comment How do I demonstrate what I've learned outside of the workplace?
Really, they thought your stack wasn't impressive enough? What part of smart and gets things done do these companies not understand?

comment How do you feel about being asked to code during an interview?
@el fuser - I think not, in one instance I would have predicted this outcome simply from his answers - if you can't write 'hello world' in an interview you have far bigger problems than performance anxiety.

comment What is the reason most people have predetermined fear of programming & how should skilled make them fearless?
And as a techy, I find hard arts (like plumbing) to be far more difficult than programming.

comment How do you feel about being asked to code during an interview?
I have interviewed people who said they were a '10' in (insert language here). When I asked them to write 'hello world' in that language, they couldn't do it. (Any of it, not even the first few import/include lines, or a print statement, nothing)

comment How to inform a colleague of .NET and C# coding guidelines without offending him?
This comes up all the time - but what you have to do first is have standards. Then, follow them. Finally, enforce them.

comment “Overtime is part of the job” true but a bad attitude?
There are a dearth of managerial comments (and answers) here; most of what I see are employees saying what they do/have done/would do in this circumstance. Just for fun, can we get some managers to chime in (and tell us why they think 'salaried' means 'indentured')?
