comment What programming problems are best solved by using pointers?
In some (usually dynamic) languages you don't have explicit pointers: that is, absolutely everything behaves as a (safe) pointer. Do you "use" pointers in this scenario?

comment Is it acceptable to use lambda functions\methods in business software?
