comment Technology choice for cross platform development (desktop and phone)?
If you are the only developer, I recommend you not to go for the cross platform approach. You will end up recreating the services provided by native platforms. Search for what dropbox did to make their app cross platform. They are successful, but it is clear it involves huge amount of work, requiring a large team.

Different opinions provide different perspectives about a subject matter. I don't understand why thought provoking questions are discouraged.

comment Inspiring problems to show off the importance of regular expressions?
@WvHoUnited I love that cartoon :-). I don't think there would be a programmer (or even computer user) who wouldn't see the necessity of regexes if they know it.

comment Inspiring problems to show off the importance of regular expressions?
Very true. The problem is more fundamental. I have noticed that they go with doing things by manual repetition, than considering automation or regex. This is where I thought they want to make them excited about the possibilities of regex.
