comment SourceTree app, how do I know what is my current branch?
@Isuru I don't know. I'd guess more or less random, no real meaning can be ascribed to them.

comment Object Oriented Programming in JavaScript. Is there life without it?
@Stefaan "Classes" are containers that data is injected into which is only accessible to certain functions ("methods") within that container. This can be modeled perfectly using functions and aspects of closures, it's the same idea. Maybe you're thinking of deeply nested trees of callbacks within callback; if so nobody said that's either good or OOP.

@Robert Just because it's in the browser doesn't mean it's trivial. I find Google Maps a perfect example of a very non-trivial app/API that uses Javascript OOP quite well.

@Robert I hereby give permission to use that comment as answer, if a code sample is added. I'm not fluent enough in Javascript to quickly whip one up correctly at the moment, as I'm a little busy. :)

comment Object Oriented Programming in JavaScript. Is there life without it?
Javascript does its "OOP" using functions and closures. Private methods are realized by declaring them the right way in the right scope. Yes, it's different, but it's possible. It doesn't have to be "sorta OOP", you just need to apply it correctly. In fact, it helps to wrap your head around Javascript's way of OOP, since it gives you a new perspective on what "classic OOP" in other languages is and how little you actually need to implement it; one language construct (function) is sufficient.

comment How can a beginning programmer begin to learn and apply testing best practices when developing software?
Testing is asserting that your code works as it should or telling you that it doesn't. Debugging is the activity of finding a bug (discovered during testing) and fixing it.

comment Why do we still use a programming language instead of using just SQL?
Essentially, "why isn't there only one language for everything?" Why do we still need SQL to get data out of a database?!
