comment Report test failures “all at once”, or report them one by one
OP, there are two categories of testing (in this particular context). Their tests, and yours. If they haven't even attempted to resolve their bugs due to lack of testing strategy, that's piss poor business on their part. That said, your testing could be considered as user-acceptance testing. It's fine for you to test first, but don't feel any obligation to cater for the incompetency of a technical team of developers who are suppose to have already sorted it.

comment Specify optional parameter names even though not required?
I don't mind opinion, I asked for 'formal'. MSDN may be primarily opinion based, but it's formal enough for me.

comment Specify optional parameter names even though not required?
I hear what you're saying, but you've sort of missed the point of what I'm asking. Assuming a scenario whereby it is most appropriate to use optional parameters (these scenarios do exist), is it ok to name the parameters even though it's unnecessary?

I'd call the likes of the following article 'formal' enough for what I'm after: msdn.microsoft.com/en-gb/library/ff926074.aspx

comment .net Windows app in a web page
If you provide some details of what your app does, exactly, we can suggest a tweaked version of your approach. I think this kind of integration is nothing but a headache.

comment What makes a large and complex software product slow?
Far too subjective. It entirely depends on the system you're talking about.

comment Is equating a variable to a function that takes the same variable bad programming?
How could alterData(a) change a under the covers? It's an int, it is passed by value.

comment SignalR design concept
It will do 2 and 3, for 1 I'd suggest just manually calling it and just keeping SignalR for real-time push updates instead.

How did you want to show off the portfolio? Printed copies for meetings? Or 'on-screen'?

comment A simple approach for data synchronisation
The problem with my approach is that I'm doing many different queries and programmatic processing - is this not the problem? What transactions are being made against the DB on the server? I don't like the sound of sync'ing to a very 'active' server. I'd favour your first approach, and you don't need to worry about whether there are concurrent users sync'ing or not - update the server DB based on the latest date against each record.

You don't see your constant names in intellisense?

comment Where Should I Keep Stored Procedure Names in my Code?
@user2023861 - you're missing the point a bit. I'd end up with a "stored procedure not found" error? That could also happen with consts. - of course, but only once. My argument regarding hard-coded string typos is based purely on maintenance. Enter it and (potentially) make the mistake once, and thereafter you have a verified value to use in confidence.
