comment Is 'pirate version' standard jargon for unreleased builds in the computing industry?
I was hoping to get some experts with a long experience time in the industry to report if they ever heard the jargon. I wondered if this would be a valid question for this site before asking it.

@RobertHarvey We acknowledge that the term is kind of pejorative, but never spent much thought on alternatives. I'm not enforcing, just suggesting other uses.

@RobbieDee You are completely right. It's a synonym for alpha version. I'll try to change the culture with that!

Our internal usage has nothing to do with pirated software. You don't say you have a pirated version of software X, you say you have a pirated copy. We have build 1.00b01, for example. A pirate version for the next version would be 1.00bNULL, or even 1.00b01 (a development build with new code but that haven't had the version counter increased yet).

comment What is a proper way to chain instructions if previous one is ok
I use this pattern too. Clear and simple, easy enough to follow and understand.

comment What should I do when I've already waited too long between commits?
git add -p is your best friend here. I fell in love with that feature. This way I can commit my coding standard modifications in separate commits, and keep the relevant code changes isolated.

You do realize that most of us doesn't know "well" even our native languages, right?

comment Is it a common practice to minimize JavaScript usage when building a website?
It's only profesional to support all use cases. If you missed it, that's alright, everyone errs once in a while, but neglecting them is a different problem. I'm all in for developing websites 100% WITHOUT JS, and after making it work, add the JS to streamline tasks and make the UX better.
