@Jimmy Hoffa: reworded my question. Is that better?

comment Can you apply the same lexer rules to all programming languages?
@MichaelT: I'm thinking a tool that reads an input file and outputs the tokens. In my understanding Lex is more than that, is it not?

comment How is referential transparency enforced?
Would you mind detailing a bit the executing actions is NOT function application phrase? In my example I meant to return an integer. What happens if a return an integer?

comment Why isn't functional language syntax more close to human language?
@Jörg W Mittag: Let me rephrase my first statement. What math do I need to know so that it gets more familiar faster?

@sepp2k: Not really to that extent :), but just to give an example, compare Haskell list comprehensions (pure math) with Python list comprehensions.

There is just one problem with this answer: I'm not a mathematician.

comment Design pattern for access to tree-like database in Java?
@Pureferret: it's not a pattern but I recently bumped into this technology. Maybe you could borrow some ideas from there.

comment NoSql databases - Decent tutorial/book that covers the concepts
OK, that much I figured, but there must be something that covers them all, or if not, then good ones that cover each one (but agnostic of a specific implementation)

comment Change my way of thinking in preparation for functional programming
@TomCaps: Ia already have some exposure to the FP features of C# and Python and use them whenever oportunity presents itself, but I just think there's more to it than "a cooler way of doing iterative stuff". From here my question.

@Vladimir Volodin: That would be nice but it's not mandatory for every book. Can you recommend some good ones (preferably language agnostic)?

comment Are developers/programmers becoming a commodity in the IT world?
developers == the workers that actually put in existence what Business Analysts, Project Managers, Cloud Solutions Engineer, and Technical Architects think up. Have you seen a company without workers so far?

comment Why is Python recommended as an entry level programming language?
@Péter Török: Yes, and it takes your entire foot away (c++ :D). I said "more static" trying to avoid flame wars for something like... I don't know... Java?!?!... which everybody seems to hate as it is thought at school/universities and people have some scares from it...

Counter analogy: Teaching your kid about not playing with fire. 1) You can talk to him, explain what fire is and what fire does, show PowerPoint slides whatever.. or 2) let him play with fire and get burned. The second method is far more efficient indeed. What I'm interested about is the possibility that he might set the house on fire or even like it and become a pyromaniac because no safety measures were taken. Kind of an extreme situation but can't really express it in words.

Yes, but about those "private" parts, since you have access to them, you might be tempted to hack some workarounds/shortcuts around them not knowing better.
