comment What is the verb for “to make something into a plugin”?
Modularize is the closest word I can think of. Or perhaps componentize. That's what you do when you transform something into a plugin.

Translation occurs in both cases.

comment Would it be the right software engineering system to move from AngularJS-based to jQuery-based or hybrid implementation for webapp?
Note that Stack Exchange Chat has always used polling. It currently uses websockets if the browser supports it, but falls back to polling if the browser doesn't. Scaling has never been a problem.

Something smells fishy about the information in your first paragraph. What you describe there sounds like it would be a problem in any SPA application, not just a chat webapp.

@Euphoric: I welcome suggestions for better wording. Basically, the point of that paragraph is to distinguish declarative from imperative. See the first couple of paragraphs here: latentflip.com/imperative-vs-declarative

It's not that much boilerplate, and if it's really that bothersome, one could always write a T4 template to generate it. The real problem with C# is that (prior to .NET 4.5) there were no genuinely immutable collections.

comment Programming by usage
I associate the term "SOA" with things like CORBA, service buses, message queues, and over-engineering in general, although I can see how the term might be applied to more "modern" (and lightweight) approaches like REST endpoints and MVC architecture.
