comment Making a safe PHP login system
Is using a system such as OAuth or OpenID an option? If yes, do it. Unless you have a solid experience in security, there are few chances the system you'll create from scratch will be secure.

revised Is a private property the same as a public field?
Corrected terms: there is no such a thing as a field with getters and setters in C#.

comment Introducing a version control branching policy to a small team
@MrBliz: through switches. You can activate a feature for developers, but deactivate it for end users if it's not ready for RTM.

comment How can I reinforce that security questions answers should not be the same and how to encrypt?
Although I completely agree on the useless character of security questions (actually, I consider them not only useless, but dangerous and extremely annoying), this doesn't answer the question. Also, Yahoo, Microsoft and Facebook are some of the many companies which use security questions and may possibly qualify as “serious companies”.

comment What does it mean if a repo has one license and the files have other license statements?
In practice, it practically always means that the person changed the license in one place, but forgot to make the change in other places. As simple as that. The legal implications of that is indeed a different (and perfectly valid) question.

comment Find a line that is closest to scattered points
It's called linear regression trend line. The Wikipedia article Linear regression is a good start.

comment Working in a company that does not comment their code at all?
@Mawg: this is a long-term thinking vs. short-term thinking. In the company I was talking about, the focus was on very short-term thinking: no comments because there is no time for it, no unit tests (or any other tests), because it costs money (and in short-term, it actually costs money). When you start thinking about the long-term impact, not having comments translates indeed in a huge waste of time, and not having tests is a huge waste of time—the time developer spend debugging regressions.

comment I would like to know if there are special terms for differnt types of inheritance
I don't understand. Do you mean that in your code, you have car class inheriting from event class? This looks wrong; composition (or similar construct, depending on what you're actually doing) should be used instead.
