comment What are common code review processes and what is considered bad?
@user1207047: You shouldn't accept an answer because you like one of the comments underneath as it goes against the standards and purpose of the site (I think I'm sensing a pattern here). There is upvote comment functionality for that.

comment Why was Tanenbaum wrong in the Tanenbaum-Torvalds debates?
This made me laugh, FTA: "To put this discussion into perspective, when it occurred in 1992, the 386 was the dominating chip... and many companies that are household names today--Netscape, Yahoo, Excite--simply did not exist." @Robz: You weren't even born when these debates took place!

comment Software Engineer VS “Harder” Jobs
You're right, Jeremy. Abstract thought is required... as is understanding similes. Clearly, Aaron is either missing the simile altogether or he is the UPS driver ;)

comment Do some programmers know some secrets that we others don't?
@Bobby: I've run into this type of coding myself. I've heard it described as a stupid use of cleverness.

comment Why should I care about micro performance and efficency?
@CodeInChaos: The answer doesn't claim otherwise. It speaks to the OP's question "Why I should care about micro performance and efficiency?" Pre-optimization issues were merely inferred by the other answerers.

comment Should I continue using procedural php code or move to a framework
CakePHP and symfony are fine frameworks with documentation that explains MVC and its benefits. It's not a bad way to cut your teeth on the pattern, either. It may not be how MVC was originally conceived but it's definitely how many are using it for the web today.
