comment ASP.NET storing encrypted & salted Password
@Alternatex he's asking how to store the password. Whether he should be storing it at all is another question... While I agree that if he has to ask how to store it he's likely better of not storing it at all, it serves no purpose attacking people who're giving correct ways to do just that. Write your own answer explaining why he should not store it and have people read that...

comment How important is it to reduce the number of lines in code?
I have encountered environments where using the ternary operator was expressly forbidden. Usually they were environments in transition from PL/SQL or similar to Java where the people were afraid of tersity... As to your statement that there is no performance impact from writing more code, there may be depending on what the code is. If you replace an operator with a method call for example there definitely is an impact (and it may be a serious impact).

comment Should I use scrum for big projects?
@MichaelT where I work, project teams are agile, but the support infrastructure definitely is not. So we as a team deliver something that can be used every few weeks, but we only have one production deploy every 3-4 months at best which is the state of what's ready for production at that time. Organisation in flux, hopefully. Took them 3 months to get us a test server for example. So we just made do with a laptop as a project internal test server until that time...

comment In Scrum, should developers talk directly to customers (bypassing the PO)?
the goal for all should be to deliver the best possible product under budget and on target. It's only how to do that that's a potential source of discussion.

comment In Scrum, should developers talk directly to customers (bypassing the PO)?
@Giorgio of course, depends on the people involved. But it's what SCRUM (and Agile practices in general) promotes, short lines, rapid decision making. In our case it works because the customer is really enthousiastic and wants the product to succeed, but they're also realistic enough to realise that not everything is possible (certainly not within the budgetary and technical limits we have to work with).
