comment Why is verbosity bad for a programming language?
@JarrodRoberson: I hate to be pedantic on a Friday night of all things, but I looked on a few online thesaurus's and none of them have terse as an antonym of verbose (or vice versa). /ducks

comment Help me learn to program with humility?
@ChaosPandion: Yes, someone is #1, but you have better odds of winning to lottery 50 times than being the #1 programmer in the world.

comment Is it wise for a high level developer to spend time studying assembly?
@Mason: I don't know if "every serious developer" needs to be able to read ASM. If you are writing JavaScript or using a programming language built atop a thick framework (like .NET or Java), I wouldn't regard being able to read ASM as essential to being a serious developer. That being said, having an understanding of how the computer executes instructions on a very low level can be quite helpful, even in higher order programming languages and environments.
