comment Doesn't “if (0 == value) …” do more harm than good?
with all respect, when you've spent a late night (or two) and find the source (in C++ code) is a = instead of ==, it would carry some weight.

comment I don't know C. And why should I learn it?
"hopefully an appreciation of the cost involved in working in that higher level language" - wish I could up-vote this multiple times for this sentence. Fantastic answer.

comment One-week release cycle: how do I make this feasible?
if I may add my own comments to @Wonko's great answer... Our company spent several years doing things similar to the OP. Growing from 6 or devs to 16. About 2 years ago, we decided to go Agile. We hired a Sr. Dev w/ Agile experience, switched 2 week iterations, implemented continuous integration, etc... We're still far from a textbook shop and it's been bumpy from time to time but we've really cut down the context switching, which is a huge win.
