comment How to recognize a good programmer?
@Benubird my point was that interpersonal skills can be more important that raw programming talent, especially when it comes to working in a team. I'm not advocating hiring people who cannot do their job. It's not worth hiring a "rockstar" programmer if they're not going to work well in your team. It's not worth the friction and hassle.

comment What is the Best Way to Incentivize a Team of Developers?
+1 for keep your promises. I used to have a boss that would make big promises and then decide not to follow through with them even though we met the conditions he had set out. Needless to say, I left that job and found a new one.

I see your point, but in this context "Programming" is just about coding otherwise I'd have used the term "Software Developer". The terms "Programmer" and "Software Developer" are not synonymous.

comment Ternary operator considered harmful?
+1 bravo for the great explanation! Developers don't tend to realise that some things are judgement calls, they want everything to be black and white. It drives me nuts. I've encountered to many people of the opinion "X is evil, lets never use it.". I prefer "X is great if you use it for what it's good at".

We've got some people in this camp in my workplace. It's funny when they try to play the performance card and demonstrate just how out of date their knowledge is
