comment How do I develop in more languages with less IDEs
I don't have experience with Scala/Haskell. Again, I would google for stuff like "best scala ide" and see which one would fit your requirements best. PS: You can skip WebStorm and develop JS/CSS with visual studio. It's a decent IDE for web development and with the Resharper add-in you get auto-complete in JS and Css. (there are also free plug-ins available for this.)

try doing all that development in notepad and then let us know how that brain of yours is doing :-)

comment Creating a webservice API - how much “credit” should I give the client/developer
does the ID need to be unique at your side or at his side? If its at your side, you should include a GetUniqueId function in your API.

comment What do I need to learn to become a better web programmer?
My advice: Read books. Which books? Google for "recommended programmer books" and read all of them. You're 15 years old, you have time.

comment Naming a class that decides to retrieve things from cache or a service + architecture evaluation
update: the top rated answer on this link seems to answer it pretty well. stackoverflow.com/questions/1440096/… I guess it's very appropriate to name it CarRepository.

comment Naming a class that decides to retrieve things from cache or a service + architecture evaluation
Péter, what do you think about naming CarService CarRepository? Or is a repository not meant to contain as much logic as I want to put in it?

ok, good point. Thanks a lot for your advice and suggestions. Was certainly helpful.

comment Naming a class that decides to retrieve things from cache or a service + architecture evaluation
I like your naming suggestions, but perhaps CarCacheManager would be more appropriate since CarCache sounds like a class that actually holds the storage, instead of a class that provides an interface with the (memory)storage?

comment Naming a class that decides to retrieve things from cache or a service + architecture evaluation
yeah I'm developing this using Test Driven Design for the first time, which forced me to think more careful about this stuff. I understand your point and although I said I'd mainly use CarCacheManager for debugging, I think it's also important that people can quickly see how my application works without depending on an external service. The external service actually talks with Active Directory and MS Exchange Server so it would be nice if I can fake this stuff for demos and developing the GUI. What is your reason not to implement ICarService?

comment Is obtrusive JavaScript ever ok?
I've built some gracefully degrading pages in the past and found the html and javascript to be a lot less transparent, if you still want to offer the JS enabled visitors the best user experience. The pages were A LOT harder to build and I believe the guy maintaining the page will have quite some difficulties following your code. So there is certainly a long term maintainability cost to keep in mind when estimating the cost for making your site gracefully degrading. I found it to be very tempting to compromise on the JS enabled UX..

comment Is it appropriate to offer a “finders' fee” to existing staff when looking for new staff?
This reply hardly answers the question imho. The question was not why his company doesn't find new hires, the question was if it's appropriate to offer a finders fee.

comment Managers X Motivation
Confront your manager with "do you think I'm not reliable?", that's a good point imo. You could also argue that you can watch whatever you want on your smartphone, but I wouldn't recommend this; might backfire :-)
