comment How would you explain multi threading to a seven year old kid?
I think the only thing I'd add is maybe change "jobs" to "games" or playing with toys or doing chores or homework.

I'd add just one thing - a way to see a bug found before a release is "it could have been found by a customer - this is a win!" - every bug the team finds is a bug the customer doesn't find.

comment Software Developer Interview Question - Fair or Unfair
Adding one more - whether they described the job title accurately or not, chances are good that these questions reflect the reality of what the people they are hiring need to know. Saying, in effect "what you want to know isn't important" suggests the potential new hire doesn't get that this is part of the job.
