comment What is programming like in the Japanese language?
@Zeno - That's internationalizing character strings the user will see. That's important to do even if the code is by and for English-speakers. Comments & variable names & internal language aren't really correlated unless the code is going to be released as an API.

comment Assembly as a First Programming Language?
@Whatsisname +1, that would make a nice impressive demo, as long as it can be done without getting caught up in the electronics. Of course, that could be done with a higher-level language too i.e. Roomba hacking, if the "driver" were an instructor-provided black box.

comment Assembly as a First Programming Language?
@Imran I agree in principal, but every college-level program I can think of has degrees in Computer Science which are earned by people who mostly go on to work in Software Engineering. (I'm assuming this question is about a serious basis for a programming career, not e.g. a high-school survey course)

comment Do I deserve a promotion/higher salary?
+1 never burn bridges. There are always "softer" ways to communicate the same message, just takes a little self-control.

comment Do I deserve a promotion/higher salary?
@Jeff Definitely, if they give you an outright no. But seems more typical to use delay tactics - we'll see how things are going in 6 months...
