comment Is agile about development or management?
@pdr Well he's definitely agile, he just doesn't follow any agile development process that we would adhere to. But perhaps it's more talking about "Agile" the noun, i.e. the process that's a bit like Scrum, that irks me most.

comment Is agile about development or management?
Am I the only one who doesn't think "agile" should have a capital letter? I'm not just being a grammatical pedant - it's important. Understand agility as a quality: if your team is agile, it is flexible, adaptable, methodical. I always find confusion starts when they talk about "Agile" as if it's the name of a standard pattern or process to which they must adhere.

Scrum is agile. With a lowercase 'a'. Agile is an adjective, not the name of a thing. Apart from that, I think this answer makes sense.

comment Does following TDD inevitably lead to DI?
The 'no' part being I don't think it's a direct link between TDD and DI. It's indirect via code quality. Which is splitting hairs probably, but just thought I'd point out that code quality is the thing you're aiming for, not just testability.

comment Function declaration as var instead of function
@Austin There's nothing wrong with a function definition within an if statement either!
