comment Is code reviewing good practice?
Supports a learning environment. It's as much for the viewers as it is the writers.

comment I'm doing 90% maintenance and 10% development, is this normal?
You should mention if you're at a software firm, or a company where software is supporting their main business. In both cases it's a mix, but in the latter case, the support burden is generally higher. It's also higher earlier in your career. That said, nobody can put you into the job you want better than you - if the pay and work sucks, learn what you can and go somewhere else. Life's too short, and you have marketable skills. If you were a comparative literature expert, I'd say suck it up.

comment Is there a better term than “smoothness” or “granularity” to describe this language feature?
I second Scalability. Flexibility gets the point across too. Granularity and Smoothness can mean other things.

comment Programming Language most relevant to the Financial sector?
Something to consider - the most important thing to land a job at a bank as a fresh grad is not the language on your resume. Banks train fairly well. Getting a summer Internship at the bank you want is the most important thing.
