comment learning algorithms or learning a new language
"low level details that java and c# is hiding" - they aren't "hiding" any precious details that C++ would suddenly expose. You need to study assembly if you really want to see the details.

comment Why doesn't the HTML\DOM specification allow hyperlinks to set an accept header?
Web is a legacy platform hindered by a fear of change and a slow standards committee: wtfhtmlcss.com wtfjs.com

You can use (paid) postsharp.net/model/inotifypropertychanged to avoid explicit notifying logic in your VM properties, which could cut the number of lines significantly.

comment Is immutability very worthwhile when there is no concurrency?
@MainMa Thank you for your answer, but as far as I understand ReadOnlyDictionary doesn't give any guarantees that someone else will not change the underlying dictionary (even without concurrency I might want to save the reference to the original dictionary within object the method belongs to for later use). ReadOnlyDictionary is even declared in a strange namespace: System.Collections.ObjectModel.

comment Is immutability very worthwhile when there is no concurrency?
@Mehrdad it's nice to know what is intended to happen to a collection parameter just by looking at the signature. Otherwise (theoretically) you need to write an extra unit test, checking that a collection did not change after calling a function.
