How is this a duplicate? This question is about becoming an expert programmer. The other question is details about launching a web site.

comment What are requirements for a successful SOA?
@NimChimpsky - I thought the same thing. If the requirements for the desktop client and the web client are different, wouldn't it make sense to have 2 services? They could share the same data, and even share common code.

comment Why did an interviewer ask me a question about people eating curry?

comment What recommendations can you give in managing a team of remote software engineers?

comment What recommendations can you give in managing a team of remote software engineers?
How are you communicating with them? Through email? That's not good. You should talk to them regularly on the (Skype) phone as well. By voice, not chat.

comment Applicability of the Joel Test to web development companies
I don't know if the company's website is representative of the work they do for clients. In most of the places I have worked at, the company website was neglected for long periods of time. It was the lowest priority project.

comment Single Responsibility Principle - How Can I Avoid Code Fragmentation?
Many programming issues are not simple enough to say there is only way of doing things. Usually there is some kind of trade off involved.
