comment Was classical BASIC ever used for commercial software development, and if so, how were limitations overcome?
In the 80's our local colleges computer mainframe got an upgrade from 10mb to 50 mb. Granted the 10mb was only half full but they wanted to have enough space for the forseeable future... Imagine that a hard drive with only 50 mb for about 50-100 users... being over kill.

comment How do you explain agile process tool (like Scrum or Kanban) to a (traditional) project manager?
@DejanLekic - Opinions are not what this Q&A site is designed for. I think this question could work if you explained where you are having trouble communicating the process, and what push back you are getting.

comment I've been told that Exceptions should only be used in exceptional cases. How do I know if my case is exceptional?
Id say that the fact that exception handling is not as high in overhead is not reason to indugle sloppy code, or to neglect to code for expected values and check for nulls

comment How to manage the task of reviewing localized strings by a non-developer?
Yes this is not about full localization this is just about making sure the language is right.
