..does the rest of the team know of your mandate? Is the chief-architect actively supporting those changes? Can you explain how the new situation will be an improvement?


Well, maintenance and care is precisely what's lacking in the current product which has been built in an adhoc way over the years in every which way by different types of developers. Its a maintenance nightmare by their own admission, so it hasn't "clearly worked" but "somehow worked" for them.

The team working on this rewrite is only 3-4 people (for now) me, another senior dev, a product manager and a lead dev who's the only person who's worked on the old product and knows a lot more of it, rest of us all are new hires. During my interview with the lead dev and the director it was made amply clear that they lack experience in Azure, Scrum, TDD and they are looking for someone with new ideas and who can "rock the boat". Having worked on rewrites before in similar environments where I wasn't just a developer who got handed down specs but was actively contributing to the architecture and design of the product (i.e. senior dev), I fit the bill. We discussed at length about various architecture and design options available to realise the product vision during the interview and again during my casual visits to their offices until I formally joined.

So I would say, the team was fairly aware of my mandate, but I guess they are not budging on the comments issue so my best strategy is write clean code and comment only where I must and then butt heads if that becomes an issue. Moving on is always an option if there is no clear resolution because I am not going to just accept it simply because the lead dev says so. If I didn't know any better myself, I would accept but I do know better.
