comment Dealing with engineers that frequently leave their jobs
I think it depends a bit on how you ask and the persons involved. I have had a few good post-interviews and some not so good. The chance of getting some useful info is worth it.

comment Why don't all companies buy developers the best hardware?
In a company I worked previously we had the same issue with tightfisted manager, it ended that people would buy privately parts and put them into their office machines. It was just not worth the effort to argue about it. ;-)

comment What is the best advice to give someone in this industry who resists change?
I've experienced the opposite too, some young punk programmer jumping on each new technology and then applying it to an existing project with the result of delaying it due to bugs in the new technology. A certain amount of resistance is healthy.

comment How well defined should a software product be before starting to code?
personally i find spending too much time writing class diagrams is a waste of time since the model and code with it changes anyway after you start.
