comment Does dealing with legacy code help one evolve as a programmer?
It would be great to find some code comments or project documentation in these situations. Otherwise that hack or weird way to implement a function will remain a mistery. That developer may not even be in the company anymore, so there's no way for you to ask him about it.

comment The Relative Cost Efficiency of (Acceptance) Test Driven Development
OK, this is a good idea to check out. The team which I'm part of switched to TDD a few months ago. While we did see an increase in code quality (less nr of bugs and better modularity), we also saw an increase in development time. These things are subjective, but I'm pretty sure we can generate some statistics based on the entries in our bugtracker, JIRA etc. Now I'm curious too about seeing such metrics :) .

Actually, the OP is talking about hashing methods that are intentionally made slow. For example, take a look at bcrypt: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bcrypt

comment Am I covered with GPL If I want to share open source code of project developed in my company?
Whatever answers you receive here, always keep in mind that trusting strangers on the Internet with legal advice can have serious consequences. The answers here are just a guideline, since the full context of your question is unknown. The best you can hope for from Programmers.SE is figuring out who to ask for help and if it's worth it. If this is something important for you, contact a lawyer and discuss it with him/her. Your company probably has some legal department that you can ask for help on this.

comment Can the version of Git vary between team members?
OK, I looked a bit at the changelog for a few of the versions, but the damn thing is too vast and long. However, I didn't find anything really significant, so you're probably right about the backwards-compatibility...

comment Unit Test - an Enigma?
Once you start writing software that is more than a few hundred lines long, you'll see the benefits of unit tests...

comment Is the development of CLI apps considered “backward”?
You're right, but keep in mind that for the masses of (stupid) computer users, GUIs will be the only thing they know and see... this is especially true if you consider the fact that the GUI is older than a lot of them...
