comment How to fix TikZ node's height with \heightof?
@FrederickNord: New questions made within comments have difficult visibility, it's better that you make it as a new question with link to this answer.

comment Text Wrapping in tikz node doesn't work
@Raj: Ups! you're right I haven't seen it. In any case where could be cmem_in hyphenated? TeX only know how to break know words, but not estrange ones even more if it contains - or _

You also need to fix a text width to allow hyphenation.

comment How to align `tcolorbox` at the top?
@HarishKumar: You're right, I've forgotten it. I cannot test it now but do you think that using a tcbox (size adjusted to content) for left hand text and a breakable tcolorbox (with calculated width) for right hand text has any sense? This way both top lines would be aligned.

comment Creating a new shape
Instead of a new shape you can try with a pic (TiKZ 3.0), they are easier to understand and use. Some examples: tex.stackexchange.com/a/170686/1952, tex.stackexchange.com/a/151772/1952

comment Retain coordinate value in tikz foreach loop
Not sure about understanding your problem but may be this answer to How to fix the trajectory of Brownian motions which generated by the “rand” function with tikz in beamer frames could help you. It proposes to save all random generated values into data files and use them later without having to compute (or remeber) them again.

comment Beamer - building footnote example with columns and minipage
@MadHatter If you mean the complete box (code and result), yes. But use environments \begin{onlyenv}<1-> ... \end{onlyenv} instead of commands \only<1->{}. If you mean applying overlays to code and result I don't think so, but you can ask here. Thomas F. Sturm (tcolorbox author) is also member of TeX.SX club.

comment How may I keep my logo at the front of my slide
@user124358: Beamer uses themes to fix all components appearance. I think it's better to use themes to change colors, fonts, etc. but if you prefer fixing them by hand include \setbeamercolor{title}{fg=white}\setbeamercolor{author}{fg=white}\setbeamercolo‌​r{date}{fg=white,bg=blue} and see what happen. After that I'd suggest taking a walk through beamer questions and answers here and taking a look to beamer documentation

comment How can I have a node spanned over multiple columns push to its cell borders' borders?
@henry If you omit inner sep=0pt, long text node will be longer (by 2 x inner sep) than distance WordD.east - WordA.west. If you don't mind having a longer node, you can omit this correction. anchor=west is crucial here because it fixes the reference point for node. This node anchor will be placed where at fixes.

comment Switching between environments
If the problem are floats a possible solution is not using them. I include graphics in my exams with just \includegraphics (without figure) where I need them. floats mean this, graphics will appear where LaTeX considers. They are good for documents, but I don't think the same for short exams.

comment Fill a path but drawing just a part of it at the same time
Do you know new (TiKZ 3.0) angles library? It doesn't mark angles with short lines like your code but draw, fill and label angles.
