comment Coding and testing in the same sprint
"The essential problem is that you have programmers who code but don't test and testers who test but not code.": Huh? Why is this a problem? A programmer should, well, program and a tester should test. Furthermore, you need some minimal feature that is implemented before you can test it: you cannot parallelize two tasks if the output of one task is the input of the other task.

comment Handling the end of sprint cycle between testers and developers
"If the devs are finished coding and there are still tests to write or perform, they should pitch in and help the testers.": Yep, like in an orchestra: if the violins have nothing to do they should take over some of the trumpets part.

comment Client wants source code, but it contains a lot of shared code I reuse with other projects
@Guntram Blohm: You really cannot know in advance. AFAIK rails was developed as the framework for a specific project and, after it was made public, it was widely adopted.

comment Handling the end of sprint cycle between testers and developers
"Is this an OK practice?": What are the alternatives? Since something must be implemented before it is tested, it is obvious that features whose implementation is finished on the last day might not get tested or, if all features are implemented early enough to be tested by the end of the sprint, that some developers might sit idle for some time at the end of the sprint, unless they are allowed to do some preparation work for the next sprint.

comment Is there a performance benefit to using the method reference syntax instead of lambda syntax in Java 8?
.map(_.acceptValue()): If I am not mistaken, this looks very much like the Scala syntax. Maybe you are just trying to use the wrong language.

comment Does path coverage guarantee finding all bugs?
@Deduplicator: Why do you mean there is a hyperbole in the text? It is well-known that tests do not guarantee the absence of bugs, they only make it more likely that some bugs are discovered earlier.

comment Is there a reason to have a bottom type in a programming language?
What is the difference between the type forall a . [a] and the type [a] in Haskell? Aren't type variables already universally quantified in Haskell type expressions?

comment What is the best way to prove that in-code documentation is greater than extensive external documentation?
"External documentation tailored to the developer, who will never look at them, and will rather, look into the code": Depending on the context, developers who never look at the external documentation can be considered very bad developers (unless the documentation itself is very bad).
