comment Is a company order to switch to a certain IDE a red flag?
@FumbleFingers, I disagree strongly. It's possible that each developer is the most efficient individually using different tools than each of the other team members. As long as there are no conflicts, then this could lead to a higher level of overall efficiency than if they all used the same editor.

comment Softpedia published some of my open source projects — how to react?
But if your license for the code both allows someone else to host it and to use it in their projects, you don't really have a way to differentiate between people profiting from the code in true "work" or what you think is half-assed work - since this is totally subjective. I'm sure Softpedia considers what they are doing to be providing value and a service just as a contractor using your code would feel. I think you'd have to add clauses to the license restricting others from hosting the file, etc., but that sounds too hard to enforce.

comment How can I prevent a client from seeing my code written in an interpreted language?
What kind of contract/agreement exists between you and your client? Do they own the code, or have you merely licensed usage of it to them? Or have you not worked any of this out?

comment General tips on writing specs for Java programmers
I don't think there is anything special about specs for "Java programmers" than any developers using any other language.

That makes sense, just make sure you see this practice for what it is

comment Is Agile the new micromanagement?
Forgot not wanting to do agile, why would you want to work for a company that employs people that think these kinds of "rules" are a good idea?

comment Constructive ways to answer “What was your most challenging project? and why?”
ironic that the community doesn't think this is constructive, but the site's twitter feed think it's "interesting": twitter.com/#!/StackProgrammer/status/25732730184540160

comment What are the Top Developer Productivity Tools/Plugins for Java in Eclipse?
To be fair to Eclipse, if you are using refactoring options within a Rails/Ruby plugin than the inconsistencies may be the fault of the plugin.

comment What are the Top Developer Productivity Tools/Plugins for Java in Eclipse?
"try using Eclipse auto refactoring" I've never had a problem with Eclipse renaming variables/types/methods and producing incorrect. @Jas when was the last time you've used Eclipse, is it recently? And are you talking about the Java editor or the editor for another language? In addition, AFAIK up until recent versions Visual Studio's refactoring options have paled in comparison to Eclipse's.
