comment How is a “Software Developer” different from a “Software Consultant”? What makes a consultant?
@Nick, This will tell you what you want: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_engineering. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_engineer

comment Are t-shirt estimates a good way to conduct initial estimates?
You would establish it based on common grounds. Each person is aware of the size of the project relative other projects they've done for the same 'client'. Maybe this model works best for internal IT shops that cater to one business always.

comment How do I take responsibility for my code when colleague makes unnecessary improvements without notice?
But if you're going to check in incomplete code... even thought you shouldn't.. it should probably have a comment.

@Stargazer712, More confusing than having incomplete code in the branch?

@Jesslyn, If he is doing it to you, chances are he is doing it to everyone. I doubt anyone is counting that against you. (If he isn't doing it to everyone, you might have a different problem)

comment Simple vs Complex (but performance efficient) solution - which one to choose and when?
@dasblinkenlight, the growth of the workset is no more orthogonal to the question than moore's law is. The point of bring the workset into the problem is that if a simple solution is under some performance pressure at the time of release, the performance will be insufficient in the very near future as the increasing workset demolishes any performance improvement achieved by improved hardware. While I am all for simple, reliable and maintainable software, releasing software that is already under performance pressure at release and expecting moore's law to even it out is a terrible philosophy.

As simple as possible, but not simpler; As fast as possible, but not faster; etc

Sorry, but in all my experience in this industry. "work sets" are increasing FAR faster than the speed of our hardware, which is consistently upgraded. Really, I would just remove the Moore's law point.

However, reversible encryption is nearly as bad as plaintext when storing passwords.
