comment Newbie ASP.NET developer being forced into MVC4 with WebForms
There's also the option of trying to convince them to use Razor view engine instead of WebForms view engine. And although you probably want to avoid this in production, they could live side by side, sort of.

comment async+await == sync?
Not exactly. Your code is synchronous in a sense that nothing happens until you get a result. However underneath, you probably gave up the thread you were running on until the async method returned, then got assigned another thread to continue executing.

comment Is there tool agnostic terminology for source control activities?
What kind of conversation do you want to have with the team. I feel like when it comes to process, the activities you listed may be a bit too low level?

comment Is there tool agnostic terminology for source control activities?
Among centralized ones and among distributed ones the language is pretty similar. Some of the vocabulary won't map well across the two different types just because conceptually they are different.

comment Why is the sudden increase in number of Git submitters on Debian popcon graph in 2010-01?
I think both git and hg started around 2005, by 2010 they were 5 year old technology. I wouldn't have called them mainstream, but I don't think bleeding edge is correct either.

comment How involved should our employers be in our education?
@ApprenticeQueue At which point you are able to leave and find a company that does show an interest in your career. You don't just compete with other developers for work, companies also compete withe each other for talent.

comment When, how and why should one upgrade (Java) frameworks?
@NikolayFominyh Although change for the sake of change is bad, that kind of attitude often leads to poorly maintained and poorly understood software that breaks in the most inconvenient way possible. As Martijn points out, eventually vendor drops support, or you need a bug/security fix. The longer you've put off upgrades, the harder it will be.

comment Are there open source alternatives to Bitbucket, Github, Kiln, and similar DVCS browsing and management tools?
Cydra project looks like it barely got started a few months ago and doesn't appear to be very actively developed. May be a bit immature to mention.

comment Is it better to use multiple html pages or just change content on the same page using JavaScript?
If it's logically different content it would make more sense for it to be on different pages.

comment Is it better to use multiple html pages or just change content on the same page using JavaScript?
Is it three different views of the same content (different filters, etc) or is it three different pages (like home, help, about us)?

comment How to motivate co-workers to write unit-tests?
In theory it's a good idea, but it's hard to answer the question So if you know unit tests are good, why aren't you using them? without sounding like like an asshole eg I don't know how or I don't have time or I'm smart my code should work. That situation would normally make people defensive and you'd get poor results.
