comment Why does automated testing keep failing in my company?
@SkipHuffman With a complex stack on an integration platform, many new devs come in not understanding how to run tests. If you don't have CI in place, your first step is to teach devs how to run tests and how to write tests appropriate for the platform. If you have CI in place, they can learn from existing infrastructure, and you can focus on teaching them higher-level concepts like why various design decisions were made. No human can consistently demonstrate the value of testing to the entire team as well as CI.

comment Version control: Dealing with incomplete/broken code
@jk. yes, I didn't really mean agnostic to DVCS, I meant general to all version control systems. Updated.

comment Version control: Dealing with incomplete/broken code
The winter storm was just an example. It happens quite regularly that (at least senior) devs need to relocate while code is incomplete. It's also useful for junior devs to be able to push code to a shared location for help and review.

comment Can I (reasonably) refuse to sign an NDA for pro bono work?
To be sure, I'm not arguing or asking about whether the NDA request is appropriate (of course it is). I'm simply asking if I should keep working on this project for free after creating a legal obligation for myself.
