comment Formatting code a bad thing when using a VCS?
The formatting of the code is as important as the changes that were made. Readability has to be one of the highest priorities when you're on a team. Your VP should know that and be concerned about it.

comment How often should you change pairs?
@Jeff O: What we're trying to accomplish here is that we all get to know all the code and features that are in the project and that we all pair with everybody else, so that way different ideas might come to solve each new problem.

comment if ('constant' == $variable) vs. if ($variable == 'constant')
@Rick It might sound natural in language, but you can't deny that when you see code like that, you have to stop first (maybe only for a second) to think what is it that it's trying to do.

comment How can I overcome a badly structured software development model?
@picmate first of all, this steps are not to be applied separately. They overlap each other, they're not in any particular order (except for the first one). I'll be posting some links later in the day

@picmate Sure man, that's your call. Also, when teching by example, be sure to praise any progress the developers make.

comment What should be done with code that has reached end of life?
That might be looking too much ahead into the future. You'll probably not gonna need it anyways. How many times do we go ahead and say "Oh! Let me add this awesome tweak to the system. The clients are surely gonna need it later"? I like to think a little bit more about the now :)

comment Code Reviews, what are the advantages?
Oh, but you get to know the whole team better, and you also get better general knowledge of the problem domain, as well as 3 or 4 different opinions from all the team members and not just from one :)

comment Code Reviews, what are the advantages?
What are you referring to when you say "the longer the team works together - the faster it gets"? And how is that a bad thing?
