comment Scrum task over estimation
@guillaume31: Yes, I meant stories, sorry. Also real velocity will not increase forever but will asymptotically reach a maximum. So eventually you cannot blame developers for not increasing the velocity over X sprints since they might simply have reached their best velocity already. In other words, looking at the velocity alone is not sufficient to find out if the developers are overestimating stories.

comment Scrum task over estimation
Bring up the point that the team's velocity hasn't improved over X sprints and ask "how could we do better ?": They could improve the velocity by just overestimating tasks: more points per sprint equals better velocity. How to prevent them from doing this?

comment A weakness of the TDD method?
What is not clear to me yet is how a square root algorithm should emerge incrementally by adding tests one at a time: no matter how many special cases you test, in order to implement the final algorithm you have to analyse the problem and solve it. IMO TDD does not help much in this case.

comment How do you control code quality on your team?
Maybe you are just experiencing a common misconception: that adopting TDD, MVC, coding standards and what not will automagically solve most of your problems. Of course, all these measures are good, but the most important thing is that your team members know what they are doing. If your people do not know the basics, are not able to think and work in a structured way, have poor abstraction skills, do not have enough experience and a solid education, all the measures you have mentioned above will not change much in the way they are working.

comment Are (C) object files created with different compilers binary-compatible?
As far as I can remember, C object files should be compatible with each other as long as they are compiled for the same platform. An object file is just an archive containing loadable binary code with some symbol table that can be used to access each symbol inside the module.
