comment What's the cheapest way to host hobby projects?
I got my internet blocked for a day doing this. So the OP needs to be aware of the repercussions of running a home server that is publicly accessible.

comment What actions should I not rely on the packaged functionality of my language for?
Kinda. Like if relying on PHP sanitizing functions is a pitfall, what other common actions should I do myself to ensure they're done correctly or more appropriately for my situation.

comment What actions should I not rely on the packaged functionality of my language for?
I guess I meant functions that come with the core library, not the "language" itself. Would it make more sense if I edited my question to say core libraries rather than language?

I think you may be right with the extensions comment. It looks like php has a cryptography extension. I'm assuming that's what he was talking about.

comment Should i expect real world questions from interviewing agency ?
Try Project Euler. Do them in Javascript to practice coding small tests. Also, it sounds like a lot of your focus is about Ajax. I doubt they would ask you to code anything like that (although I could be wrong, so it doesn't hurt to study it). I would think they would just ask you tests dealing with coding in Javascript.

comment Should i expect real world questions from interviewing agency ?
@KPO The tests will most likely be in the form of small "write a function that does this" sort of thing. But, again, I have had lengthy tests done at the interview and also tests that I was given a period of time to do from home and to return to them at a later time.

@Oded You're absolutely correct. By not asking you to code, that shows that they do not value talent.

comment Should i expect real world questions from interviewing agency ?
@KPO Now that part will depend. I had one where I was allowed to use php.net for looking up function definitions. But that was the large test I mentioned in my answer. For short tests, I would expect that they wouldn't give you resources. I wasn't given any for the fizzbuzz.

comment Should you keep a copy of all the code you write?
@MathewFoscarini I understand what you're saying, but I'm talking about the algorithms. That would be like saying the carpenter doesn't own the steps he takes to build the house

comment Should you keep a copy of all the code you write?
My major issue with this topic is... Does the company own every bit of the code? I understand I can't resell the code I wrote for another company verbatim. But am I allowed to keep my code around to reuse algorithms, even if that reuse is with another company/makes me profit?

comment Fiction that includes BASIC programs
moving Alex's answer to the comments: "Just found this post while searching for the same book - the underwater shark base thing. My mom bought it for me back in the day and I totally wrote the programs and everything. (And, yes, I am now a programmer. Way to go Mom!) I wish someone had answered this question. :("

comment Initialized variables vs named constants
Haha. My fault. I figured I would get something wrong with that statement. But hopefully everyone gets the gist of it.

comment Should the most recent date be named 'start' or 'end'?
@downvoter Can you explain the downvote so that maybe I can reconstruct my question if something wasn't right?

comment Should the most recent date be named 'start' or 'end'?
I completely agree with you, but I think my question was geared more towards the normal conventions and what would be intuitive. I was trying to make it easy for the developer so that they didn't have to go looking in documentation. To put it short, I didn't want to make it function(haystack, needle) when the known convention is function(needle, haystack).

comment Should the most recent date be named 'start' or 'end'?
With this in mind, what would be your solution to the question then? How do you convey this to other developers in your function's arguments?

comment Can someone who studied web easily switch to software
I did the same thing, but the thing you'll realize when you get out (at least I did) is that school doesn't really prepare you for the job, it prepares you for teaching yourself how to learn new aspects that will help you with your job.

comment How can I explain the usefulness of Inheritance?
+1 this is the example most of my teachers used and I really liked it. it made complete sense and gave a real world example on how to use inheritance.

comment How is Node.js different from other server-side frameworks?
@downvoter - why the downvote? except for the second paragragh (you can't really ask why start something when someone else has done it because you could always do it better), I find this question to be intriguing. I've often thought this myself.

comment Perks for new programmers
+1 again for whiteboards. my company finally got me one and it has been an awesome boost to productivity. The ability to easily jot down ideas without little scribbles all over a piece of paper is awesome!
