If you have any questions about the moderation on Programmers, please post a question on meta or chat. Any off site attempts at communication about site matters will be ignored.

I've been a developer for over 30 years in one form or another. I learnt Pascal at University and my first job was programming in Fortran 66. I've since moved to C# & .NET via Ada, C and C++.

Over the years I've worked for companies of all sizes from 3 person startups to multi-national organisations with 1000's of employees. I've also worked at all levels from junior programmer to team lead/technical architect and one stint as a manager. I've seen various development methodologies from classic waterfall to Scrum implemented and used with varying degrees of success.

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's (possibly) an implementation issue and has already been asked on Stack Overflow - stackoverflow.com/questions/29275090/…
