comment How much freedom should a programmer have in choosing a language and framework?
Agreed. It's all about economics. Once you put an economic spin to your viewpoint, ANY lead who's real, will hear you out and reconsider their stance. Make the tradeoff explicit: Ex.: More time implies things will come later implies a deadline maybe missed implying a revenue hit. Sometimes, they need to shown the path to the goal of the 'trade off' in essence.

comment Why use a database instead of just saving your data to disk?
Just because a 'cycle' serves your purpose doesn't imply that a car is useless :)

+1 for invisible disabilities. These are hard to catch and almost always the person doesn't want to tell unless absolutely necessary. Good point

comment Why do we use story points instead of man days when estimating user stories?
21 or 20 doesn't matter when estimating. SPs round off the next fibonacci number to eliminate the sense of false precision. The next number in the sequence is not 34 but 40 (double of 20) and then 100. The numbers represent 'uncertainty' in complexity and not precision. It's only an approximation.

comment Why store a function inside a python dictionary?
@Martjin - Couldn't this be called an implementation of the 'Command Pattern' in that case? Seems like that's the concept the OP is trying to grasp?
