comment OO Design related questions in technical interviews
That doesn't make it a silly question. On the contrary, it helps to discover whether a candidate is capable of clarifying vague requirements. That's an essential skill.

comment Are Java certifications important for an architect role?
@Thomas Owens: Fair enough. Specialist areas (like defense) sometimes require certification, but for the general software industry things like MCSE and SCP are (in my experience) not really an asset.

comment Hand over source code to customer
@Bold: No, I am not a lawyer. This is not legal advice. However, in many jurisdictions the general case is that the purchaser of bespoke software owns the entire output (source, compiled code, graphics/art etc) unless there is something specifically in the contract that says otherwise. The OP has not specified which country he/she is in so it is impossible to give specific advice. The OP asked for "common practice": I have stated what I have experienced in my time working for a company that does bespoke development.

comment Hand over source code to customer
@Bold: Generally, the person paying for bespoke software development owns the source code. No need for the hyperbole about owning his life.
