that ignores future costs created by sketchy quality

comment How to Code Faster (Without Sacrificing Quality)
I dislike this answer because it can be too easily taken the wrong way, just like "throwaway prototypes" never really seem to be thrown away.

comment how to introduce a culture of quality into the work environment?
would the question be less broad if I asked about how to counteract the bad attitude towards quality?

comment Sprint pressure causes quality issues?
There's also unaccounted for tasks that don't go into the project management tool or aren't written down anywhere (babysitting server deployments, fixing 3 bugs that were discovered in order to fix the one bug that's been assigned to you, doing research, creating a prototype, etc.)

comment How to stop / avoid Over Time on a Scrum Team?
Exactly. If you're using a tool like JIRA and estimating the hours of a task, you can see the number of hours of work your team can realistically accomplish.

comment Scrum Daily meeting: Punctuality over Full team presence?
except that in the real world the team doesn't always take responsibility and it's a manager or half-manager who takes control of the meetings and forces them and enforces the rules.

comment Can I use GPL libraries temporarily for prototyping and make the future code closed source?
@Deduplicator if they're separate applications that's not enough, they have to be treated as a separate code base, you're right. Kinda like what Twitter does with Bootstrap and what Facebook does with all its libraries. Non-core open source with core proprietary code.

comment What should we do to make Morning Standup meetting better and effective
In terms of the meeting time I would even say let the developers decide on it. Instead of "10am" or "9:30am", make it "before lunch" so that it covers anyone who's supposedly "late", it would give everyone enough time to review what they did and what they're working on.

comment What should we do to make Morning Standup meetting better and effective
I would even say rotate who "leads" the meeting. I've seen tech leads who are half-management who act like management and just dominate the meeting and turn it into a mandatory status meeting which the whole team hates.

DokuWiki is great, very easy to setup and it includes LDAP support if you're working within an Enterprise.

comment Breaking dependencies on remote APIs
@mgw854 I'm already mocking things out for unit tests, I'm mainly wondering if I should have mocks when I'm manually testing frontend-related changes.
