comment Preventing possible burnout in a junior dev, or perhaps I'm not doing enough?
Your last comments describe my predicament: it's generally bad policy to allow employees to work for free. We work for a massive international company, and whilst what he is doing is voluntary, I'm wondering whether I should warn him that such extra work is unlikely to reap personal rewards.

comment Preventing possible burnout in a junior dev, or perhaps I'm not doing enough?
I guess I'm looking for advice over this scenario. As a good software developer should I be doing this kind of extra curricular work, or is it best (in the long term) to let him know he doesn't need to put in all these extra hours to be successful?

comment Will a binary include methods that are not called in the source code?
Why would you not remove that method? All it does is pollute the class. This is what source control is for.

comment Throwing an exception for errors that can be fixed
Thanks @MarjanVenema, however I don't agree you don't want to have the exceptions in a release build. If this happens in release I want to know about it, with a message and a stacktrace. The performance aspect is irrelevant when your application is functioning incorrectly.

@MarjanVenema - Do you have an example of what you mean? Don't Asserts throw exceptions anyway? Or did you mean write unit tests around the code?

MD5 is broken, but the concept remains the same.
