comment When do you know it's time to move on from your current job?
@Chad You are right about not burning any bridges. However, when I used the word "confront" I meant "have a constructive talk with your boss about what you feel it is that makes you consider leaving". The chances that you can make even a dent in the way this company works is very slim to none.

Confront the boss you say? If you have made your mind up that you are leaving, confront your boss just to see what happens. I'm sure the experience will confirm that moving on is indeed the right decision.

comment Is possible to write too many asserts?
I must admit that this is a question that has crossed my mind now and again. Interested to hear others' opinions on this.

How difficult is it really to write database queries?

You can cite me as a reference if you want.

comment How to run developer team meetings?
You say these meetings are boring and not particularly useful. Then why are you having them?

comment What's the most absurd myth about programming issues?
Depends on what you mean by "manager". The project lead usually knows the code pretty well. Just one level higher and all knowledge about the details of the source code go out the door.

To me every copier looks like a nail and I'm the hammer.

When you say no they think you're simply a difficult person to work with.

comment What's the most absurd myth about programming issues?
I've worked for the type of manager who thought the programming bit was the easy part of the job. And no, he didn't have any programming experience himself.

comment Why do programming books have such wacky cover art?
Some of these questions... It's just marketing, sir. What else?

comment Graduate expectations versus reality
I love programming. I hate the reality of how software is being developed in the "real" world. What you describe is a fairly accurate account of the state of affairs in the software industry.

comment Daily standups- yea or nay?
That talk about a 50-person team doing a daily standup in 10 minutes is the stuff myths are made off. Do the math and get real! That is 12 seconds per person. Throw that book in the dustbin, where it belongs!

comment Daily standups- yea or nay?
Yes, people who are in charge of a project love 'em, these daily meetings. I empathise, really. Just know that most other people in that little circle feel like life is slowly being sucked out of them as time in that fucking meeting drags on. If I decide to go looking for another job sometime in the future and I hear any talk of daily stand-up meetings, I will thank the people in the interview for their time and walk out.

comment What should every programmer know about programming?
This sort of question really annoys me. It can only spring from the mind of someone who sees the world in terms of black & white. Not every programmer has the same job and if it is the smallest common denominator that you are looking for, the answers below show that you just end up with a list of pet peeves.
