comment How could your company's learning/development department best serve you?
When would we actually eat? I like the idea, but I'd be too into taking notes, trying sample codes, googling stuff I didn't know that I wouldn't be able to put that precious piece of pizza in my mouth. my...precioussss...

2 and 3 assume too much vested interest in their jobs - a lot of guys don't want to spend their free time (ie lunch) working on work-related things, nor spend their worktime working on non-work things (open source projects). I personally would love to have both, but Im just a big programming weirdo...

I see two types of corporate training - one-offs that serve as "enrichment" to current skill set. The accuracy and quality of these courses is probably enhanced well by feedback/suggestion mechs. Second type - courses that are part of a larger goal or career path - require feedback but also better guidance and a firmer hand to both ensure content relevancy and keep workers on track and moving forward on these larger study arcs.

comment Which approach to follow for developing applications targeting multiple platforms?
@Gulshan Sorry, obvious question - is there a reason this can't be a web application and/or done w/ something like Adobe Air?

comment What are some things you have read that inspired and guided you as a programmer?
I hoped more people would upvote this. This book is amazing! It's not so much a guide for programming technique as it is strategy; showing you how to approach your programming career (and the profession of programming in general) by thinking of it as a life-long path and viewing yourself as an aspiring craftsman of a skilled art.

comment How do you get a client to understand the importance of a project lifecycle?
I didn't think about this one yet, nice idea. Its a project management standard and something they may have seen in their travels as well.

comment How do you get a client to understand the importance of a project lifecycle?
haha, the infamous staring contest. it would work great if payment was involved, cept its in-house and payment doesn't work that way - we are sort of "always on-call" developers.
