comment What is Pseudocode?
-1 Not helpful. The quote only makes sense among an explanation of pseudocode (missing in this answer). Otherwise, it could be quite misleading. A newbie could wonder: well, C#'s methods are all in English, so that means the C# I'm using is Pseudocode, right...? What do they call it when they're using C# in Germany?

comment What does mathematics have to do with programming?
Mathematics is not the process of solving equations. If the only mathematics you've ever seen is the mathematics taught in school, you have never seen actual mathematics.

comment Why “programmer” is defined as designers and “developer” as creator?
@BenVoigt Well yes, but then you'd still be completely incorrect.

comment Is it possible to write application-level logic in an XML or plain text format?
What you are about to do will be another occurrence of the anti-pattern known as the Inner Platform Effect. Abandon hope, all ye who enter here, for many have trodden down this path and created something that was just terrible because no you cannot enable nonprogrammers to program without knowing how to program. They are, inevitably, programming. Don't do it, it's a waste of your time.

comment Why “programmer” is defined as designers and “developer” as creator?
@BenVoigt No, that isn't the case at all. Software Architect isn't defined as programmer minus degree, it's defined by the sort of work they do. Then we get back to the "there is no standard industry definition" thing.

comment What is a software prototype?
In addition to Bryan's statements, a prototype can also be something which is never intended to make it to production. E.G.: throw away prototyping.

comment How to teach a script to detect sarcasm?
@Kalle Let's be clear here. Sarcasm is one of the most subtle and advanced devices in spoken language. Even if you're a native English speaker, fully capable of picking up on the subtleties e.g. tone of voice and any relevant contextual information, you'll regularly fail to detect sarcasm. Non-native speakers stand almost no chance whatsoever. Take it to text and even the native speakers stand almost no chance. And you want computers, which struggle to dimly comprehend even the most simple of sentences, to solve this problem? Leave this to someone with a lifetime in speech and text analysis.

comment Does being a general programmer naturally lead to failure?
@P.Brian.Mackey About your lady-who-opened-a-brownie-shop situation: Do what you enjoy. That's the oft-spoken rule. That lady enjoys making other people happy, so her job is about making other people happy, and that's what gives her a job she enjoys.

comment Does being a general programmer naturally lead to failure?
@P.Brian.Mackey What I mean to point out is that nobody is saying this on the internet. Anywhere. At all. I trust your lecturers, but if this was some kind of law, I would expect better results.

Worth noting that the phrase shows up in only two places on Google, and one of them is this thread.
