comment Security Concerns with password storage in Scripting Languages (VBA)
@HariSeldon Good idea, sometimes it is hard to balance these things. And sometimes you can't; that is part of the fun of figuring this stuff out though. :)

comment Designing an API on top with Java RMI and Rest APIs
I think it depends on what you are doing. Obviously you wouldn't re-write a whole API. But the chances that you would actually use every feature a vendor API has is pretty slim. So, you can wrap what you are using and ignore what you aren't. This is especially helpful if the vendor API is complex or archaic. You can minimize your interactions with it, which is handy when these interactions can be error prone.

comment Javascript naming conventions
I don't necessarily buy using the notation as "breaking" the loosely typed aspects of the language. Sure, you would have to change the name when you are changing the type, but that would be a good thing to do anyway so you can track what you are doing. I know there are aspects of it that are ugly. But, if you've ever worked in a LARGE (I'm talking hundreds of thousands of lines of code) project in a loosely typed language, it can help you find your way faster in certain instances. Saying it's dated, etc really doesn't address the core issue the OP was trying to slove.
