I'm a software engineer based in Glasgow, Scotland mostly writing software in C# and a little Java.


I'm interested in a variety of topics from best practice and coding standards and UI to nitty gritty programming details.

Our organization excels at creating single points of failure which is something I'd like to minimize. I'd also like to enhance the communication between the team members because at the moment it's non existent, which hasn't been good for morale.

We can't ditch .Net completely sadly as some of the things we integrate with only have a .Net interface and there are some things that are easier to do in .Net (Mainly windows forms apps)

Ideally I'd like to have it so that we don't have just one person working on a task. I think it's dangerous. My idea was to assign at least two people per project have them break it up into tasks and then have them responsible for taking up smaller tasks. We currently have a problem where if a team member goes on holiday the project has to go on hiatus because no one else knows what is happening.
