comment Which comments instantly ring alarm bells when a programmer says them?
+1 because I have had to utter that phrase before... In my defense, I did dig through tons of code to try to figure out why... However the depth and complexity of the .net framework bested me. I will agree that this will set off alarms because it normally means the developer did not look into the problem deep enough to fully understand it.

They use normally doesn't know what they "need". However they do know what they want. Sometimes they are the same thing. Other times they are not. A good developer can figure this out. :) If we (collective we) made what the user wanted, there would be millions of facebook clones.

comment Does your company have a written policy about contributing to open-source projects?
@mathepic, MS has many projects on codeplex that are open source. Some are even being actively worked on. My point is that MS is not the same company they were 10 years ago. To be fair they have a long ways to go...

@pavel - That doesn't make sense as they started codeplex and contribute to jquery. I would like to know where you got that from because it is counter intuitive.

comment Programming with Dyslexia
I am under the same assumption that it has something to do with how/where the brain processes code vs normal text.

comment What are the criteria for evaluating an ORM for.NET?
There is no best. There are a lot of options that have a set of pros and cons. Each bring something different to the table.

comment What hat should a programmer not wear?
Just be careful with this. Bosses tend to take advantage of those willing to do anything. Just make sure you are being compensated correctly.

comment Why should developers have private offices?
my assumption is private offices are rare. And right now, I work in a cube farm pushing 250+ IT folk (hardware/software).
