comment How many bytes can I fit into a QR code, with low error correction?
Ok, but 10 arrays, with 32 bytes per array means there will be 320 bytes in total.

300K Do you mean KB or Kb?

comment What next steps to gain contributors to my programming language Wake?
Perhaps to gain contributors, develop and release a small (but interesting enough to hold people's attention) application. Release it on its own website with a little badge somewhere that says "built with Wake". That might create buzz and interest and maybe people will start getting involved...

comment What next steps to gain contributors to my programming language Wake?
You seem to think that Num -- generate( Num ) { is more intuitive than this.generate = function(x) { but I'd disagree: I don't need to understand the special meaning of the new notation -- to know what's going on there. Also, -- is a single-line comment in many SQL dialects, and also the auto-decrement in other languages. Not sure what it means in Wake, but maybe you want to consider a new symbol?

comment What constitutes a good Database System(Java / SQL related)
@Juxhin: Perhaps, but I think a bigger question is do you need a single database which multiple application instances can connect to, or is it OK for application instances to have their own independent and separate databases?

comment What constitutes a good Database System(Java / SQL related)
@Juxhin: SQLite is usually used as an embedded database for a single instance of an application. If you don't need a single and centralized database where all applications connect to, SQLite might be a good choice. It is not as feature-rich as many heavier RDBMSs, although that usually gives it much better performance.

comment What constitutes a good Database System(Java / SQL related)
@Juxhin: You don't normally connect to a database file, normally you have a database server runnning (such as MySQL, Oracle, MS SQL,...) and connect to that (via the correct URL) and let the server worry about the file location. Of course there are some databases such as SQLite which are file based because they don't run as separate servers, they are accessed via a library and driver.

comment Should I leave my job and self learn for a few months?
If you can afford to not receive income for a while, it might be worth it. Certainly it will help you learn new skills that you aren't learning at work and that you don't have time to learn after work. On the other hand, there is no garuantee that you it will be easier to get a better job after doing this.

comment Is there a design pattern for dynamically applying transformations or filters to a model?
@BryanAgee: I've used spring for that. The chain definitions are stored in a spring configuration file that is loaded when the application starts up. Our applications have a finite number of chains defined so it's not a problem that chain definitions are only loaded once. Are you creating new types of chains on the fly?

comment Why is polling accepted in web programming?
@dennis: a stateful, persistent connection between the server and client would probably get rid of the need for polling, but that is not how the Web was designed.
