comment How do you include Support in your Sprint?
I edited my question to clarify. I don't consider "support" to be part of sprint work, just because it happens at the same time as your sprint. You're taking time out of your sprint to do support. So it reduces the amount of sprint work you can do.

comment As a young developer, should I be worried about having to use “out-of-style” tech at work?
@Ryathal there's a Red Green joke in there somewhere.

comment How do you code without offending?
That said, what you are getting "done" in a commit should be small enough that you're checking code in several times a week, and ideally a few times a day. You might need to break things down into several sub-tasks to do that.

If you're concerned about losing work or creating "checkpoints" for work that might break stuff, you should be doing that work in a branch, not trunk. You can still do that, even if they keep working out of trunk.

You shouldn't be checking stuff in unless it's "done", to a reasonable extent. So you should have updated your working copy to the latest code (resolving any conflicts), built successfully locally, and ran tests (or, if you don't have automated tests, done your own smoke tests to verify that your changes work as expected and don't break something else) before checking in. But if you're doing that, and they still feel you check in code "too often", I really don't see their point.

Do they feel you check code in too often? Or too seldom?

Yes, that's mentioned in the link, but the blockquote is already big enough.

+1 for "The productivity gained by language/platform/IDE choice on any major language/platform/IDE is fairly small."

comment As the team leader/manager, what kind of role should I seek when we switch to Scrum?
I think it's dangerous for the PO to be the SM as well.
