comment calculating the average of a value over a month
@GlenH7 How is this about implementation? He clearly needs design help and doesn't understand the problem well enough to implement anything.

comment Whose responsibility is it to create the interface and/or acceptance testing? Developer or QA?
if your QA department consists of people with no programming knowledge, it won't make sense to give them the task to write automated tests So if your QA department is composed of people who have no right to consider themselves a true QA department? How could you claim to do QA and not do automated testing?

comment Adding quirks from an old system to a new system because that's what people are used to - a term for this?
@Snowman Going through this pain currently, except I am getting quirk parity from both users and the COBOL programmers who are involved as technical experts.

comment When do you change your major/minor/patch version number?
I reopened the question as it is not a "how" question but instead a "when" question. It is still very similar to the previous marked duplicate however and may be closed again.

comment Algorithm for figuring out the enemy flag's location in Stratego
Just to be clear, this question is really on topic at both sites. They are merely stating you might get a more targeted or specific answer at GameDev where you might get a larger audience to your question here. Algorithms of all kinds are on topic here.

comment Is it acceptable to ask management for pseudo code?
Not really answering the question but I sometimes find that when business requirements are not clear because the developer is new to an industry or business then sometimes a glossary section will help that defines terms, abbreviations and gives cliff notes for complicated processes that can help provide context. Many times I am surprised how much this alone helps me understand complicated requirements.

That is perfect. I guess all it takes is a simple sentence.
