comment MVC: Inserting a view from a SubController to its Parent controller
When you are saying a SubView, do you mean a PartialView? What version of MVC are you using?

comment How can I determine how to charge for supporting SharePoint sites and SharePoint development?
Steve Evers- I have edited this to reflect what I meant. I in NO way meant to suggest extortion. I'm sorry I was not clear.

comment Would a programming certificate teach me anything?
I'd say it would teach you things, but not necessarily the things you think it would teach you.

comment How to motivate co-workers to write unit-tests?
The fact that you can prove your changes didn't break something else is a BIG power in my view. The immediate response of working software is useful, too. Unfortunately, some folks will never want to attempt the startup learning. Ironically, that limited startup for immediate gratification is too much in our immediate gratification culture....

comment Are my negative internship experiences representative of the real world?
And code that works, no matter how ugly, will stay in production MUCH longer than the original coders ever believed.

comment Backbone.js, Rails and code duplication
Your answer would be more helpful if you provided more about how this relates to the three bolded questions. I'm guessing you are listing concerns, but this might not immediately be clear if the original poster isn't a native English speaker.

comment I'm doing 90% maintenance and 10% development, is this normal?
+10 for the face to face communication. Many people will just send an email without thinking too much about their request. When you are face to face with them, they realize you are 1) taking them seriously, so they are more likely to take you seriously, 2) trying to determine what you want and why, and 3) probably going to explain why or why not this is a good idea. 4) a short in-person conversation can accomplish WAY more than a gaggle of emails.

comment Determining the right amount of documentation
We use XWiki, specifically for its ability to generate documents in PDF, RTF and HTML. Wicked good.

comment How do I convince my fellow devs to WANT to add comments to source code commits?
+ 365,000 for this. I don't understand why writing a sentence is so "difficult and time consuming" when doing a diff takes LONGER.

comment Best practice for shared files within multiple unit test fixtures
What's most important here? Reuse of files and paths across tests, or just organizing them so they make sense?
