SE-Radio and hiring programmers

Via OSNews comes a nice article by Daniel Tenner about How to recognise a good programmer. It's aimed mainly at business people, but also is a nice piece of information for developers who want to verify this theory by comparing to themselves, or small indie developers who want to hire their first employee.

Also, the Software Engineering Radio recently had an episode on Organization of large code bases. It mainly targets Java, but a lot of what they say is valid for all kinds of object-oriented languages, and they mention some interesting metrics they use to help them assess whether their code is still maintainable.

The episode isn't quite as good as the others, as the interviewer doesn't ask enough questions, IMHO (feels like he knows the stuff too well already), but it's still a worthwhile listen if you have an hour to blow.
