Went for a walk with some other conference attendees. I am trying to keep track of everything that anyone suggested I look into or that they would like to know about climate models.
I also chatted a little bit about a question I haven’t been able to leave behind – when is software “done”? I always have wondered how that decision is made. Everyone makes the “the money runs out” joke when I ask, but I really want to know. In particular, I wonder how people or teams learn to make the “done” decision, and how this differs between domains, teams, and people.
Last couple MSR papers now, the developer focused ones.
