Via Google translate for me:

I do not entirely agree with your exposition :) I think when someone programs a large part of the code of an application or feature they must take responsibility for it, and you can ask with a "Why did you do it like this?" Perfectly without having to be aggressive in the exhibition.

I like to be direct in my questions, but that's not why I'm going to be aggressive in any way, neither try nor desire it. I like people to be responsible for their code, just as I do mine and the team work team. I ask "Why did you do it like this?" Just as I say "I did it for this reason".

Writing code is different from the focus or analysis, where it may be more of a "Why did we do it like this?" Since it is very likely to come to that point after a debate on various bands.

I do not like rodeos: P

I see your point, but still think this is a good guideline for us. I think production code quickly gets swallowed up into the codebase and the longer it's there, the less the writer of it has a relationship with the current context. As the app and the users evolve around the block of code an individual wrote, the context in which they wrote the code begins to apply less and less, to the point where the answer is "because things were different back then". As context is muddied, so is ownership.

As I said, it's a small thing, and I think it will help us. I think it's generalizable, but is mostly just food for thought.


I understand you perfectly.

I do not want on any way to confront or blame anyone, only to understand and correct what is happening. We are a team, and we work as a team, but code is written by persons. If I need help with the code that I'm writting, I don't say: "Please, can you help me with this piece of our code?"

Anyway, in case of doubt, on minimal doubt, about who written the code, the code is our :)

I think that Richard explained my view best as me.

Best regards and sorry my "alien" english :)
