comment Do I need to understand pointers to use C++?
I disagree that "[pointers] are a fundamental concept of programming." Not all languages even have them, so I think that alone refutes your assertion.

comment What's your strongest opinion against functional programming?
Scala in no way requires more than a smattering of Java knowledge. I don't even understand the 2nd sentence. The assertion that it is big is demonstrably false.

comment What natural language has the advantage when it comes to programming?
Without grammatical sex, where will little Turkishes come from? (By the way, when I saw the question but before looking here, I thought of Turkish. While I don't speak it, I'd heard about how regular it is.)
