comment What is the difference between requirements and specifications?
@Bryan'BJ'Hoffpauir I’m sure there are cases where documents are labeled specifications and have no requirements in them, but I would contend those that is a misuse of the term. A specification is a requirements document  —  end of story. It’s a widely accepted term of art across more fields that aerospace and defense and is unassailable within systems engineering, which is the discipline responsible for requirements and verification. Even in the case you describe the term applies: the BRD is a spec, the tech spec sounds like one too, just with different types of requirements.

comment How does unit testing work?
And if the Ruby code does have a bug that you don't know about that's not in your new code and your code fails a unit test based on the Ruby outputs, then the investigation into why it failed will ultimately vindicate you and result in the latent Ruby bug being found. So that's pretty cool.
