comment Is software development a field suitable for people who have unconventional methods of solving problems?
+10, if I could. Before you ever go at an unorthodox approach, make darn sure you completely understand the orthodox one. Then make sure you can explain exactly why yours is better. I've been burned by many "creative" solutions that turned onto necessary complexity and piles of code smell.

comment My coworker created a 96 columns SQL table
I created a table like that once; it was for our senior design project in college. If only I could say that was the worst programming idea I've ever implemented...

comment What questions do you ask about a company before deciding to work there?
+1 Good point. Maybe a good question to ask would be, "Who will I be working with on a day-to-day basis?" It's probably not always possible, but if you can meet those people somewhere in the interview process it may help give you an idea.
