comment How big are the teams where you have worked?
@rwong I agree with you. In this case though, the logistics of the bigger picture don't leave the PM with as much time as he would like to devote to the project.

comment How big are the teams where you have worked?
Great answer and exactly the info I was looking for. Things on the technical side are actually going ok right now because I have a wonderful team. If things were otherwise and I couldn't trust them to do the right thing, I would certainly be under water. It was our CTO that looked at the new staff list and started the discussion about splitting the team because it's much larger than we typically have at the company.

comment How can I estimate the value of an open-source project?
That is a very nice web site. I was surprised, but quite happy, to find the project I'm estimating already in Ohloh. The cost came out to $2,824,979 by their estimation method. Seeing all the other stats they have collected on the project was really interesting too.

This is exactly what I was looking for. I ran SLOCCount on the source tree and it popped out a number. Bonus points for being backed up by research too!

comment Does giving a developer a slower development machine result in faster/more efficient code?
I like the idea of using a KVM with an old PC for testing. Depending on the project though it might be cumbersom for the devs to install the latest builds on the slow machine each time they come up with a new build.
