    Mostly what Mike has already said above. I would suggest the intellij website would be a good place for you to find out the specifics though. Or even better why not take advantage of the 30 day free trial to see for yourself in practice?

    It's not that you can't use Spring with the community edition, of course you can, it's that the ide does not offer you any help with it.

    That looks super shiny and new Liutauras, mind you don't drop it. Or park it where you shouldn't.

    I started this thread quite some time ago and have now noticed that I never returned to it. I bought a bike in January last year, a 2004 Honda 650 Transalp, it's super comfortable and I can see over the top of most cars because it's quite a tall riding position which is perfect for commuting. Plus it does 150 miles on a tank.

    Mine is the black one on the left.


    Thanks for all the comments and recommendations, they were really helpful when choosing what to buy.

    Unless of course you're using your technical skills for some personal project or agenda, like developing new features for your favourite programming forum for example. But in that case be prepared for follow up questions on why you love that forum so much that you devote your spare time into it.

    That's what the other questions are about. For this question I'm trying to figure out what kind of person you are, which is important because the hardest part of writing software in a team environment is not writing software but the interpersonal skills to work with others. Essentially I'm trying to figure out if the current team could work with you or whether you'd do our heads in.

    To answer your question: when I ask this to a candidate I specifically don't want to hear about your technical skills and achievements.

    When I ask that question in an interview I want to learn a little something about you as a person. What are your hobbies? What do you like to do outside of work? Maybe something interesting about your life journey up to this point? That kind of thing. I would have plenty of other questions to tease out details about your project work so to respond to this question with project talk would not be positive for me.

    Thanks for the feedback. ClamAV got multiple mentions so I'm going to go with that I think, although it looks like some careful setup is required which will need some thought and experimentation. The positive side effect being I can use it for our Linux machines too.

    This question pops up every few years but I'm now in a position where I have to evaluate what protections are appropriate for a fleet of company MacBook machines.

    So... again... is an antivirus program required/recommended for Mac?

    If so, which tool would you recommend?
