I've used my brand-spanking new content creation system to post an article here. Here's what it's about:
One of the great things about working at DevelopMentor is access to the internal mailing lists. Being able to send a message off to that particular group of smart people has helped me more than once.
As you might expect, instructors at DM are not just bright people, but highly opinionated. So in addition to just answering each other's questions on the internal lists, we also frequently (continuously might be more accurate, actually) debate the merits of issues both technological and social.
One recent debate revolved around whether or not developers should run as administrator. This is something that Keith Brown has been advocating. Since there's been a lot of public discussion around this issue lately on mailing lists and weblogs, I thought it would be interesting to post the discussion here, publicly, to both show people both sides of the argument and to give them a glimpse into the inside of DM.
