comment What does mathematics have to do with programming?
I think that the math is just the domain knowlage needed for your program, in the same way that understanding finance is important for Excel developers.

comment Is turning UI (or other) features on and off based on dates-a code smell?
Or maybe you want to have a "play jingle bells" button on Christmas day. You may not want to have to deploy this every christmas.

comment The importance of duplicate code removal
Checking that the two things are exactly the same can also be tricky. It is easy to glance at two things and assume they are the same even when they are not.

comment How do you track what you and your team are working on day-to-day?
RE: "If they don't have problems all week? Problem." -- It may just be too that you arn't the right person to solve the problem. Maybe another dev, the internet or something else is already working to remove the impediment.

comment Is it okay to not completely understand code functionality?
One thing you may want to add to your answer is "How long" something takes. This can be an important piece of info that could fit into the what or how the way that you presented it. +1

comment Do SAS coding “best practices” exist?
What is SAS in this context? Doesn't seem like it is Software as a Service. Searching for SAS returns en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SAS_(disambiguation)lots of results.

comment How do I stress the importance of unit tests to my manager
@Aesthete -- is it a good idea to just rely on the users testing the features? -- This isn't a technical decision, this is a business decision. It depends whether rapid development is more important than quality. What are the competitors like? Is it an internal app? Is there a hard release date that must be met regardless of how buggy the software is, etc.

comment Is there a licence that let people see my code but not use it?
Just out of curiosity. Wouldn't all rights reserved also mean that he isn't granting the right to play the game? Just curious on how that would work.
