comment What is the role of the lead developer in an agile team?
Can you add some clarification to what you mean by, "Handing out decisions by edict is a terrible way for any development team to run"? I agree with the rest of your post but I only agree with the mentioned statement in certain ways but not others. For example, how would it be decided to use SOA over a database tier? Wouldn't that have been an edict or wouldn't someone have to have the final say? I ask because I am a team lead and ran into this very situation. I made a call not to use SOA based on business need. There just isn't enough time to allow all developers to discuss/argue every point.

comment How can I be an agent of change amongst old coders?
It may have sounded like a rant but I felt I needed to give background information so others could understand the context. The very question in there specifically asks: How do I become an agent of change? My hopes were that others with similar experiences might suggest how they have overcome these obstacles and the best path. Could it be getting buy-ins, going rogue w/ my own project analysis, etc. This is not necessarily a general job question as I am specifically a programmer looking to make changes to poor programming practices in an I.T. department. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

I don't have an example specifically for MVC but this is a good explanation: codeproject.com/Articles/29271/…

Bye the way, to clarify, I'm using MVVM and I pass my BLL service getter into my ViewModel class because we have different business logic depending on the customer.

Yes, I meant model view viewmodel. Thank You. Not to be rude, does it matter to the context of my question?
