comment Automated unit testing, integration testing or acceptance testing
This is yet another example of closing a question that was perfectly fine on this site when it was asked three years ago! It is really annoying to contribute to a community where the rules change and you just throw out all old stuff!

comment How do you make a manager understand Agile?
Nothing wrong with a flowchart to illustrate how an algorithm works, can be much easier to read than pseudo code.

comment Is it plausible to use a filesystem-based configuration format rather than an INI file?
This is like how the linux kernel exposes configuration and information in the /sys pseudo-filesystem.

comment Using assembly to write to a file
Perhaps write to something else than a disk? Like a in-memory ring-buffer?

comment Most secure method of asynchronous exchange of randomized loot in a strictly offline ARPG
My first instinct is to tell you to look at BitCoin, specifically how the BitCoin block chain works. (en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Block_chain)

comment How do I prove or disprove “god” objects are wrong?
+1 for "working code trumps any arguments about theory or good design." Something we often forget in our quest for perfect code.

comment How should I implement a command processing application?
I really like this question. Looking forward to see what designs people suggest. Are you specifically looking for object oriented design (you mention command pattern, which is an OO pattern)?

comment Is it possible (and practical) to search a string for arbitrary-length repeating patterns?
I guess an autocorrelation + a fourier transform could tell you if there are repeating patterns of similarity, and at which frequency.

In signal processing terms, what you want to perform is called an autocorrelation. It allows you to determine if there are similarity in a signal with itself, at different times. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autocorrelation for more information. :)

comment Is embedded programming closer to electrical engineering or software development?
Exactly, embedded developers here, the industry needs more cs people here, as software is getting much more complicated, we are really bad at good software quality practices.

comment Way in over my head! (Dealing with better programmers)
Actually, you could also look at it this way. You now have the opportunity to really learn a lot. Just ask when you don't know something, the worst think you can do is pretend that you understand.

comment Are small amounts of functional programming understandable by non-FP people?
+1 for "He googles for the Python documentation and knows how it works five minutes later. Otherwise, he shouldn't be programming in Python."

comment What is expected of me as a recent graduate?
+1 for the advice about joting down the acronyms you hear, and offering them to new hires. The old guys at you place, doesn't even recognize the acronyms they use as acronyms anymore. You will be highly appreciated for writing an acronym list for them.

comment How relaxed (or not) should a sprint be?
Such that you are constantly working under pressure? That sounds like a lovely working environment.

comment How relaxed (or not) should a sprint be?
So you don't have a fixed length of the sprint, you start the new one when the old is done?

So if you rarely miss a deadline, you will naturally often not have anything to do at the end of the sprint. What do you do then, take new items in or just take the time off? :)

@Oded: Please do not close, this is one of the more interesting questions for some time here.

comment Best practices for App Idea ownership and shares
Everybody thinks their own ideas are great, executing on your ideas and making something real is the hard part, and the part which has real value.

comment Do I have to deliver my utility and helper code to clients?
You can protect your source-code by distributing only jars (perhaps even obfuscated ones.) Protecting the usage of the jars you distribute is done via licenses, you own the library and you set the terms on which your client can use the library. At this point you probably needs to involve a lawyer though.
