comment Why are /// comment blocks important?
@John - strange, I could have sworn that I read something else altogether when I wrote that comment. Because your second paragraph is exactly what I said elsewhere in this thread. So, I must have rocks in my head for writing that comment. Yes, I agree with that.

comment “How to code better” training
Actually, the main reason for automatic grading is to make it scalable. As we are growing, we hire more and more people, and the people who are best at mentoring roles are usually fairly busy in projects. So, the challenge is to create something that can replace these people (probably too big a problem to solve)...

Agreed. This is the same thing that I have found. I did find codility, but its not exactly what we need. It could be a combination of these frameworks. Thanks for your answer.

comment “How to code better” training
Actually, we do recruit from some of the best universities. However, the talent that comes in (while good) is still very raw and individualized. The challenge is to make sure that there is a consistent level of good quality across the board. And we have been able to achieve this till now through mentor programs, code reviews, etc. - but now, we are searching for a process which we can scale... maybe the answer is that its not possible...

comment Do you prefer conciseness or readability in your code?
I think the second version is more readable.

And I think not only from an Intellisense perspective, from an automatic documentation generation perspective as well, xml comments are useful. But as with all comments, this only makes senses if the comments themselves are useful, and are adding to the self documented code.

Not sure I agree with John. With this logic, none of the .net framework methods should get any Intellisense help.
