comment Do I have to be a hardcore programmmer to succeed?
@RichardTingle - that depends on which activities are considered to be "work". Hobbies are good to have and they can be about coding stuff.

comment Low coupling when using sealed classes?
This is probably a hack rather than a pattern. Either the API incorrectly assumed there is no need to extend, or the consuming code is extending incorrectly.

comment Conceptual mismatch between DDD Application Services and REST API
I personally don't consider REST that necessary. However it is possible to shoehorn DDD into it: infoq.com/articles/rest-api-on-cqrs programmers.stackexchange.com/questions/242884/… blog.42.nl/articles/rest-and-ddd-incompatible

comment Implementing common logic in base class
@Ryathal TDD is definitely overrated and overpromoted, but it would be beneficial if you could provide a small code example to confirm your opinion.

comment Is there a correlation between the scale of the project and the strictness of the language?
"code-completion/intellisense" - automated refactoring is also quite important.

comment Is there a correlation between the scale of the project and the strictness of the language?
"Python is successfully used for large systems" - what is the definition of "success" here? That it mostly runs and produces some result? Is the amount of testing and workforce required included? What about maintainability?

comment Is it a good idea to contextually name predefined functional interfaces?
"...abusing ... to make Java feel more like C#" - but is it a bad thing? C# team approves C# being abused to feel more like F#, and Java-style annotations were added to TypeScript (not C#-style). Pick and mix the best.

comment Do you also find the use of functional reactive programming in JavaScript a bit overbloated?
@MainMa also web front-end doesn't automatically mean HTML+JS, but people seem to be implying it often. Anyway server provides a real choice of language while the client does not, so it is obvious what he/she meant.

comment When is it a good idea to force garbage collection?
@JimmyHoffa I guess people with short attention span will stop forcing GC. Ever. Maybe it's a good thing.

comment When is it a good idea to force garbage collection?
So you wouldn't advice forcing immediately it after e.g. a game scene was destroyed or created?

@PetrPudlák - is it a Haskell-specific or a general question?

comment Why (or why not) are existential types considered bad practice in functional programming?
@Ptolemy: Haskell's mantra is "if it compiles it works", Erlangs mantra is "let it crash". Dynamic typing is good as a glue, but I personally wouldn't build things using just the glue.
