Being relatively anonymous allows me to submit the stupid questions that other people are too afraid to ask.

comment Teaching myself, as a physicist, to become a better programmer
+1 for suggesting Code Complete. It really is the best thing that the op can read to solve the issue in question.

comment Is it a good idea to design an architecture thinking that the User Interface classes can be replaced by a command line interface?
@Vandell I have the Second Edition of Code Complete and this is not mentioned on page 25. Which edition are you referring to?

You might find discussions that reference Martin Fowler's 'Encapsulate Field (206)' Refactoring useful.

comment Work flow when editing files in /var/www. Constantly needing to input “sudo” commands
Is the dev server on a virtual machine? If so, I tend to ensure the 'web docs directory' is a shared directory and edit the files on my host machine.

@DeadMG If it was on Github's help site/forum I would not have seen it. Hence, I like the fact that this interesting question is here.

comment What is enterprise software, exactly?
I'm glad you asked the question because I was always confused by this. I think the term is redundant now. Nowadays anything that applies to 'Enterprise Software' basically applies to any 'large networked application' i.e 'a website'.
