comment What pattern to use when you have to hide/show different sections on a form depending on a dropdown value?
Of course, AngularJS would make that very, very simple. No if ... then code, just an ng-show or ng-hide on each HTML element.

comment distinguish requests from the same vehicle
Doesn't Route give you a bus number and thus identify the bus? Also, what's wrong with multiple reports about the same bus? After all, you are tracking its movement. I don't think that I quite understand the problem; could you please clarify? Thanks. Are you perhaps checking for invalid bus number?

comment How to work on a program from any computer that is connected to the internet?
In your situation, I use DropBox. However, if relying on auto-synch like DropBox, make sure that your IDE is regularly saving files (automatic, by timer), or you will one day inevitability walk away from some unsaved code & start working on an older version at another location.

comment Blocking function call with asynchronous content
I have awarded this the answer as it does indeed answer the question as posted. However, I just realized that this is a C++11 feature and my company is frozen at C++03, so I have posted a new question to find another way to do it. Anyone who is interested can look at stackoverflow.com/questions/30477812/…

The lowest voted answer (+1) is the only one that actually addresses Unix :-(

comment Blocking function call with asynchronous content
Indeed they will. And I wholeheartedly concur with them. However, I have been given a requirement and I must either fulfil it or declare it impossible. Discussion is not possible in this case, but a statement that it is not possible might be. Preferably would be an indication of how to code this, or an alternative architecture which still meets the singe requirement of non-blockingness.

comment How would a new language look if it was designed from scratch to be easy to TDD?
But do you want to leave the tests in there? Would you leave them enabled for production code? Maybe they could be #ifdef'd out for C, otherwise we are looking at code-size/run-time hits.

So, did you get sacked? Can your boss maintain the C# code himself?

comment How should I behave as a developer in a project that's headed for failure?
No matter how bad the previous team, 1.5 months before deadline is not a got time to replace them, with the resultant learning curve for the new team. If I were the manager, I would have left the project with the team ought to understand it.

comment What to do as a Dev when for years their team has lacked product innovation, not used project mgmt methodologies, and kept bad Software Dev practices?
Shore talks about his champion ("somebody I work with who has more clout than me and thinks along generally the same lines I do" -- to that I have to add "but isn't trying to change anything". Don't expect too much

comment What to do when opensource project starts to tear apart? (or a manager tries to write code and then shouts at the team)
What does he contribute to the project? If it's not much, why don't you just fork the project and carry on without him?
