comment Is a coding standard even needed any more?
+1 for stifling innovation, controlling subsets, general best practices, and politics. Educate, don't regulate!

comment Writing a company-wide developer's handbook
+1 for keeping it simple and concentrating on important issues. We really don't need "big government" mandates on coding styles.

comment Recommendations for teaching junior programmers good coding style
@RusselBorogove - What if we don't like putting the constant first? The problem with coding guidelines is that they end up being a select few's preferences and the rest of us have to suffer with stupid rules like the 'constant first' or 'some type prefix' on every variable name. Let me write my code as I prefer and you can change it with tools if it bothers you that much.

comment How would you know if you've written readable and easily maintainable code?
@RangiLin - You're right. Don't dumb down the code for team-members who can't be bothered to learn on their own time.

comment Is it wise to ask about design decisions made on a product during an interview?
You should be able to ask any question you want without the interviewer yelling and getting bent out of shape. Would you really want to work under that person's leadership? Walking out without taking the guy's head off first impresses me, but walking out is the only correct option in this situation.
