I work as a PHP developer at Pentalog where we develop the largest dating site in Europe.

I thrive in challenging environments and am never afraid to get my hands dirty.

My passions include computer programming, psychology and poker.

comment Working in a company that does not comment their code at all?
If I were you, I would spam my coworkers (including and especially my boss) with the link to this question. They'll see your problem in a calm and reasonable way plus some really good answers as well. Also, I would update my CV and start looking for another job because frankly the bad practices and habbits of your current coworkers won't help you grow professionally. Also, your current job doesn't seem too fun anyway.

" it should not be considered normal practice to treat refactoring as an exercise independent of your daily implementation work". This says it all. +1

comment Scrum: Short VS long sprint
6 weeks seems a lot for a sprint, maybe too much. I think that, in most situations, if you go beyond 4 weeks with a sprint, you're probably doing it wrong...

comment What is your favorite whiteboard interview problem?
I had something like nr. #4 in my DB exam in college. The teacher warned us about that issue multiple times during classes. So what did he do ? He failed everyone who got it wrong at the exam. Needless to say I was among the 20 % who passed... Though I think he was a little unfair with the others...

comment Is it possible to reach absolute zero bug state for large scale software?
What about compilers ? I know they don't have 20-million-LOC, but they are big enough to be relevant to the discussion. I never hear about compiler bugs. Also, it makes sense to design them as "perfect" as possible because EVERYTHING else we write depends on them...

comment What skills are essential for professional programming that are not commonly taught in schools?
+1 for the testing part. At my university, they don't teach it either. I had 1 class (yes: one) where the teacher mentioned unit testing... for about 3 minutes. That's it.

+1 +1 +1 , one for each point. It's so stupid that they don't teach you these things... or at least TRY to teach you.

comment What to do if a team member delivers bad quality code?
Stop being afraid to hurt his precious feelings ! He's not your wife. You HAVE TO address this issue. It's part of your responsibility both as team leader and as SCRUM Master. Do it asap. And do it the right way. Not too harsh and not to soft.

Well, you could always put a higher estimate and then use the extra time browsing Programmers.SE :)
