comment What is language-agnosticism and why is it called that way?
BPMN certainly is not language-agnostic, because it models processes. There are programming languages where you define merely the precondition and the desired result and the process unfolds implicitly, e.g. Prolog. Even Haskell and BPMN don't go together particularly well, because of Haskell's lazy evaluation strategy that causes things to not happen according to some imperatively defined order of things.

comment Leaving intentional bugs in code for testers to find
@Jay Classes are for education, not training. Your analogy is also off in that what is being suggested is the exact opposite of not making it count when a tester finds a "fake" bug. If anything, the actual risk is that testers will (consciously or not) adapt their behavior to "score" on the fake bugs and become less effective at their task despite all indicators suggesting the opposite. Which is why I stressed that this mustn't be the only indicator. But if someone can get it to improve their self-evaluation, then great.

comment Is equating a variable to a function that takes the same variable bad programming?
@JᴀʏMᴇᴇ In both PHP and C# the parameter could be passed by reference if that is how alterData defines it.

comment Where to describe architectural problems?
I don't get it. You described the architecture based on the implementation, to then discover that the implementation does not conform to the description. Is it not then your description which is flawed?

comment Managers X Motivation
@RonWertlen It was a mix of both. Some behaviors I could imitate, others I'd have to compensate. But in both cases, I definitely learned a lot working with him.
