comment Overcoming slow problem solving due to increased knowledge of what might go wrong
@Neil apologies, I did not intend it as a dig at you, i merely used it as an opportunity to express my views on what the OP should do that just happened to fit in with your comment

comment Overcoming slow problem solving due to increased knowledge of what might go wrong
@Neil nothing can be bug free. There will always be a issue, they just get smaller, or more complex. Ideally the OP should find a mark where he is completing fast enough and leaving few enough bugs to be happy with his quality, and keep the client happy with cost and time

comment 65.000.000.000 tests to run
There is a phrase that goes around 'Testing the water' by which you dip a toe or a finger into the water to see if it is too hot or too cold, before you fully submerge yourself. Testing in this case should take the same approach, don't throw yourself into the ocean, dip in a toe and write a much smaller set of tests which test the important logical paths. If you test every permeatation you may aswell not write an application and instead hardcode every input and output

comment I am incompetent; how can I fix it?
@Lundin sure, we will just ignore the fact that it can be used for websites, web services, windows phone programming, windows surface programming, hell there is even a smart watch that you can program apps for with c#, not to mention that with the xna framework it also sits on xbox's too.

comment Emphasize Some Comments - but not Dirty the Code
I hate this, really breaks up the flow of the code, but on the other hand it does do a good job of getting attention. Though im more worried why something as important as changing that isn't covered by a restrictive process but instead by some text that is easy to ignore

comment Really bad example projects that use sonar
Just a note, if you cant find any with bad enough metrics, maybe it isnt as good as you are convinced it is? Are you sure you dont just have wildly high expectations of the improvements this will bring?

comment Programming Practice/Test Contest?
The slowest programmer isnt the weakest link. The weakest link is the programmer who always makes mistakes, refuses to correct them, and refuses to accept any other viewpoints or work as a team in general

comment How to save useful code snippets?
Language and IDE would be useful to know here. As any tool could only interface specifically with that environment.
