comment How to show to management that unit testing is cheaper in the long run than manual testing?
Quite probably - but that's the problem with such rules, you get work done just to fulfil them. This rule is the cause of the problem, and you're trying to treat the symptoms.

comment How to show to management that unit testing is cheaper in the long run than manual testing?
Usually developersa will test the complex parts and not the simple bits. Who wants to write unit tests for the getters like the WTF link? That's a huge load of make-work for no benefit. Devs don't like that. We write tests to prove the awkward stuff works, even if you don't do unit testing, we still write those tests. 100% coverage sounds like a rule from ignorant management rather than a way to actually obtain real quality. I can write unit tests that pass, yet still have a broken app.

comment What's so bad about pointers in C++?
note that your 'blah' class is effectively (almost) a smart pointer. Nothing wrong with using a pointer in such a way, the problems come when you're passing them around like biscuits.

But beware that web server. I like the look of Nxweb from that link, but YMMV. Enjoy.

comment C++ Web Development for REST API
@BartvanIngenSchenau well boost has one, and its pretty much the non-standard standard library. All these languages have this functionality as part of libraries, some libs just happen to be bundled with the default install. C++ doesn't have a controlling company to bundle these for you. Maybe someone should! (BTW Visual C++ does come bundled with "REST services for C++" now)

comment C++ Web Development for REST API
@BartvanIngenSchenau so? Neither does C# or PHP. I think only node.js has webserver functionality included in it out of the box. Don't mistake Apache as being part of PHP, or IIS or WCF as part of C#.

comment Where can I find “SVN for Git Users” resources?
I did mention the tree conflict issue... Such a state is a problem for other scms, though I understand git uses a heuristic to detect if the moved file is the same one, it can still get it wrong if the changes are significant (eg the file being split into 2).
