comment What is the Best Way to Incentivize a Team of Developers?
@Lars, I actually agree with you. Even though I used it in my subject line, I still think it's a dumb word.

comment What is the Best Way to Incentivize a Team of Developers?
I do like the idea of tieing incentives to pre-set milestones, as opposed to just having the manager bring things up at performance review time. I always want to know in advance what I'm being judged on.

+1 Spot bonuses are great, especially if they're on a critical project.

comment Bugs vs. Nonexistent Features
That being said, we could start a whole new Q&A thread on what constitutes "reasonable expectations."

comment Bugs vs. Nonexistent Features
That makes sense. A missing feature can be considered a bug if the testers have a reasonable expectation that it should be in the software at that point.

comment UI Testing with Visual Studio 2010 Feature Pack 2
Thanks @Jim, I've been a fan of Telerik's Silverlight controls, but I hadn't looked at their testing products before. I wonder how it compares to the UI tests that Microsoft is providing.

comment What would you change about C# if you could?
I agree that internationalizing is best practice, but for cases like internal development apps, it would be more convenient if I had that ability.

comment Proposal for a new position at work
@Renesis: When I worked for companies that practiced sprints, the scrum master was not a developer and was responsible for assigning tasks and making sure they were completed. What would you call that person under a scrum methodology?

comment Software Bug Bash Tips
Thanks @testerab, great suggestions. My goal at this point in the software development process is not to find every minute issue with the application, I am only interested in finding bugs that prevent the software from functioning properly. I will be using non-development staff for the bug bash, and I would like them to try to go through actual client scenarios for how the software will be used in the field.
