comment What intermediate representations can be used to reason about concurrency?
If you write your code in a functional way, you won't have to worry about race conditions or side-effects.

What do you mean? mysql is perfectly capable of handling the data you describe.

comment Can I share ~1k of dynamically updated data between HTML5/JS pages using only apache2?
Persistence between two clients requires a persistence mechanism on the server. The usual suspects apply: a SQL database, a file, a Key/Value store, etc.

comment Lead developer unable to do INNER JOIN
@MarjanVenema: I totally never said that you couldn't be a developer and not know JOIN. And you yourself pointed out that you do know what a JOIN is.

comment Lead developer unable to do INNER JOIN
Learning how to play the piano and learning what a JOIN is are not quite the same thing. They're not even in the same league. If a developer doesn't have enough intellectual curiosity to even learn what a simple JOIN is, then what's the hope of them ever learning anything more substantial, like a Continuation?

comment Lead developer unable to do INNER JOIN
@yannis: If you don't know how to do a join, you don't have a working knowledge of SQL at all. I don't know how you can really call yourself a developer without such knowledge.

comment Lead developer unable to do INNER JOIN
So you're going to never learn relations because you get all of your data in Key/Value pairs from some magic black box over the Internet? It wouldn't be true anyway, because you can represent complex data structures (including relations) in objects handed to you over the Internet. So you're still going to need some basic understanding.
