I found StackOverflow just months ago. Impressed by how fast the responses and answers being posted, I started to return the favor to the community.

comment The Joel Test's equivalent for measuring a programmer
I agree that programmer competency matrix is a good one, but it's too detail. Is there anything simpler to pre-filter good developer? My plan is do this kind of test first (filter phase 1) and later on ask "programmer competency matrix".

There's no harm to learn 2-3 languages.

comment What language and topics should be covered when teaching non-CS college students how to program?
+1 agree with @RobertKoritnik. It's more practical for non computer science people to create web apps(with javascript) than creating desktop apps.

comment How can I get programmers to work together better on shared code with tests
Terminate the worst developer with the most lack of discipline. You should be clear that you won't tolerate breaks in build.

Agree with this. You should have a monitor that can tell you whether a build break / success.

comment I can't remember programming 5 mins after learning?
You suffer from Anterograde amnesia which is the loss of short-term memory, the loss or impairment of the ability to form new memories through memorization. Persons may find themselves constantly forgetting information, people or events after a few seconds or minutes, because the data does not transfer successfully from their conscious short-term memory into permanent long-term memory.

comment I'm a contract developer and I think I'm about to get screwed
Not really an answer, but maybe for your next project, please be sure to add in your contract : "any late of payment will result in penalty of xxx dollars..." For some people, money talks.

comment Is it legal to recreate/opensource a program that you previously coded for another company
Since there's a lot of Dashboard software around, publishing it as open source will give you more risks than what community will benefit. So, I feel that it's better for you not to publish it. Recreate is Okay.

comment Thoughts on Development using Virtual Machines
@sleske, agree with DB,email,etc but personal files are sometimes important. Losing the server means losing the whole team important files.

comment Thoughts on Development using Virtual Machines
I had almost similar idea years ago. The real different is that I am gonna to use the VM to speed up the "setup environment for development" process, so new developer doesn't need to setup his own dev environment. However, developer need to at least install the VM client in their own PC. Your idea is more ambitious.

If the server down, you will lose everything. Unless you replicate this server also...

comment Post-Project Meeting a Waste of Time?
agree with Marjan. Sometimes Project Manager does not really know what is good for their project. If you are a team lead / tech lead, just do a quick meeting, and do not bother to update the PM. Put the mandays as general overhead. Or you could just do a coffee/lunch session with the developer and do the meeting during that time.

comment Does writing a programming blog reduce your learning speed, compared to reading other people's blogs only?
read and forget. DO and not forget.
