comment How do bug reports factor in to a sprint?
@MarkIngram - Perhaps it does. In that case you need to have something like option 1. Explicitly schedule bug fixes as part of each sprint but allow slack to cope with blocking issues.

@MegaMind I'd use a class for preference, but you could use a structure quite happily.

comment A little code to allow word substitution depending on user
This is an outline of the principles you need to do the localisation. If you want specific coding help then you might be better off asking on Stack Overflow - but don't forget to show some research and preferably code that you've tried.

comment Creating my own PHP framework
Sorry, but this is not a constructive question. There are only three reasons why you should write your own framework. 1. You are learning, 2. You are not allowed to use them or 3. The existing ones don't have the functionality you need. Though I would seriously consider that what you want to do isn't really useful if that's the case.

@Philip - I think we're splitting hairs here.

comment Should the number of developers be considered when estimating a task?
@Philip - refactoring is a complex task not a simple one. There are two many knock on effects. It will probably take the experienced developer less time because he's aware of these issues and can be proactive in dealing with them rather than reactive like the less experienced developer would be.

comment keeping connection open all time in sql
You need to be running the application as a service that's independent of login. However, you should really be looking at running it on a proper server. What happens when your laptop has to be shut down completely or moves out of range of a network?

comment How Visual Studio could help to avoid duplicating code?
Do you mean that people are adding the duplicate functionality to a class? The solution isn't technical but one of education. People should double check and if you institute code reviews you stand a greater chance of spotting duplicate code.

@user1741807 - You'll could (indeed should) use a separate connection for the login and the actual data access.

comment What are programmers made to do in spare time in jobs?
@jwenting - Well training should come under "indirectly bringing the company money" - as in making sure your employees are still competent to do their job in 5 years time.

That is still work related. You won't be playing games or hiking etc.

comment What are programmers made to do in spare time in jobs?
You are working on a false premise. A developer working for a software company is just like a mechanic working for a car repair shop. If they aren't doing something that brings the company money (directly or indirectly) they are costing the company. If they have spare time then their management isn't doing their job properly
