comment Almost every reported bug is a high-priority bug
@DavorŽdralo maybe process is not the right word used here. I meant it's the normal thing that happens.

comment Should I declare variables at the top of the function for reasons other than the scope rules?
Just follow these 2 rules: 1: the scope of your variables should be as small as possible 2: declare your variables where the scope starts.

comment Do compilers have to be written for each model of CPU?
What do you mean with "model of cpu"? Do you mean the difference between an ARM and an x86 processor, processors with very different architecture. Or do you mean different "models" of processors within same family? Like: an old pentium processor vs a celeron. The answer will be different.

comment How to illustrate to students why they should use the standard library?
Students have to reinvent the wheel, that's why they're students. Also, you're probably running into people who have prior programming knowledge and don't take what you say at face value.

comment Why are deadlines always so short?
@Kyralessa Maybe I worded it strange but I meant that managers already factor in parkinson's law and know about it, And then set too tight deadlines.

comment Is there any practical way for a linked node structure to be immutable?
Why would you make an immutable linked list? The biggest benefit of a linked list is the mutability, wouldn't you be better off with an array?

comment Is it a common practice among professional programmers to avoid the use of raw pointers?
I think this question is ambiguous because avoid can have two meanings: "try to not use yourself" and "try to not encounter". Like me: yes I avoid using pointers (in my own new code), no I don't avoid (run away from) code that uses pointers.

If a function doesn't work in an android 4 version it might as well not exist at all.

comment Do binary trees serve a specific purpose in storing hierarchical data? What is their canonical use?
This answer leaves out half of the reason why you want to use them: adding and removing elements. It's not only about access to elements: a sorted array would be just as fast as a binary tree.

comment What is faster? Using REST API or querying a database directly?
@JacquesB and the web app runs on the clients computer. So it shouldn't be trusted because it could be a modified version.
