comment Can I (reasonably) refuse to sign an NDA for pro bono work?
To be sure, I'm not arguing or asking about whether the NDA request is appropriate (of course it is). I'm simply asking if I should keep working on this project for free after creating a legal obligation for myself.

comment How can I figure out if programming is right for me?
@allquixotic I disagree with that – if you feel the need to stick to where programming is easy, then you probably don't like learning enough.

comment What problems can arise from emulating concepts from another languages?
@MainMa I hear you, but to find a job where I wouldn't have to write JavaScript I would have to pin myself down to backend or not work on the web. I guess I prefer JavaScript to those alternatives. (Besides, I don't need to emulate class-based OOP, I just make fun of those who do.)

comment What problems can arise from emulating concepts from another languages?
you should maybe choose another language... except when you don't have a choice, such as client side JavaScript. (Even so, having no choice is no excuse for implementing class-based OOP emulation in a prototype language. It's far more efficient to just learn how the language works.)

comment Torvalds' quote about good programmer
But focusing on either the forest or the trees to the exclusion of the other can be detrimental, so I don't think this analogy fits.

comment Torvalds' quote about good programmer
@RyanKinal But of course the language does matter, because it makes it considerably easier to deal with and think about certain data structures. Think about all the languages that specialize in LISt Parsing, for example, or languages that have native support for data structures that have to be hacked into other languages, (sets and sparse arrays come to mind).
