comment Safest way to use and store User's third party credentials
@RubberDuck - it's [relatively] trivial to read a program's memory and find actively-used data. You should always assume the machine you are running on is compromised - it's Security 101.

comment Is rotating developers on a project a good or bad idea?
@Aaronaught - true; however, exposure to all of a company's assets ("legacy" (which has so many definitions and uses, it's turned into a generic like "kleenex" for tissue) is just as important as whatever is "new") will make individuals better contributors. Rotating folks in and out every couple months is probably not helpful at all ... but rotating in general is a good idea

comment Why do most programming languages only support returning a single value from a function?
random question - does that make the function that solves a quadratic equation not "well-defined" because it returns a plus/minus value?

comment Is it a good idea to format the code in eclipse using auto format
I use the auto-formatting capacity of emacs all the time - there are potentials for collisions (eg with SC merging) .. but overall, standardizing your format is extremely helpful
