comment How to find a job that is using the tools I like (and keeping the payroll at a high level)
I don't seek the perfect job, I just wish I can have more freedom on tools selection. I know I'm in the average area here: I have been able to select some minors OS frameworks and my own IDE on all my jobs. I know people that are forced to use every bloated tools provided by the company. I also know software shops where dev choices are respected ( like choosing its own OS/IDE (easy for a Java dev) or the source versionning system used by the team... The difficult part is that freedom is quite often not exposed in job offers...

Good advice, but it's a little bit extreme... I know that the kind of job that give you a little extra freedom are still around, but I just feel difficult to find them...

Yeah, that are valuables advices... Maybe there is too much randomness in it: while job environment is crappy pick another job.

Maybe they play golf with the top management from the other company ? Or maybe they have shares of the other company ?

Convincing the team is one thing, convincing the top management is another: Listen big boss, your HAL software collection is too crappy, now we will use this very cool and cheap product instead.

comment How to solve conflicts with another programmer
If this guy is an 'asshole', ignore him. It looks like that if you don't ignore him you'll get an ulcer... Apply your team leading to people that want to learn and progress.

comment Code maintenance: keeping a bad pattern when extending new code for being consistent, or not?
Yeah, but I'm too lazy to do boring stupid code :) I'll prefer work hard for 2 or 3 days to build something that will do this part for me !
