Freelance developer for the last six years, I'm specializing myself in quality and productivity for the last two years. I spent the last year working in a Dilbertesque company, watching people doing everything they can to make projects fail.

For a long time, I worked with Microsoft technologies, but recently started to build Linux-based DevOps infrastructure—an excellent way to learn lots of new things.

I'm mostly active on Programmers.SE, but try to participate on other sites as well.

comment Programming for future use of interfaces
@JeroenVannevel: certainly, but that's very speculative. From my experience, most features I believed would certainly be implemented were either cancelled or delayed forever. This includes features which were originally highlighted as very important by the stakeholders.

revised Is this a good practice or not?
Removed useless empty comments. Improved formatting. Corrected uppercase/lowercase.

comment Designing database related methods, which is better to return: true/false or row affected?
@PTwr: so to cope with the fact that the method is returning too much information, you suggest creating an overload? This doesn't seem right. As for "zero is false, non-zero is true", this is not the point of my comment, and is a bad practice in some languages.

comment Designing database related methods, which is better to return: true/false or row affected?
-1 because of the reason you gave. Giving additional information is not always a good idea. Often, better design would led to communicating to the caller just what it needs, and nothing more.

comment How to manage a relatively large one-man project?
Why a downvote? If every question here was written with such care as this one, Programmers.SE would be a better place. Aside being a duplicate, I can't see anything wrong with it.

comment How to do documentation for code and why is software (often) poorly documented?
@SJuan76: Indeed. Visual Studio can even treat the lack of comments as a compile-time error. I edited my answer to add a note about that.
