comment Is learning C essential for Computer Science?
For the record, AI training was traditionally done with C's egghead companion through the 70s and 80s, LISP, but the answer is on the head.

comment Are there any languages to replace or compete with Javascript?
@Aaronaught And then the java/dotnet camp will come back and say that unit tests are easy to write in a static context if you adhere to good OO principles, and always code to an interface. And round and round we go. The holy war doesn't invalidate the question, like the answers suggest.

comment Developer thinks they do not have to follow standard development process
I don't think that this satisfies the (admittedly high) community requirements for objectivity of questions on programmers.

comment How much functional programming expertise can programmers be expected to have?
Question is no longer about whether the information exists, but if anyone has expert experience in using it; a verifiable fact not based upon opinion.

comment How much functional programming expertise can programmers be expected to have?
Note that the question isn't about what concepts they are "supposed" to know, but rather what concepts they can be "expected" to know -- IE, what can I use without having to worry that a reasonable programmer will understand what I was doing. And I think that's a fair question. (Just as there are concepts of procedural or logical programming one can assume any programmer will know.) The people who do maintenance on my code will not always be the team I currently have: I must, in some sense, write towards an imaginary audience.

The answer to this question is going to be super-locality specific.

Any suggestion as to how I can convince them that they just don't know C#, when they think lambda functions are black magic?

comment How much functional programming expertise can programmers be expected to have?
I do honestly think in this case that my excessive documentation isn't because the code itself is unreadable, but because I've lost trust. Under other circumstances I would think these areas would need little to no explanation. But this is a very good answer.

Touche. I have been dutifully rebuked.
