comment What skills in game development are common in other software development areas?
I don't, unfortunately. I'm only a college student and don't have much experience. I can say that Pixar is always recruiting software engineers, but I imagine that would be a tough interview.

comment Are these company terms good for a programmer or should I move?
I was given terms similar to this in an offer that I didn't accept in the USA. These are unreasonable, but I don't know if they're unenforceable. It wouldn't stop a company from trying and I doubt the asker has the ability to fight them over it in court. That makes it enforceable by keeping people from being able to challenge it.

comment Earning extra cash as a programmer
Entrepreneurs do this quite a bit. Independent consulting and working extra hours, especially on the weekend, is not unheard of. As for the local technical support services, hours on the weekend and after normal work hours would actually be convenient for a number of customers.

comment Testing for Non Programmers
Unit testing is good for testing if parts of your program work with the given input. Little brothers are good for testing the program as a whole. This is basically a pre-acceptance test acceptance test. He wants his brother to go through what users would do when trying to complete tasks or find other ways to break the program that he didn't think of. The problem with writing unit tests yourself is that you don't always think of everything.

+1 for the more long term problem with adding people to a project.

comment Why aren't there automated translators from one programming language to another?
That actually increases the complexity of the second problem then. And that's assuming you have access to the source code to translate it. Either way, it's still rather infeasible.
