comment Is there a general pattern that could be used to describe Data Migration?
Yes, indeed in the specific case it will be more like an ETL process. I was interested on the "documentation" perspective, if possible in a general way. However +1 for the links!

comment Is there a general pattern that could be used to describe Data Migration?
Thanks SnOrfus I will have a look at it, surely will help. However I am more interested at the documentation part, something like UML Use Cases and Class Diagram are almost a "must" for the description of the code. I was wondering whether there is something similar also for what concers data migration that is crucial to be included in its documentation.

comment a better approach for reviewing performance of developers?
The timeframe to achieve them is proportional to the complexity of the task. However I always try to split new releases in a subset of smaller tasks, usually an achievement every week (without documentation). This is also a good way to evaluate how developer reacts under stress: mainly with new hired people I assign them relative hard tasks in only a week in order to see how they face the challange and refer (or not) to me if they will not be able to achieve the milestone assigned.

comment How do I make web-application development less frustrating?
+1) That is the same approach we used also in our team. Web Development has several diffrences compared with desktop applications. But in general a develop and test criterium is the one that let you better find potential errors in the new code.

comment What is the limit to the number of a class methods?
My class "Note" is not a utility class. It represents a business object (a note that can add comments and description to a document). However I agree with ironcode about the danger of "utility" classes. They come in help when we are in hurry with our delivery deadlines, but I think there is often a better solution/design for them.

comment I have a hard time explaining what I learn
@ Thorbjørn: +1 totally agree! Just making exercise in your weknesses you can improve them. Writing here is indeed a very good practice.

Exactly...probably to make concepts clearer for the most and to enlarge the potential basis of buyers too...

comment What is the limit to the number of a class methods?
I agree, the number of 15 was just an approximation derived from reading those designing books (as "Code Complete" by Steven McConnell, as example). Indeed String class has a miriad of methods and all realted to the same entity.
