comment Why is Scheme my first language in university?
@KevinJohnson emacs is frequently referred as an operating system written in LISP that accidentally helps lots of people edit code. If you do functional paradigms and (are taught to) like the obscenities of LISP-like syntaxes, it will likely grow on you as your preferred text editor.

comment Why is a architecture with anemic models the JavaEE standard?
@user949300 were you in the business, in 1999, in California, and know how deeply widespread and accepted where the gang of four ideas at the time? Or you're just toying with dates over wikipedia and assume ideas used to spread as fast as they do nowadays? (my feeling is they still DO NOT spread, in this puddle of mud we call "culture", unless they're bonkers: in that case, they fly)

Is "It's old" enough of an answer to you? Do you understand almost no-one gave a crap about patterns and anti-patterns 10 years ago? (even if some where already defined, really... no-one gave attention to them)

comment Do I have to be a hardcore programmmer to succeed?
You sound like "I don't want to become that ugly nerd, but I'm studying programming, so... will I morph into that?" YES YOU WILL.

comment What is MVC, really?
@OwenS. Accidentally came by this comment thread again, with a mystic argument. What also has many "well-known and carefully-constructed interpretations?" The concept of god. And many of those intepretations work, too. To a point. Some used to work, but then stopped. But, to me, the concept of god still comes out of a misconception of other concepts, like the concept of "lightnings", or that of "thunders". So, I'll never shake the feeling web-mcv was a cult. A semi-functional cult, a usefully mislabeled semplification. But now.. we're in a deep ocean, full of "cloud" mermaids, who cares.

comment Why are part-time jobs in programming an anomaly?
"There is no good reason" is the point of the answer. The fact workers in the field don't get it, might be the rant. Or a deeper truth to deal with, or both.

comment When should I make the first commit to source control?
@LeonardoHerrera I understand your POV, although in interpreted language projects with multiple entrance points, you end up committing some non-compiling branch with legitimate reasons (like sharing bug fixes on a different entrance point) it certainly can be done way better and way nicer, but then it sorta becomes a matter of tastes... and de gustibus non est disputandum.

comment What's the difference between an API and an SDK?
@Pacerier ...absolutely not. Examples might be part of an API documentation, but the sheer interface might be "undocumented", (i.e. the documentation regarding it is kept secret to the outside world: think... idk, microsoft) while still being an API. It's just the interface. Functions, classes, calls, maybe a protocol, maybe a file format, but nothing more.

comment What is MVC, really?
@OwenS. ...I'm not gonna edit again this answer, after all this time, but I was passing by and only now noticed your comment, and I was wondering which "well-known and carefully-constructed interpretations" you where thinking about.
