comment How do you get complete testing/QA in a git/hg flow development process?
Most people writing answers like this only work with web or desktop/mobile apps which do not have meaningful interfaces with the physical world. When you work with embedded hardware, such as cars, doing physical tests are incredibly critical.

comment How do you get complete testing/QA in a git/hg flow development process?
Everything testers do manually can be done once and then automated <-- for some applications, sure. But there are plenty of situations at my current company where it is considerably cheaper and more effective to have manual testing where writing automatic integration/tests is obscenely expensive...

comment How can I implement scrum if management won't commit resources?
You have a hammer (scrum). Your problems require a screwdriver and a tape measure (insufficient resources and non-dedicated resources). You can't just use a hammer to measure things and screw stuff in, you need to find a screwdriver and tape measure. This requires solving those core problems -- not patching work arounds constantly.

comment How to handle initial state in an event-driven architecture?
@ratchetfreak there are a lot of possibilities for this sort of thing. Perhaps a switch can handle that. There are a lot of other system events which are not handled that simply.
