comment In Scrum, who verifies “Done”?
@Derek: I think you're having a misunderstanding based on unclear terminology. There is both a "Scrum Team" and a "Development Team", with the latter being a part of the former, as well as the Product Owner and Scrum Master.

comment How to convey your approach is faster than the built-in, alternative approaches?
"orders of magnitude faster" implies per definition a speedup of at least 100x.

comment What happens during “loading” screens?
@Creative Magic: if your system is based on garbage collection, it will happen all the time during gameplay. Modern garbage collectors can spread the load out quite well. But most games are still written mainly in C++ and do manual memory management, so there is no garbage collection at all.

comment What happens during “loading” screens?
Garbage collection is definitely not "a very heavy CPU time consuming process" to a degree that it would add noticeable delay to the startup of a game.

comment Does anyone else feel Scrum isn't agile?
@Georgio: depends on what you mean by micromanagement. The goal of a daily standup in SCRUM is to keep everyone informed on what everyone else is doing, not to provide an opportunity for a project manager to chastise people for not meeting estimates. In fact, there is no project manager in SCRUM, tracking and adjusting estimates is the job of the team, and if they are not met the question to ask is "what caused it and how can we avoid or allow for it in the future?", not "whose fault is it and how bad can we make him feel?"

comment Will interns and entry level positions care more about algorithms or projects/experience
@aaa: I studied CS 12 years ago in Germany, so I can't really give you any recommendations, but anything that's labelled as introduction or entry-level material on algorithms and has good reviews should work. See whether the table of contents covers my list above. Note that it's really more about data structures than algorithms, though the two concepts are very closely related.

comment What exactly happens on a LAMP machine when I request a php file?
@abe3: books are probably best to get an overview. To be honest, I haven't worked much with PHP so I can't recommend anything in particular.
