comment What to do about team member who threatens to leave all the time and is difficult to work with?
Two things: 1) You should clear this question to make it general, instead of just referring to your particular case. Not only it just reads like a rant and not a question but may be a reason for someone to close the question as "too localized". 2) He doesn't like me because I keep pushing for things like bug/issue tracking software and because I am good at my job Did he say this to you or this just what you believe?

Just for curiosity, why do you read code aloud? I think I never did it

comment Is it worth writing a memory error detection tool for C++ these days?
Parasoft also has a tool with this kind of functionality. Purify in my experience chokes on large code bases (and it's just a pain to use, too much false positives also).

It's difficult to know without complete information if you have a viable business plan or not. I'd suggest you to read the book "Blue Ocean Strategy", do some market research (using Porter Five Forces), and perform some competitive analysis. If you still believe after this that you have a viable product, do go for it. Usually universities also offers entrepreneur training programs that can help with this, check with a local University. You're lucky to be in India which is a hot market on it's own and is also near to the Chinese market. Best wishes!

@ammilind I know (because of your description). I cited static analysis tools because I know it exists as a viable market. Look at companies like Klockwork. There's also a couple companies selling MISRA compliance tools (if you got a parser that good, you can sell this too).

There's a great deal of commercial C++ static analysis tools out there, so a market for sure exists. If you will be able to compete and win some market share is more a business question than a programming one.

comment Automake - how to keep the source tree clean?
Uncommon. CMake should generate makefiles, not the other way around! Look for a book called Mastering CMake or at VTK or KDE building processes for real word examples. A great advantage of CMake is being on top of make: it can also build your software using Visual Studio vcproj, nmake Makefiles, XCode etc. KDE uses a shell script ('kdebuild') to start the build processes - maybe you want to take a look at it.

CMake is way cleaner than autoconf: in fact, a out of tree build is the most common way of doing a CMake build. Good choice :)

comment Automake - how to keep the source tree clean?
Just do a out-of-tree build: stackoverflow.com/questions/1311231/… it still leaves some residue, unfortunately. Give CMake a try some day.

comment Is it worth being computer languages polyglot?
I think when people suggest others to learn about new languages it's less about learning languages and more about learning new paradigms. My two main languages are Python and C++, learning Haskell has been a great experience for me, because it forces me to think in a different way than I would otherwise.
