comment Why does git allow you to “change history”?
Really disagree on the close... "exact duplicate"? Really? I'm asking about the design decisions (and design philosophy) going into svn vs. git and the other question is asking about whether to delete history or not. My question got some very interesting answers that had nothing to do with whether to delete history. No comparison in my opinion. Disappointed!

I just thought of another reason... suppose you accidentally commit a HUGE video file... why should the repo have to carry around that baggage?

comment How can I teach a bright person, with no programming experience, how to program?
This course lynda.com/JavaScript-tutorials/… gives a language-independent introduction to programming concepts (using JavaScript as a teaching tool). It is not free though.

comment Which things instantly ring alarm bells when looking at code?
I hate commented-out code myself, but I kind of have some sympathy because version control systems (at least the ones I know) do not have easy-to-use ways of searching for deleted content in an existing file.
