comment how to break up feature requests into work units
The general tasks may be tracked on the ticket, the indiviual units of work the the programmer decides are needed to do the coding are probably going to be a personal thing. Small projects you can keep in your head, otherwise you need a paper or electronic to-do list, whatever works for you. Ususally I keep a paper to-do list, if I get really busy I keep an electronic one mixed with my personal to-do list and a daily paper to do list so i don't forget anything.

comment How to get the most out of an annoying project
This is a little off-topic for programmers.se , but if you don't like the managerial side of things you need to make sure whoever put you in charge knows you don't want to do it again. If your company doesn't have a job advancement track that goes technical and not managerial you might want to suggest one. Otherwise, I suggest you tackle your job as a problem solving experiment and use the same tools as you would in programming. Break the problem down into smaller peices and tackle them one at a time :-)

comment Steps required to start programming in C++ to develop native applications
I think adding any new language is going to add value to your resume, but since this is mostly a question about the tools you need to get started the faq suggests SO would be the better place to ask - voting to move it over for you.

comment Free/low-cost online resources to study for certifications
This is a nice answer but it doesn't answer the question that is asked. There are a number of 'Are certifications worth it' questions that this would be a great answer for though.
