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 What is a good support knowledge base tool?
@Guillaume I think you could tailor it to support development if you wanted to. Just give each type of issue a separate page and use categories if it becomes too big to be handle. I think the bigger issue is getting people to contribute to any system, allocate some time to actually writing the documentation instead of just expecting it to be done.

comment What is a good support knowledge base tool?
@EmmadKareem I think every software house already does that the issue is that cases repeat and some cases may be different but related to the same route cause ect

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.

I know this isn't really what you're looking for but I do the same sort of work and everything tends to get sorted out at the dev support stand-up. We have a few wiki pages for some standard fixes but people rarely use any written documentation other than the business specs so there seems little point in extending it.
