comment What do you call a customer's customer in a specification document, use case, or scenario?
@jmort253, the project I'm working on at the moment has customers of customers of my client. The jargon of the project is that the customers of my client are called "subscribers" and their customers are called "consumers". Using Amazon's marketplace metaphor they could instead be stallholders and shoppers.

comment Is “Computer Science != Software Engineering” an excuse to teach programming poorly?
@SnOrfus, I don't see your point. This is programming SE, not CS SE.

Why is the question limited to CS? I don't think it's possible to get a maths degree now without writing code either.

@jmort253, simple: never use the word customer. Shopper and merchant.

comment What arguments are there in favor of weak typing?
As a side-note, it's possible to write dynamically typed code in some statically typed languages, such as Java and C#, by making everything object. One important case where this is used is interfacing with a database without using an ORM.

@Renesis, I don't, no. But the ML family of languages is statically typed and uses type inference so you very rarely have to explicitly state the type of a variable.

Your comment "// no i = ((Array)data).length or Array myArr=(Array)data;" isn't really anything to do with dynamic typing, because the array-ness of data is provable at compile-time. A statically typed language could propagate knowledge obtained from instanceof.
