comment What language should an 11-year old start with to learn game programming?
I think the reason to suggest these is so blindingly obvious that I left it out: These learning environments are made for kids, they are fun to use, and don't contain initial hurdles like professional languages do.

comment What are the biggest differences between F# and Scala?
One additional important difference is that Scala has implicit conversions, which allows to simulate Haskell style type-classes.

comment What's the most important trait of a programmer desired by peer programmers
Laziness: E.g. you won't a peer doing "copy and paste", but factoring out common things. You want code that doesn't need explanations. Impatience: You don't want a peer using slow algorithms or unnecessary DB round-trips. Hubris: Most importantly, you want to learn new and brilliant things from your colleague, and very likely you won't get this from very modest people. It looks like you don't understand that peer programming is not about having a nice time, it's about writing great applications. Of course my answer was tongue-in-cheek, but there is truth in it.
