comment Should the commit history be used to convey critical information to developers?
I like the email group idea. Too many places I've worked rely on individual addresses and things are not passed on to new members.

comment Convincing Management to Invest in Scrum Master Certification for Developers
You make is sound like Scrum was developed for the sake of a process and not as a way to benefit those trying to be more agile. Do it yourself agile, is like writing code from scratch when there are capable frameworks or plugins that do the same thing.

comment Should temporary code be put under version control and how?
@Vorac - It's the "rarely clash" code you have to worry about. If there is any shared code/module that gets updated, you need to determine if it should be updated in the temp code.

comment In general, should an organization adopt a single methodology or decide on a per-project basis?
@svidgen - I'm not sure this question has a single answer, but more of things to consider when finding a solution for a particular company. You're more inclined to find developers who are more agile or waterfall than any particular project. It is better if the entire organization is on the same page regardless of methodology. What percentage of waterfall projects assumed they would never, ever change the specs and did?

comment can non-programing fizzbuzz work?
You want to hire a programmer, but not take the time to watch him program? That would be a waste of time.

comment What constitutes a good Database System(Java / SQL related)
No idea what the Psychology Dept. is doing with these data, but make sure there aren't security issues due to patient/subject information. This is not a good project for a first time developer (no offense to your skills) and could literally be messing with people's lives.

Will this temporary code need to be updated from the original project during its temporary usage period?

comment How should I remember what I was doing and why on a project 3 months back?
Stakeholders assume they're paying a professional developer who is commenting & documenting code so he (at a later time) or someone else (at any time) can take over the project. Of course their assumption is wrong most of the time.

comment Word for author, of an add, edit, or delete?
Having some of this occur in your app code and some in the database is more confusing than what you're naming the fields.

comment Should I leave my job and self learn for a few months?
If you want a better job, you're going to have to prove you can work full-time and learn new things. School days are over and there are no summers off. Show you have the horsepower to learn on the job, at nights, weekends, etc.

comment Should Joel Test #3 be updated to require Continuous Integration?
It would be great to turn-up the criteria on each test item, but most places can't pass it the way it is.
