Developer, father, lazy git and time waster. Also has a strange obsession with squirrels.



I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question. Charles Babbage

comment Am I Unit Testing or Integration Testing my Stored Procedures?
It is a good ideal to get to. I have been working towards the same for some time. My point was that you do have start up tasks (starting a database). You can (and should) get your tests to not fail (Assert.Inconclusive in MSTest speak) if the tasks had not been performed. This area of testing a grey area of unit testing. Do write Unit Test-like tests, but accept they are integration tests.

It starts a database if one is not running?

comment Why aren't browser extensions monetized?
I do not think it would be unreasonable to release a pay-for extension, I also don't think it would do well in the market place as users now expect them to be free, the amount you can change is generally fairly limited and it would likely face free competition. --- Developer focused (or other niche markets) are a slightly different thing and could do well as pay-for extensions.

comment Why aren't browser extensions monetized?
I don't think you can compare Linux or Android with a browser. OSes don't provide for you everything required to use them productively, but rather provide the base system in which to build productivity apps on. A browser on the other hand is a productivity app and needs be competitive from the get-go. If you are to compare Browsers to OSes then the applications are websites rather than extensions. Extensions would be system tools rather than applications, and then fairly minor system tools.

comment Python productivity VS Java Productivity
I've not used Python, but have used C# which has auto properties. How much work is it in Python to add logic into that (say firing an event or validation logic)?
