comment Are there benefits to deriving versions from SCM branch?
That model is in my mind for when I can finally force the switch to git. That author mentions using files in SCM to track versions (which is part of what got me thinking about this). I'm sure switching our derivation technique to use git would be non-trivial, so that's another concern...

comment Best practices for upgrading user data when updating versions of software
@Javy That's kinda my point - I don't see a real advantage to using a datestamp over the versioning you are already using for the software on the deployment side. I did just think of, though, the fact that your development build would benefit from micro-updates between versions. This would allow you to use the same data update framework without having to run manual update scripts on your dev data. Of course, you could just wipe your dev data when needed.

comment Facebook and Twitter authentication from Mobile Applications
@tyndall I haven't actually developed any mobile apps using the FB SDK - I just remembered it from using the other API docs. :) I have seen implementations (using Twitter, I think) where it appeared as if there were an equivalent of an iframe in the app for authentication. Given what the Twitter link has to say, you should probably be able to redirect to a URI which will be intercepted by iOS/Android (i.e. myapp://authdone). Sorry I can't be of more help.

comment Best practices for recovering usernames
Agreed - no problem with a "display name", as it's not used for logging in. :)
