comment I'm porting my app from iOS to Android: what do I need to know?
A lot of my thinking on this has changed thanks to AppCode. It's awesome. Still, it can't differentiate between same-named things, but it definitely does a lot of the work for you.

comment Why is there still case sensitivity in some programming languages?
That's kind of spurious: just because the compiler doesn't enforce it doesn't mean it doesn't exist. The conventions do enforce it, and programmers generally follow conventions.

comment Boss is afraid to use a version control system for new project, should I anyway?
without the right .gitignore a git repo is basically useless. That's the only thing that you have to have in place aside from git init

comment The bracketless if statement is frowned upon, but is it still bad style if your IDE is equipped for it?
Thanks for stating the minority view (or majority, maybe). I only use brackets if I have more than one line within the if or else. On a related note, when writing in English, you don't use bullets for a list that has only one item ;)

comment Does language endorsement by different platforms (Android, iOS) hurt app development?
"any programmer worth his or her pay should be able to learn new languages and toolkits quickly." In my experience, most of those who think they have that ability do not, in fact, though they can get impossible-to-update, inflexible working code out the door for the first prototype. Learning languages takes time, passion and interest, and it's not for every programmer who is worth his or her pay. That said, the rest of the answer is valid, +1 :)
