Garbage-collecting duck-typer. Test-infected. Hopefully he is not alone who would like UNIX rewritten with GC memory and closure support in system, kernel API in Javascript, (Python, Ruby, Smalltalk), and C layer deprecated and emulated on top of the former.

I use Windows on workstation and FreeBSD on server.

Recently dipped myself into the mobile app world.

comment Visitor Pattern still useful in languages supporting class extensions?
GoF book says nothing about traversal. The fact is, most uses of Visitor pattern are traversals (including my example of Pharo's AST-Core).

Assembler is not as low as you can get. Machine code is lower. ;-)

comment I failed FizzBuzz, would you hire me?
In my opinion, you failed it epically by not including the && correctly. The == 0 is an unimportant detail. This code gives the impression you are a cowboy.

comment Google Blink (new WebKit fork): Meaning of “Moving DOM into Javascript”?
From what I know (from es-discuss mailing list, for example), it is definitely the latter. There is a wish to have DOM written in JS, not just because of marshalling cost (which is there), but also for removing as much of the "exotic", "non-native", "special" objects from the language space as possible. DOM is big PITA for language designers, because it is special.

comment Are there any programming languages that follow a minimalist development approach?
@MattFenwick: Ok, in fact I did not know and drew the analogy from Smalltalk ifTrue: which is defined in the library and can be fully redefined; but of course, it is low-level so it contains <primitive: ...> pragma.
