comment How can I write unit tests that simplify feature implementation?
“we have produced a bit of spaghetti code. I'm trying to learn how to use testing and other techniques to improve the code quality” — I know this is a bit tangential, but unit tests don’t do much on their own to prevent spaghetti code. If you write tests first then that forces you to design your code’s interface before you write its implementation, but its implementation (and even it interface) can still be utterly convoluted and impenetrable.

comment Is my mentor's concern for code quality excessive?
“for the first time feeling like I get close to being competent” — after my seventh time of feeling like that, I learned to distrust the sensation.

comment Why are people making tables with divs?
@Vilx-: what answers in particular are you talking about? I can’t see one that mentions a difference in layout performance in IE between using actual tables, and display:table. (Regarding the entire table needing to be loaded before it can be displayed, I don’t see how IE would be slower than any other browser at doing that.)

comment What are the pros (and cons) of using “Sign in with Twitter/Facebook” for a new website?
@PeterLeppert: they've heard of Google, Yahoo! and the BBC, but they're less likely to be aware that you can be a member of those things (and they definitely haven't heard of OpenID).
