comment Is this a good idea to use humour during a job interview?
@David: Computers are cold, rational, emotionless slates and it is naive to think none of this brushes off onto the programmer. See? Humorous AND relevant!

I think all programmers enjoy walks, but they should really comp you for the coffee.

comment How many types of programming languages are there?
However, if you say that the act of using a data structure creates a new intermediate language then you could also argue a new language is born in every algorithm (all operations are necessarily done on a data structure), and with reduction, a new language is born in every line of code. I think you mean something else though but I'm not quite sure I understand yet?

@CodexArcanum could you give me an example of a language where you program by composing parallel processes together? This sounds fascinating.

comment How many types of programming languages are there?
Well I have learned that something like Prolog and C are fundamentally different, so I was thinking each of them corresponds to a different kind of programming language, and I was hoping to get a grasp of how many kinds.
