comment How important is positive feedback in code reviews?
I used to manage at a fast food place and we were told we should use 80% positive encouragement and 20% constructive criticism when talking with employees. People are more likely to take criticism better when you highlight things they did right along-side it.

comment Coming from a Windows keyboard background and still using a generic keyboard, how can I transition to Mac for development?
I read about the DoubleCommand feature on the web, decided to go ahead and try it out. If anything, I love having my home and end keys working. I find I use those keys too often in programming to have them removed.

comment What are the different considerations to make when determining persistent data format?
Thanks for the feedback. I've considered keeping track of the "version" number inside the data file, though never hearing it from someone with more experience than myself, struggled with whether it was acceptable or not (or if there were other ways of managing the issue).

comment What are the different considerations to make when determining persistent data format?
My experiences with databases is slim. Most of my work here lately has been with C# and I've been enjoying the features that LINQ-to-SQL provides even with MS-SQL CE, but every time I think about using it, usually it adds more complexity to the project than its worth. Would love to be able to work on something where its the "right" choice so-to-speak.
