comment Are code reviews necessary for junior developers?
@tia -- I understand the need to rush, but our early-investment has always made a positive ROI. Inevitably not doing an early code-review lets issues through that delay our ship-dates and result in other features being cut to address the features we thought were done.

comment Are code reviews necessary for junior developers?
@Gratzy -- I absolutely swear by it; normally it adds ~%10 to the dev-cycle; a small investment for how much we catch early on.

comment Are code reviews necessary for junior developers?
I couldn't disagree more. Every line of code should go through at least 2x reviews... the original developer should review absolutely every line-change prior to commiting them, and at least one other developer should perform a peer-review as follow-up. Very rarely does code make it through a review without at least 1 good question being raised; peer reviews also increase awareness between team-members of what--and how--others are completing their assignments.

comment Hard-copy approaches to time tracking
It's off to a good start, but one shortcoming is that I still have to track my start/end times to tally them in the checkboxes. I'll be continuing with it to see if I improve--but I've already caught myself starting a few tasks and forgetting when I started them

comment What should a tester (Quality Assurance) person do on a scrum team?
A good position to place them! It keeps them up-to-date on what's happening, and they can be involved in as many side-conversations as needed to ensure they're aware of the details as they evolve.

@David -- I agree entirely, but have yet to find a manager who enables me to single-task

printed and glued into my handy-dandy notebook; with some small customizations this could be perfect--we'll see how it serves over a few days

comment Alternatives to time tracking methodologies
A very good and comprehensive approach. The hard part about getting the ball rolling on these approaches is getting developers to understand it's ok for their estimates to be off--so getting them to understand what is done with their estimates and getting them to trust that honest inaccuracies aren't held against them is a critical first-step

comment Hard-copy approaches to time tracking
that very well could be EXACTLY what I need. Multiple tasks tracked in hardcopy with a simple-enough way to switch!!!

very nice! I like the Timex still on the stand :D My only concern would be that, in my office, most things that size are made of foam and get thrown at other people :)
