I've heard people talk a lot about the "need for mentors". It's a slightly odd obsession. This little essay has a lot that's smart to say about the notion: (1) It's a mistake to think in terms of "mentors", just think in terms of what you want to learn, and who you want to learn from; (2) Approach people with very specific questions; (3) Pick people who you think would be particularly well suited to answer your question; (4) Think carefully about how to structure the conversation (without going overboard); and (5) Make sure to followup, simply because people like to hear that they've done something useful. - Michael Nielsen
The problems with object-oriented coding -
A thoughtful criticism of object-oriented programming, from an experienced programmer. The analogous argument for English would be something like: don't start by thinking about the nouns. "The fallacy of “object-oriented programming” is exactly that: that code is at all “object-oriented”. It isn’t. Code is procedurally oriented, and the “objects” are simply constructs that arise that allow procedures to be reused. So if you just let that happen instead of trying to force everything to work backwards, programming becomes immensely more pleasant." - Michael Nielsen
