comment Why is a linked list implementation considered linear?
@Steve314 I am aware that English words have multiple usages. This question specifically asks if "non-linear" is a common usage (implied in Computer Science) to refer to certain data structures. It isn't, and neither is linear in the sense that he means. If we talked about a linked list being linear, we are specifically referring to the characteristics of the algorithm used to traverse it.

I would add "someone else has probably had this problem before".

comment Why is a linked list implementation considered linear?
We don't use the word linear to talk about computer memory. Perhaps the word you are looking for there is "contiguous". Linear, constant, exponential all describe graph characteristics of an algorithim's performance. See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_o_notation

comment Would refusing to use a PHP framework be a bad idea?
You can learn a lot about programming from a framework; ignorance is not a point of a view.

comment How to build completely modular web applications
@Robert Harvey To me this seems like more of a pattern than a framework. Maybe I'm missing something but I can't see why I can't do this with inheritance in ASP.NET MVC.

comment Unix as opposed to Windows (Java and C++)
@user997112 C++ has a number of platform/compiler specific issues; my advice was really more with Java in mind. C++ you really want to get some programming experience on that platform.

comment Do you need to know Java before trying Scala
For just about every modern platform it takes a lot longer to learn the standard library than to learn the language syntax. So there is a benefit in knowing Java libraries if you are trying to learn Scala.

comment Unix as opposed to Windows (Java and C++)
Most likely they are not concerned at all with experience in programming Java on UNIX. What they want is someone with experience as a user of UNIX, who knows how to work in that environment and run and support their Java programs there. I think Kevin is on the right track.
