comment What is your favorite whiteboard interview problem?
I call them baloongrams. ;) Just draw cicles, put names and connect them with named arrows. I don't care about his application but about the fact he understood it.

comment How often should a manager meet with his subordinate who is a team leader?
that's why we try to do at fixed time (standup meetings). Still part of my job as TL is to shield the rest of the team from interruptions, taking them on myself.

comment How often should a manager meet with his subordinate who is a team leader?
I agree with your list, and I think that ideally PM and TL should communicate several times a day to keep everybody happy.

comment How often should a manager meet with his subordinate who is a team leader?
I'm speaking about meetings with other teams, basically in every organization there are things you can change and things you cannot. If it's needed that me or the TL attend the meeting for PR with other team I'd say it's a useful use of our time. Anyway I feel this is going far from the original question.

comment How often should a manager meet with his subordinate who is a team leader?
If TL doesn't need to discuss (voice, skype, email) with PM more than once a week, I'm wondering what kind of job the PM is doing all the time. How is it possible that they don't need to exchange information?

comment How often should a manager meet with his subordinate who is a team leader?
No... where you got that? Technical meetings -> I go Political meetings -> he goes Technical-Political meetings -> we go together The point of the book is not being efficient anyway, it's about being effective. Actually I think that would be more efficient skip 90% of the meetings, but that would irritate other teams and managers and ultimately would cause our failure.

comment Organizing uncommented, dirty code?
"But what will you do if you have to analyze the code to extract the relations?" -> if this is the case it means the project is neither tiny nor broken. Aka I'll start doing refactoring one piece at time. See also the Mikado method. danielbrolund.wordpress.com/2009/03/28/…
