comment What exactly is copyrighted, the text of the code itself, or the design?
A nice solution might be to release your personal project as bsd-style open source, and then ask your employer if you could use it as backend (since it already contains part of the functionality you would have to reimplement in work-time).

comment My algorithm that extracts the largest box that can be made from smaller boxes, is too slow
Full nodes can be merged in the sense that all 8 children can become part of a single larger box. This larger box will not have to be split later on, but it might be merged. The hierarchy allows you to quickly merge lots of boxes, completely filled nodes allow you to jump up a level without further testing.

comment Git repo management for product with several independent modules
You should package the dependencies as NuGet packages, and use those instead of git-submodule or git-subtree-style inclusions.

comment Appropriate developer permissions on a dev server?
These days it's probably easiest to set up a VM with exactly what you need and hand the VM to your IT.

comment Object Oriented Analysis and Design workflow for developer working alone
I would suggest you write a prototype of the main classes before writing any kind of diagram that takes more than 30s to sketch.

comment How does a developer code in anticipation of change?
You forgot: Write tests so you can quickly verify that your change didn't break stuff.

comment Is this a commonly encountered situation in C++? Is there a pattern to handle it?
Passing the object as param to the ctor just enforces this dependency; it doesn't have to be performed in sequence during start-up. You most likely create the window first and then load your resources at some later point.

No. Well, I do believe that initialization code should be in constructors, but it doesn't have to be of global objects. You can pass around the context object after window creation to wherever it is needed/you want.

comment Neural network input preprocessing
You absolutely don't want feature or object detection in there - this is a task people are working on for decades and we still don't have good solutions. And if you want any kind of behavior that looks 'realistic' to a player (for humans, animals, cars etc), there are alternatives that are far more suited to the task than ANNs.

comment Notifications system with too many subscribers
These people are trying to help. Maybe a less confrontational approach might be helpful. And you still didn't answer @DocBrown's question: how and when are those notifications processed?

comment How to unit test code that downloads a file from a github repo
His integration test should most likely test that the file he expects exists at the exact location his program tries to download it.
