comment Is agile about development or management?
@ashy_32bit: Not a question anyone can answer without knowing the team and the project. Not every team or project would benefit from Agility. However, I have worked on a team that was doing Scrum and CI and nothing else (from the Agile box of tricks) and it worked better in that case than doing neither of these things. But we sought to improve our Agility over time.

comment Is it dangerous for me to give some of my Model classes Control-like methods?
Wait. Just saw your edit. What kind of app is this? Web or Windows or something else?

I think you're confusing the domain model (the M of MVC) with the data model. The domain model contains all the logic of your domain. The data model just contains data.

How do you think this is deviating from MVC?

comment *Code owner* system: is it an efficient way?
@Vatine: Right. So you break your code into modules and have a team working on each module. You still don't have a piece of code owned by one person.

comment Is catching general exceptions really a bad thing?
@BobHorn: Two ways of looking at that. Yes, you can say that logging isn't particularly important and if it fails then it shouldn't bring your app to a halt. And that's a fair enough point. But, what if your application fails to log for five months and you had no idea? I've seen this happen. And then we needed the logs. Disaster. I would suggest doing everything you can think of to stop logging failing is better than ignoring it when it does. (But you're not going to get much of a consensus on that.)
