Gift Peddie's good post brings up a real sore spot with me... why does everyone think that the Agile Manifesto says "No
Documentation" whatsoever? Why does everyone think that if you document code (especially embedded documentation) that you're a sissy of some sort? Why does everyone think that having a simple implementation plan in black and white is somehow against the ability to move quickly?
IT managers of the world... wake up. Insist on proper embedded documentation so it never gets separated from the code and then give people time to do it right. Then insist on code reviews and make them part of everyone's job using pay reviews as enforcement. If you lose a couple of programmers because of it, good... they needed to be replaced anyway.
And remember... "If you want it real bad, you'll probably get it that way." ;-)

First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code: Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair
