comment How to move towards understanding infrastructure?
I guess this will be closed as too broad (asking for off site resources is off topic too). Maybe jump over to The Whiteboard chat room where it would ok to ask. In short: A with everything else you need to practice it. No way around that. There are many resources and tutorials about Redis for example. Install Linux on a machine, install Redis and try it out.

comment How To Change Property Of A Li Item Without Affecting Other Items?
@php.dev.2014 implementation questions are off topic on Programmers.SE. You should have asked this on Stack Overflow.

comment Need Technical and HLD architecture Document
Then maybe you should do your job and write it. What exactly do you expect? People writing documents for you about projects they know nothing about?

comment Need Technical and HLD architecture Document
What exactly is your problem? What did you try to solve it? Programmers.SE isn't a code writing or tutorial service and in its current form this question seems far too broad to be answerable.

comment Could the trivium be used to successfully teach programming languages?
Is this a fixed order or does this repeat in a circular way (if I get the Wiki article right it's fixed)? There is a lot of syntax where it doesn't make sense to teach it to somebody new to programming (eg all the memory handling and pointer stuff in C & C++, or meta programming in Ruby). On the other side some OOP paradigms and a lot of tools can (and should) be taught very early. All in all this teaching method sounds far too rigid for a complex field like programming.

comment Managing unique data correctly in SQL
I solved a similar problem by just changing the value of the field to something like DELETED-#numeric_id-#old_value where #numeric_id is the autoincrement unique key the record had anyway, so even if several records where using the same value over and over again it would stay unique. That way I can keep the value in this field, have still the old value and be sure it is unique under any circumstances. Not sure if best way though.

comment PHP: frequent file system write
Sounds weird to do this with files. I would look at a different solution, preferrably something that's is good at handling data without the need to fully define a table structure. Some NoSQL database that acceppts key/value storage. Maybe redis would work for you.

comment What other technologies/other skills should I develop in my hunt for a job in development/research?
@0xhughes I was mainlz talking about the chat rooms that directly belong to Programmers.SE and Stack Overflow like The Whiteboard. Admittedly not always that much traffic. But the only way to ask off topic questions here. Otherwise places like reddit or HackerNews would have similar communities (if not often the same people anyway) and are more open to career advice.

What did you try? Where exactly did it fail? Also read the Open letter to students with homework problems

comment problem: coding or using game Engine?
Would totally depend on the kind of game. Some are just far too complex to be reasonably done without lots of external libraries or game engines. As long as you can handle it and have fun just go ahead without one. Otherwise there will be enough coding left if you use a game engine. It's just different stuff, you will be able to concentrate more on the logic of the game itself.

comment Why is first column of list called 0th in so many languages?
Already answered here I think. Not sure if duplicate, but at least a lomg discussion of the reasoning behind the 0 index. Also here the same thing.

comment Relevance of search results
With Elasticsearch you would most likely have this setup done faster than with anything you are working right now. There are a lot of resources on scoring like this one. In short: More hits are better, hits for less frequent words score higher and scores in more relevant fields (maybe title) score higher than some others (long text description).

comment .Net profiler MSDN example - Spyder.dll not working
Already asked on Stack Overflow and off topic on Programmers.SE. Though will maybe get closed for low quality. Did you debug the code? Where exactly did the problem appear? Please do not just link to some external resources, it's very unlikely that anybody here reads the whole text and installs the whole software. Most likely just to find out it runs fine on his system and still not knowing what's wrong on yours. You must be much more specific and actually put some work into this to get help.

comment What other technologies/other skills should I develop in my hunt for a job in development/research?
Yes, Stack Overflow does not want this kind of question since it does not fit the site very well. But since you have more than enough reputation to do so, feel free to ask this in one of the many chat rooms where discussions are welcome.

comment Using home server to develop, moving everything out of local machine
Maybe asking about this specific issue (performant file sharing between server & client) would be a more valid question (more likely on ServerFault). But I would most likely prefer the virtual machine for this kind of setup. You keep configurations separated and most of them can easily share files between host & client.

comment Using home server to develop, moving everything out of local machine
Try on a virtual machine. Some PHP guys I know use Vagrant for everything. There are a lot of options I think. That said this question will most likely be closed, because it's not really clear what you are asking. How to setup this thing? (Would be better at SuperUser). If it will work? well if you do this right, that's how many of us work one way or another. It may slow you down a bit first but you will learn a lot of useful things soon.

comment Android. How to create a horizontal, scrollable, infinite list of images… this is heavy people
@Oded: About the cross post, as so often he was told by some guy there to try his luck on Programmers. (And as so often this guy never asked or answered a single question on Programmers). It's "too broad", then maybe try on Programmers...

comment Android. How to create a horizontal, scrollable, infinite list of images… this is heavy people
This was already (and rightfully) closed as 'too broad' on Stack Overflow. Please do not cross post questions on both sites. It is still too broad here and off topic, since it's an implementation issue. Also people here will not write your code for you.

comment Loading dynamic css based on user
Without detailed information difficult to say. But in general option two would be the better way. Maybe have a look at other themed solutions like jQuery UI ThemeRoller.

comment Can I use MySql for storing 1000 rows per second?
If MySQL should fail, then maybe this link would show some alternatives: kkovacs.eu/cassandra-vs-mongodb-vs-couchdb-vs-redis
