comment What would be a good name of practices you don't (usually) learn at university?
I overheard other students talking about svn in the hallway at university so I decided to give it a try and actually used it on my programming asignments. But AFAIK there wasn't a single class where VCS were taught. Joel's blog did the rest and now I'm a mercurial addict :-)

comment Hate repetition to the extreme
You should really read that through again and remove half the text. "Remove half the words on your pages, and then remove half of what's left" (Steve Krug) ;-)

comment Interesting interview question
I was a little confused by you calling 'int i' an iterator. Maybe I lack knowledge and that can really be called an iterator, but for me an iterator is something a little more complex related to Data Structures.

comment Should we put the specification documents in source control system such as svn?
It doesn't adress the "Overwriting changes from multiple editors" issue though.

comment What do you do to remain productive when working on your own?
@Morons I do think some kind of discipline such as work X time and then take a break is helpful (like the Pomodoro Technique). If you always take a break when you feel you need one maybe you'll never get anything done ;-)
