comment Is there any benefit to just artificially reducing WIP in a Kanban system?
"Assigned to" and "in progress" should be different states, no? This doesn't seem like a real kanban problem, just one with your ticketing system.

I dont understand the question. The developer can surely only work on one thing at a time?

comment What are the advantages and disadvantages of splitting teams by architecture tier rather than by product?
Removed references to Agile as doesn't have anything to do with Agile really. Certainly, methodologies like Scrum are about developing products. Scrum does not value component teams where value can not be delivered to customer without integration costs. If you're interested in Agile stuff you should make your question more specific to what Agile methods recommend

comment What is the Loopback Pattern?
Not sure I'd agree that this is a case of a Null object pattern. Null doesnt do anything, the quote from the OP clearly stated that this is actually the local system doing something.

comment What is the Loopback Pattern?
Is this even a pattern? You can talk to local objects using OO style and remote objects using the Proxy pattern. This is an absence of a proxy and just normal OO. It looks like the original blog post was talking about Mocking. I'm assuming this is about creating a local mock of an external service.

comment How to reuse spaghetti code
What do you mean, "spaghetti code"? It sounds a bit subjective. This problem sounds too broad/opinion based. There are entire books on this subject, for example, "Working Effectively with Legacy Code"
