comment How many developers actually have private offices?
@JarrodRoberson: Re Montessori: This great for developing social skill but it breaks down for tests since the constant background noise interferes with concentration - much the same as cubicle farms.

comment How many developers actually have private offices?
@Jarrod: Anything is toxic, even water (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_intoxication). But not drinking any will kill you much faster. Creating panic and/or turning off your brain doesn't make life safer or longer.

comment How many developers actually have private offices?
@dreza: No one ever died from drinking soft drinks, so that can't be true. They don't dehydrate you, they just make sure your thirst doesn't go away (so you will drink too much). But it's always better to drink them than not drinking anything at all. Water or fruit juices (especially when mixed with water) would be better but most people can't be bothered so soft drinks are the next best thing.

comment How to test a program in an efficient way?
If someone else modifies a piece of code, they need to write the necessary tests, too. Asking me to write tests for an unknown, future developer doesn't make much sense. Also there is no way to avoid every bug/mistake. Relax. As long as most of the code is healthy, you will always have the time to fix unexpected problems and learn from them.

comment Good resources for language design
I strictly look at the problem from the consumer point of view. So I want to create grammars which are unlike C++/Perl where the reader has make guesses what some code does.

comment Users and roles: Where to put queryUsersWithRole()?
I tend to agree but that eventually turns UserManager into a god class of sorts because almost every object in my model has a relation to User.
