comment How to program for constraints/rules
@Gaurav: modelling cards as objects sounds like a fine way to treat the cards themselves, but you’re quite right that that doesn’t complete the job of modelling a card game. A card game is a separate thing from the cards used to play it (hence playing cards are used to play lots of different games).

comment I'm a Subversion geek, why should I consider or not consider Mercurial or Git or any other DVCS?
@MartinGeisler: ah, cool, I’ll take a look at that. I’ve never actually used Git, but there are definitely times with Mercurial when I’ve made accidental or disorganised commits and would like to clean them up a bit.

comment Why can't we capture the design of software more effectively?
I’ve no idea on the whys of this issue, but it’s the subject of Fred Brooks’ ‘The Design of Design’‌​. (Apologies if you’re already familiar.) He discusses examples from programming and architecture. He particularly notes that capturing rationales (for both the design, and rejected alternate designs) is really useful, and not well-served by current tools.

comment Techniques to increase logic at programming
“I afraid of code... if I dont finish it on time my boss will fire me etc.” — That’s not a great environment in which to enjoy, and therefore get better at, programming.
