comment Microchip XC8: How to pack code against an upper limit?
Yup. The XC8 compiler will do very strange things when optimizing. In one case, it decided that my interrupt service routine was not needed......

comment Why shouldn't you develop on production database?
+1 for the "SQL where clause was incorrect". I remember working with a bunch of data, and I had a delete statement with a where clause on the next line. I kept that statement in the query window because I used it a bunch. Well, one time, I missed selecting the where clause, and blew away 2 months worth of data. FORTUNATELY, this was on a development server, and the data was not real. But if this was production, we would have crashed and burned until a backup could have been loaded.

comment What is the difference between programming for microcontrollers and programming for embedded systems?
I just finished up a project for school where I had to program both on an embedded system (Raspberry Pi), and micro controllers (2 PIC16F767s), and this is an excellent answer. Microcontroller = no (or very limited) OS. You get to handle all the nitty gritty details. An embedded system, you might get an OS to isolate you from the hardware.

comment C# gadgets overloading the form (can't see the woods for the trees)
I've had to deal with a few apps designed this way, and the document outline window can at least help you find and select what you're looking for. Go to View-> Other Windows -> Document Outline, or press Ctrl+W, then U.

comment Woes of a Junior Developer - is it possible to not be cut out for programming?
The learning curve is steep enough that I'm pretty sure it goes inverted at some point.
