Oh. OK that makes perfect sense then. Glad I asked. :)

comment Scrum Daily meeting: Punctuality over Full team presence?
Only problem with "first thing in the morning when everyone is available" is that there isn't the rhythm obtained from doing it at the same time everyday. It also doesn't allow the later arrivals time to get engaged with work and catch back up so they won't forget anything in their daily scrum. I think your point about starting with no delay is a good one! It teaches everyone to be on time. That is an excellent point and one I will suggest we adopt.

comment Is it bad coding practice to create something in a get if it does not exist?
@kevincline, I guess I was thinking about it in terms of, let's say, charging my credit card. If the server charges my card based on a GET request but still gives me a result like "declined" every time I run it, that feels like it goes against the spirit of GET. With that said, I do see your point. The server could count the number of GET requests and lock me out after 3 queries, thereby rate limiting me, but without changing any details of my account. I do think that's an important distinction when one says the server state isn't modified. Perhaps I should say "client state on server" instead

revised Do you think code is self documenting?
added a link to Jeff's blog article detailing the subject, which seems to be where this idea comes from.

comment How can a manager ensure developers are pushing up to the origin every day?
@bogeyc - There's some HR processes that can fix "not smart". I believe it's known as "termination". :D But I get what you're saying and agree 100%... you can't really treat knowledge workers like we're part of a manufacturing process.

Unfortunately, not every developer is smart.

comment Does anyone know of a simple (free?) feature request tracking system we could use internally for sales people?
Sure @MuhammadUmer, and a bug tracking software solution and mailing list is perfect for documenting what users want. However, the point of my post is this: Don't go off trying to build bug tracking software yourself if you're actually tasked with building sales CRM software. Your sales CRM software will suck if your engineers get distracted by trying to build other things, especially when there are already great bug tracking and mailing list solutions in the market. Hope this helps clarify. :)

comment What is the proper way to extract and pass parameters to call javascript functionality from my PHP page?
Oh okay, @http203, that would be the module pattern, and you can expose any function you need access to via window.Class = Class or window.myMethod = myMethod. Not sure if this helps or not. Good luck!
