comment Finding metrics for development time in different languages
@iveqy - Jay is correct - I just wanted relatively new developers with some other development experience but not Groovy or Java. "Strictly Microsoft" seemed a cheap and easy to find specification.

comment Organizing code in a 2 man team
Use github (or some other VCS). You'll be very very glad you did. See also git for personal (one-man) projects. Overkill? and Version control for independent developers. If git is a good choice for a team of 1, it'll be a good choice for a team of two.

comment Efficiently extracting data from pdf with a template system?
Print to an image then OCR? (That might be a joke. I've been in your shoes and I do not envy you). Try using someone else's tool (Acrobat?) to do the text extraction. It's messy.

Get the business to do a high level review of the existing app. Chances are that many of those forms & tables (most?) are not in use.

comment Wrap all external calls with flag to fight against recursion and double-entry?
Can you summarize the article? Links go bad all the time & "Link only" answers are not well liked here.

comment Rename PDF extracted Pages File from a Single Booklet PDF in correct sequence
It sounds like your original document was imposed into a 2-up double sided booklet & you're looking to "unimpose" that file to get the original back in original page order.

comment Best practices for geolocation
@heltonbiker GCD may be overkill. Just collect the user's lat/lon then search for all airports where airport.lat is within some delta of user.lat. Subfilter for airport.lon. If the delta is 30 miles or so, you won't find THAT many airports. (Of course, in Wyoming you'll need a bigger delta)
