comment Does over-reliance on tools imply that you are lazy?
hey meant exactly that: the only factor to decide GET vs POST is amount of parameters. And, imho, if you hit the query length max, your problem is not GET vs POST, but a strange API that begs to be refactored.

comment Why aren't there explicit access modifiers in Python:
It's more than just the implementation: objects can be modified at runtime, so a PPP-notation for methods is not sufficient

comment Which extreme-programming techniques are appropriate to use in a research environment?

comment Are all programming problems algorithm problems?

Im not sure about the inernal workings of node.js, but i think yes. Just structure the source code in a way you like, and let the templating etc do the rest

comment At what point can I say I've “learned” a language?
In interviews, it's "i know it" if the interviewer wears a tie, and it's "please define 'to know'" if he does not ;). To be fair, most interviewers ask if one "has experience with", to which i am more easily inclined to answer with "yes"

comment Structure of a single page app
why should the code more harder to maintain? What i say is that you are free to organize your code in one way, and present the resulting html to the client in another. Even if the clients gets everything in one big html-page, that does not mean the page is not assembled from many templates.
