comment Scrum: How much can the Product Owner shake up the Product Backlog?
@BryanOakley: But note there are two backlogs. The product backlog is controlled by the PO and ordered appropriately. The sprint backlog which is owned by the SM (and/or team). The stuff that goes in the sprint backlog should be from the top of the product backlog BUT not all stories can be done without other architectural stories being implemented first. So the SM (and the devs) should make sure to pick architectural priorities first when the high priority stories depend on the architectural stories.

comment Scrum: How much can the Product Owner shake up the Product Backlog?
@BryanOakley: I totally agree with you. Maybe my wording just needs refining. Maybe more the teams job (rather than SM by himself) to pick what goes into the sprint during sprint planning (PM is not a pig (just a chicken) and gets no say at this point).

@user226825: Read the definition of story. It is a description of a user performing a task not a thing.

@user226825: Yes but in sprint one you built wheels and transmission. In Sprint 2 you built steering in sprint three you will build thrusters. Your examples are too hypothetical to really discuss further. But yes the PO gets to order the product backlog.

@user226825: Once you have built the bike you can go back to building the car. But what is the point in building a car when the user wants a bike. That is why you have demos. So the user can see what you have done and tell you that you are on the wrong track and building a car when he only wants a bike.

comment Scrum: How much can the Product Owner shake up the Product Backlog?
@user226825: So. Since you have not done any work on jobs in the product backlog what does it matter. You do the most important story's that the PO wants (making sure architecture is not impacted). The problem with developers is they want to develop "cool" stories. The job of the PO is to make sure the work you do is relevant to the people that use the software. The job of the SM is to make sure the architecture is not compromised by the PO, make sure the developers do appropriate jobs.

comment Trailing slash in RESTful API
@oberlies: It depends on context. There are no hard and fast rules only best practices. There are always expcetions to the rule and it should mean what you expect it to mean. In the example above: GET http://example.com/dogs may return meta information about the dogs (not the list itself but meta information about the list of dogs). Maybe or maybe its an error.

comment How to solve the problem of nested comments
In C/C++ if you want to remove large sections you use #if 0 <code> #endif. So this is not really an issue. Using comments to do this is the wrong tool.

comment Why is (position < size) such a prevalent pattern in conditionals?
I disagree about (yoda conditional) that it is common to reverse the order for conditional tests anymore (it was a phad that has passed (because it can be done better and more accurately by the language compiler/interpreter)). programmers.stackexchange.com/q/162256/12917

The int is signed. The char it is implementation defined if it is signed or unsigned.

@user1369975: The fact that the program does not work as you expect shows your assumption is false. The real question is what do you think the phrase means. Then we can decide if it even applies.

comment Violation of the C definition?
@DocBrown: I would argue that undefined behavior is non confirming thus not a valid program. But I am not going to argue that point too hard. As you are probably correct.

Is the C standard being violated here? No. The program is just not a valid C program.

This assumption meaning that the character is in machine's printing character set is not true.

comment Why is C so high in TIOBE index of popularity, while C++ is just under here too, but not as popular?
Here is how the calculate the number: tiobe.com/index.php/content/paperinfo/tpci/tpci_definition.htm hits on a search engine indicate something. But I am not sure popularity is what you are measuring.
