comment Have there been disputes when software identifies genders with a boolean?
@YannisRizos: I find it unpleasant that, as a man, you would close a question that matters a lot to people who don't identify as either male or female, and that could matter to women as well, just because you don't care about it. Especially as it has been upvoted.

comment Have there been disputes when software identifies genders with a boolean?
There are actually been disputes when using booleans due to the fact people who don't identify as female or male felt ignored or rejected - they were forced to choose a gender (see google+). The use of true/false is less of an issue.

comment Should I bother to develop for JavaScript disabled?
You should also consider the contents of your website. A website focusing on displaying data doesn't need Javascript, but I've yet to see a game working without it.

comment Is it efficient to use the number pad in your programming
@dotancohen: most of us do, yes. It makes accessing special characters easier (é, è, ...) which is needed if you have to type any kind of documentation or textual content.

comment What do you name functions/variables/etc when you can't think of a good name?
It might not be something that's supposed to be used in the code. For exemple, you might have to log something, or split operations in parts to get a view from the debugger. Or you might have to give a fake user a fake name. I usually just go with chicken in those cases, as it's easy to find and remove.

comment Is java a good start to learn OOP?
@kevin: exactly. Besides, you can (and should) always learn different paradigms and languages from different sources; a Java passionate might not be as good a teacher if they focus on, say, Haskell; it also gives you various points of view.
