comment If you were the manager of a team of 25 developers, how would you motivate them?

25 people will mean cake twice a month, you will get a fat team when you project is over. :) Also, there's an above 50% chance of two people having birthday on the same day.

So, how well was the code documented? How good was the architecture and how well was that documented? Can somebody else relatively easily dive into the code-base and fix bugs? Having a hero-programmer that can produce a lot of code in a little time is not necessarily a good thing for a company.

comment Is the time spent customizing your dev machine environment worth it?
+1 for focus on enjoyment. My problems is that while I might enjoy spending a few hours hacking together a useful sed script for the project I am working on, I always feel a bit guilty about having spend a few hours not on the task that I was assigned to do.

comment Is it bad to use Unicode characters in variable names?
@DominicMcDonnell - It is not unreadable or unspeakable at all, read the math out loud and then the code. It actually reads out mostly the same.

comment Is it acceptable for projects to go over budget?
Double is leaves too small a margin. I always go by the rule of multiplying with pi.
