+1 This might just be the most insightful answer I have seen on a SE site yet.

comment What's so bad about creative coding?
@Jonas: Good one. But you really should not underestimate Analysis Paralysis. With all the "good advice" on methodologies, design patterns, etc. these days, it is really easy to get the impression that you should be planning, analyzing and designing for days and days on end before you even touch a single line of code. And that can easily become very counterproductive. The reality I believe is to understand what planning and designing up front can help you in the long run, and understand when to dive in to get some feeling with what you are working on, and to actually get something done.

Nothing is wrong with the way you work, you know what is important in the final outcome, and that is what really matters. It is just that you might have a hard time working with a large team that way, but you will probably adapt if that is the case. It really sounds like you are heading straight for Analysis Paralysis: sourcemaking.com/antipatterns/analysis-paralysis

Isn't this yet another question which really belongs on SO?

comment What is the point of a Gantt Chart, and will it help me?
How do you "threaten" someone with a Gantt chart? Did he want to smack you in the head with his chart?

comment Correct alignment when outcommenting code
What if the case is just temporary, like I need to comment out something because I am debugging a problem.

comment If you were the manager of a team of 25 developers, how would you motivate them?
Also, have very talented people design your framework for whatever product you are making. Having a well designed framework vastly improves the quality of what less-talented people produces.

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.

@Walter - Impressive.

comment Whats the greatest most impressive programing feat you ever witnessed?
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 What are your programming idiosyncrasies?
There is nothing worse getting code from other people that you are asked to look into, and then it is not even indented correctly.
