I mostly do Erlang and CoffeeScript these days and am the author of "Building Web Applications in Erlang" and "Programming HTML5 Applications" Both of which were published by O'Reilly.

I am also very interested in the question, How do I become a great developer and spend a fair bit of time thinking about it.

I am also a compulsive writer. I love writing as it forces me to really think about what is important and how to make ideas seem more concreate

comment Does this kind of programming language exist?
Honestly I don't know what the C looks like. Clearly it is valid C code and will compile and run. C is not all that strongly typed to begin with.

comment How to distribute, one virtual token to each person in this world, and make sure nobody gets more than one?
In my case not, but I can imagine cases where that might happen, esp if you might want to visit countries that might not like each other's stamps. For example going into some Arab countries is harder if you have an Israeli stamp on your passport

And I know many people who have 2 or even 3 passports, quite legally.

comment Is there a web-specific reason for the design choices behind the JavaScript language?
Also note that the DOM was something that was added into JavaScript much later, a lot of it was just it came out in a hurry and no one thought it was going to turn into this HUGE thing

comment Do we need Logging when doing TDD?
Even if you have 100% coverage do you have it for every possible thing that can happen? What if the network connection to your database goes down? Will your tests tell you that?
