comment What are the best practices regarding unsigned ints?
If you are working with data extracted from an SAP system, I strongly recommend BIGINT for ID fields (like CustomerNumber, ArticleNumber etc). As long as nobody uses alphanumeric strings as IDs, that is... sigh

comment Is it a bad idea to list every function/method argument on a new line and why?
Hm... with that approach, how could we ever introduce a new best practice (or, gramatically correct: a better practice)?

comment Do we need a non-disclosure agreement (NDA)?
I'm confused - usually it's the client who wants to protect his intellectual property by asking you to sign an NDA. Do you have IP that you don't want your client to share with others?

'If you work in a proper MVC environment (...)' - That is a rather daring assumption, isn't it? ;-)

comment How important is a good coding style for the decision to hire a programmer?
@S.Lott: Have you had a look at the example WarrenFaith gives in his question? That (lack of) coding style does matter, IMO.

comment How important is a good coding style for the decision to hire a programmer?
Coding style (and quibbling over coding style) is a complete waste of time. - I agree 100% on the second point, and about 40% on the first. Coding style does matter - if there is no style in your coding at all. If there is, it doesn't matter that much how it looks.

@S.Lott: Which is it? - Well, both of course. Bad coding style is a bad habit, most people can learn to shed it. It's when they can't (or won't) learn that you have a problem.
