comment When is code “legacy”?
The problem with a reasonably sized code-base without automated regression tests (unit tests), is that when you start to modify it, you can easily introduce reggressive bugs. That means it's hard to move the code forward and so it tends towards "legacy". Still, I agree that Feathers "definition" appears to be a dogmatic and propaganda-like promotion of unit testing. Hence I marked up the comment by @JerryCoffin

comment 'Recommended' file length and line widths
Your example is incongruent with the question. Your question asks about lines per file and your example is characters per line.

comment As a C# developer, would you learn Java to develop for Android or use MonoDroid instead?
Still, the only code that is re-usable is the business logic, not the UI code or code that interacts with the phone hardware. See I have a MonoTouch or WindowsPhone 7 application, can I just rebuild it with Mono for Android and target Android? on the MonoDroid FAQ.

@qes The question is about MonoDroid, not MonoTouch. Java is arguably closer to C# than Objective C, certainly in syntax. ironcode's point is more about 'native' development vs development through an intermediate layer, than about platform battles (or which platform is more efficient and for whom). It is a valid point to consider.

comment MonoTouch vs Objective-C for iPhone/iPod/iPad development
I like the reminder that MonoTouch will involve at least some learning even if you are a seasoned .NET dev. I'm also looking at an iOS app connecting to SQL Server / .net back end. Can you point me to anything that worked for you?
