comment What should I do if Scrum member leave half way?
If you're in need to put in extra hours, you overcommitted or something came in between that made it unable to complete the work the team committed too. In both cases you have to inform the product owner in time so he can take the appropriate action (e.g. remove some stories). Scrum says the team should work at a sustainable pace of 7-8h a day, you shouldn't work extra hours.

comment Does writing a programming blog reduce your learning speed, compared to reading other people's blogs only?
If you want to be 100% sure of what you're writing, you'll learn new things because you're checking out all aspects of your article.

comment Revenue sharing with customer who is unable to pay development fee
If he has content used by 1000 universities, then he should have enough funds to fork some over to cover (most of) the development.

comment Is it recommended to use SQL Server as database for massively scalable applications?
SQL Azure is not just a 'SQL Server in the cloud', there are some differences. But it's certainly a viable option for a large scaled site and should be looked at.

comment What do I need to know to develop a paperless application using .NET?
If you're only looking for a way to keep all notes, scans (images, ... consider using OneNote (default in Office 2010) and place notebook on your skydrive (or dropbox) so it's backed up.

comment PHP: brackets or no brackets with if/for/while/…?
This can be said for most programming languages like C++, Java, C# too. Use the brackets for readability, even if they are not necessarily needed.

comment How to convince my boss that quality is a good thing to have in code?
I've been in a SME with 4-5 devs before and at some point they also wanted to move to product development. They placed 1 dev and a parttime designer on their "product", took nearly a year before they had a first version to go to market. Now, over 2 years later they sold a dozen licenses I've heard and they're not even close to 1/5th of the costs spent on developing the product. Just saying that switching to product development is harder than most people think, certainly with a small team/long delivery time.
