comment Tight Coupling Between Javascript, HTML, and CSS: A More Modern Approach?
I actually recommend against using class, element, and ID selectors for many things, and instead focus on using custom [data-*] attribute selectors, which can be used in very powerful ways.

comment Do we set the bar too high by requiring that code tests not suffer from buffer overflow?
If the junior developer was able to see the issue, they would have fixed the issue. If it were me, I'd test their ability to work with you. Tell them what the issue is and where it can be found, give them the same treatment you'd give your actual colleagues and see how they react. If working with them is a chore, they're not right for the position. If working with them is a pleasure, then hire them.

comment Git-friendly spreadsheet format?
@AlexanderGladysh, actually I'd say CSV can handle equations just fine if you pick the right format, the issue is that you'd need to configure a reader such that it parses and evaluates those equations.

comment What's with the aversion to documentation in the industry?
This misses the point of comments, which is to explain why. They don't need to be all over the place, and they don't need to be very long, but a well placed link to the business rules describing why the next 20 lines of really bizarre logic exist in its current state is way more convenient than trying to slog through version history to find the original reasoning.

comment In languages that don't allow underscores in integer constants, is it a good practice to create a constant for 1 billion?
@MathewFoscarini, "millimeters per meter" is a way to remove the unit on the conversion to get the raw value. 1mm/1m = 1000, which is exactly the point of what's being done here.
