comment What is the most effective way to add functionality to unfamiliar, structurally unsound code?
Basically you're suggesting that they reason through the code and fully understand it and hope for the best?

comment A simple ways to improve the release quality in RAD environment
It'll pay off right away because you'll have to start with adding asserts/condition-checking in each release for the new features/bug-fixes. It'd be a huge task to add asserts to the whole project in one go ;p

comment Does using new techniques hurt productivity?
I think it depends on the type of "new" that you're exploring. I've explored programming concepts from the 60s, 70s, 80s and they all seem new since few programmers actually look up the history of the field.

comment What programming language to choose for this XML and data processing task?
It's not much of a data point; it's a Microsoft tool and we don't know the platform being used, and we don't know exactly wtf using LinQtoXML entails. Is it a new programming language?

comment Is there a correlation between complexity and reachability?
Could you clarify (perhaps with a link) what exactly these metrics are?

comment What are good techniques for keeping your place in code?
seems similar to what you can do in Squeak and other Smalltalks where you open new code browsing windows and you can navigate to whatever methods/classes you want in them.

comment Difference between defect and bug in testing
Defects is the proper term. How many programs are released with bugs in them and we all accept that? But how many programs are released with defects? We wouldn't accept that because the term implies a greater severity and we know that it's our own fault for the error, rather than a bug where we can blame the weather or the time of day.
