comment Would working for an “adult website” hurt my future employability?
Interestingly, in both cases, it sounds like you'd actually remember the person, even if it was for being in porn.

How much does this matter if Bob was an outstanding developer and teammate? Imagine if Bob was so-so, but worked on top-clearance military projects. Then he'd be "the guy who worked for the military". If you can excel in a project, you should consider it.

comment Is coupling with strings “looser” than with class methods?
Unless the point of this exercise is to improve the code using better OO principles. In that case, refactor away.

comment What should developers test before submitting their work to testers?
Arguably if the code doesn't compile into a usable executable, it's not ready for anyone to see, let alone QA/testers.

comment Why do organizations limit source code access to engineers?
@DavidThornley Good point, and I agree that it's a pretty weak security measure. However, I'm sure you could find people in software who insist this be done as a security measure, good idea or not.

comment Is it bad interview practice to have candidates write a linked-list implementation?
@AlextenBrink Interestingly, I think that means that linked list knowledge is even less important for C#. Why implement a data structure yourself (with possible bugs) when I can use a better structure built right into the language?

It's not confusing in practice. FizzBuzz is an even easier question and yet applicants routinely can't even begin to answer it. Same goes with linked lists. It's a mystery of the programming world.

comment What do I need to do, to get placed in any software company?
Actually being able to program in, you know, an actual programming language. That's generally a requirement.
