comment Scrum - how to carry over a partially complete User Story to the next Sprint without skewing the backlog
It may alter the definition of done depending on how you define done and how you go about closing it. If you are early enough in a design that the portion you would be demonstrating has no real-world environment for it to tie into I don't find the difference between signing off on work that is unproven and signing off on work that is only proven by a throwaway test harness a particularly dangerous difference. If you are right up to a release or deploy for a live product this would be different.

comment Drawbacks of using pure html in webforms?
AJAX = asynchronous JavaScript and XML, my point was in this case the XML would be needless overhead in a fresh start when so many things support json these days - in the context he is describing I assumed he was discussing the MS AJAX bits which don't switch to AJAJ nicely Some libraries do both nicely, the webforms ones don't in my opinion, and the earlier ones don't at all.

Under what circumstances, and how often do these get changed? How do you currently deal with the differences in cache expiration over time?

comment I failed FizzBuzz, would you hire me?
I really don't want to hire someone that spends a lot of time analyzing stuff that the compiler or a quick execution can show you where you failed. More importantly, he didn't write something god awful like a 100 case switch statement. I can help someone code better, but I usually find it hopeless to try and teach someone how to think about the problem correctly.
