comment Discussing salary as a jr developer
A junior developer making 28? I've been doing this for years and I make 25. This is interesting to me. What area of the US do you live in?

comment How to get my boss to implement a more consistent workflow
I have done that, and I've been told, "there isn't enough time in the budget to do this right now. I'd love to do it, but we just can't right now". Even though it absolutely leads to much much time being spent overall due to bad process.

comment How to get my boss to implement a more consistent workflow
I mean, this is a problem that has been going on for about half a year, and I have reiterated the need for greater process/work-flow over that time. I just don't want to work overtime month, after month, after month, after month. It is -exhausting-. I don't feel I should be the fall guy for what seem to be unrealistic deadlines. Being constantly told, "this needs to be done TODAY, it is an EMERGENCY" every day, and being given very short timeframes (15-20 hours for a major refactoring project with a bunch of new architecture and no planning time just seems like a bad idea)

comment Why is HIV associated with weight loss/being underweight?
Whatever you do, don't get HIV to lose weight. Dealing with HIV is going to be a much, much greater annoyance than losing weight is. I don't have it myself, but I know someone who does, and it isn't pleasant.

comment Getting information from Facebook inside PhoneGap Build
I want to use PhoneGap Build, as indicated in my title and in my question. If I can't use the Facebook API without installing the CLI, so be it, but the final product will be built using PhoneGap Build.

comment Finding software development contracts
That's because people think this sort of stuff is simple. I have a friend that wanted me to work on a project, I said no, I didn't have time, and they were like, "That's fine, I want to learn to code anyway". "Ok, are you going to put a multi-year commitment into it?"

comment How to push back on overtime when it is reducing performance?
It's 10, but I typically take a short/no lunch. And no, not really anything offered in return.
