The world runs on bad software. Only few users care. They care for a useful product though.

comment Are design patterns generally a force for good or bad?
@Kramii: I see your point. To me "boilerplate code" is just every code i'd wish i didn't have to write. Code which is purely cost, not benefit.

comment How can I tell in an interview if a programmer is passionate about programming?
@Falcon: I have wife and kid and a demanding job. Still i find the time to code in my sparetime. I am not very productive, but i found you can get things done bit by bit. People are different, i for one would go nuts after 2 weeks of not coding anything fun.

comment How can I tell in an interview if a programmer is passionate about programming?
I agree with Keppla: especially ask for sparetime/Open Source projects. I can't imagine someone being enthusiastic about something and not having the urge to do this in his sparetime.

@Kramii: For example a "Function Object"/"Functor" in imperative programming languages is boilerplate code compared to functional languages, where functions are first class. You do not have to code anything there, it's supported in the language. Vice versa you have to use a "Design pattern" called "IO Monad" in Haskell to get sequential, imperative I/O, which you get for free in imperative languages. I recommend following the thread i've linked to.
