comment Best way to keep large amounts of data (no relational database needed)
@user111671 - Well, anything could theoretically be infinite, but it doesn't make sense to design for infinite. Can you give an orders of magnitude estimate of the number of comments you expect?

How large is "large amounts of data"? The number can affect the answer.

comment Is Convention Over Configuration “Knowledge in the World” or “Knowledge In Your Head”?
By convention, knowledge in your head is knowledge in the world, by configuration, knowledge in the world is knowledge in your head.

comment Best practice mapping an external id on my system
@Machado - In the worst case you are out of luck. If you need to find someone knowing only their social security number, and that number changed, then you can't find them. Unless there are other options available that didn't make it into your question or comments. It sounds like it's time to have the business consider that sometimes the ID will be lost, and decide how they want to deal with that.

comment The practical size limits of an AngularJS based application
@scphantm "Have any of you..." is a red flag that attracts both close votes and, often, poor answers. I think you have a good question in there, and agree it is more for Programmers than SO. But it ought to be phrased to ask for the solution, rather than for people's personal experience. It may not a huge difference (this question in particular would probably only be answered by someone with useful personal experience anyway), but it will likely help your question stay open (and possibly attract better answers).

comment The practical size limits of an AngularJS based application
I would suggest rewriting the question to not be a poll (which is off topic, and you have 2 close votes as primarily opinion based at present), but to ask a more answerable question. "Can Angular scale to a large project" (followed by basically the same question) would at least not be a poll, but people still might find it too opinion based.

comment What is meant by, “A user shouldn't decide whether it is an Admin or not. The Privileges or Security system should.”
Not that you asked, but the thing I would most be careful of in this case is an IsAdmin() method at all, wherever you put it. I would usually recommend having an "Admin" not be hard-coded, but just have a set of possible permissions and an "Admin" just happens to have the whole set. That way when you need to split up the Admin role later, things are much easier. And it cuts down on special case logic.

If my team has low skill, should I lower the skill of my code? programmers.stackexchange.com/questions/203469/… talks about closely related issues.

comment Old programmer disappeared. About to hire another programmer. How do I approach this?
Pocto, some of the opinions presented here are not universally accepted. For example, having the same development team forever does simplify many things, but (as you found out) you can't ensure that. So documentation and good code are needed so others can step in at a lower (but still significant) cost. The "spark of excitement hasn't burned out" sounds like pure agism to me. Managing software development is hard - distinguishing good programmers from bad will be hard, I'm afraid.
