comment Who does test-driven development?
@CraigTP - right on, for most manager employees are only interchangeable pieces like furniture. The good managers understand that their job is not to control and manage their employees but to manage the world around them to make them able to work.

comment Who does test-driven development?
@CraigTp - There is a whole chapter in the book Peopleware: Productive Projects and Teams that rant against the "Methodology" saying that it kills the motivation and extinguish the inner flame one can have if the "Methodology" is too tight because it removes the liberty of individual supposing that they will make systematically bad choices. A good working environment is one where the individual can make decision that he judge are the best for the "greater good", if it fail then adjust, but otherwise, let the individual be the center of decision, not the "Methodology"

comment Where can I ask for an accessibility review for a site?
quick test for accessiblity are : black and white version, light and moderate red, blue, green, orange, yellow hues (this will allow you to discernate if the content can easily be seen by color blind people) then you can deactivate css and javascript, if you still get your reading levels and most of the content you are about 80% accessibility bullet proof

comment “As” Naming Convention
The Hungarian notation would good be a naming convention if Microsoft hadn't broken it. The notation should not state the type but the nature of the variable content. For string the microsoft way of doing it is prefix everything with a "s" so all the strings are the same, but if you use it to qualify a string as safe (from the system) and un-safe (from the user) you will have something clearer to work with like usName = fromFormElement and sName = fromDatabase. You can read more on that on joelonsoftware.com/articles/Wrong.html
