I'm a developer, but you already knew that.

I love to write great software and work with great developers. I know .NET inside and out, but I also spend quite a bit of time in Java and JavaScript.

I'm always up for learning something new.

comment How to deal with tautology in comments?
This is simply an example of poor API Documentation, not code comments. My C# XML formatting for a property like this would look something like "Gets or Sets a Uri that can be used to access this object's update server."

comment Why the recent shift to removing/omitting semicolons from Javascript?
I would say that going through a semi-large, working, codebase and removing semicolons doesn't decrease typing. It will probably be awhile before reaping the ROI there. The ONLY reason here is preference and an appreciation for minimalism.

comment Why is verbosity bad for a programming language?
@EricLippert, I believe P.SE is a perfect place to query a large number of "complaining" developers.

comment How should code “Goal Tending” be handled by a Development Manager?
Brilliant answer and thanks for the insight. I think a bringing copy of this question and a humble attitude to my manager might convince him that code reviews would be beneficial to the team and will reduce the need for "goal tending".

Thanks for the comments and answers so far. The first step to solving a problem is admitting you have a problem. I've provided some updates to provide some additional background.

comment Company wants to write custom project management tool, rather than use third party product
+1 for the reality check and the mention of cashflow problems. Every development manager seems to think their product, project, development approach is a unique flower and that an external tool would be vastly inferior because it would require them to slightly bend their process. At my job we reimplemented 90% of the following tools at an extreme (multi-year) cost: SharePoint, Maven, Bugzilla because of very minor disagreeances on how they operated. Duh.

comment Is code pruning related to obfuscation?
To the commentors and editors, thanks for your input. After some thought I've update the question to be more generic and more in the spirit of Programmers.SE.
