comment for vs. foreach vs. LINQ
That's great if you're at a company which allows time for formal training so you can book some time to train staff when implementation of LINQ begins. However if you're not then you're running the risk of the LINQ guy leaving before they've passed on the knowledge and being left with code which no one can understand.

comment How can a student programmer improve his teamwork skill?
For point 4 to work you have to have some sort of standards, when I've done group work at uni the group members never had the same idea of what counted as good work and so their ideas of 'everything going fine' were completely different.

That only works if you have something to offer your team members ie if you're paying their salaries, the problem with student groups is you're not actually giving your group members anything and you have no real authority over them.

comment If you had to teach professional development to students that just graduated school, what would be the topics?
At my uni it depends which options you take. If you wanted you can study CS and take 2 SQL based DB modules or you could take, say, networking (CCNA equiv) and security modules (CEA equiv) and never touch SQL, both sets of options give you a degree with the same title.

comment In C and C++, what methods can prevent accidental use of the assignment(=) where equivalence(==) is needed?
@KristofProvost I've managed to get visual studio to give me 10 copies of the exact same warning fro the same line of code, then when this issue was 'fixed' it resulted in 10 identical warnings about the same line of code saying that the original method was better.
