've worked where the end-product wasn't ultimately disposable.
