comment CoffeeScript and Named Functions
"Just nitpicking" implies the answer doesn't matter, and that understanding the subtleties of a language isn't a worthy goal.

@WinstonEwert See my update. Python really doesn't have anything to do with it...

comment How can I give my client “full access” to their PHP application's MySQL database?
Charge them for it. If what they're requiring is going to be extra work for you, make sure they understand this and charge them for the work. They probably won't be as interested if they understand that what they're asking for isn't trivial. Better yet, choose a framework which uses a real database schema and just give them access to the data, like they're asking.

comment Is any JavaScript code used only for websites, open source?
This is wrong, the GPL doesn't work this way. Including a link to a GPL'd JS file in the output of your PHP code doesn't somehow make your PHP code open source.

comment Is any JavaScript code used only for websites, open source?
@Robert I believe the GPL licence affects derivative code. Including a GPL'd library in your project doesn't somehow make the entire thing open source. Otherwise developing closed-source applications for Linux would be impossible. If you use a GPL'd JS library your code is still your own; If you modify the library the modified library is GPL'd.

comment Math questions at a programmer interview?
I can't let this stand. "The more I learn, the more old knowledge gets popped out of my stack"?? That isn't how stacks work!
