Supporting both Flash and HTML5 is probably the safest way.

comment How do I prove to management that our programmers could work more productively?
"stopped taking his ideas for "increased productivity" serious after his "I graduated less than a year ago" statement.": I've met developers who stopped considering new ideas because they were experienced and thought they knew everything. Obviously, there has been nothing useful invented in software development during the past ten years.

comment How can you explain “beautiful code” to a non-programmer?
I've used the language analogy a lot in the past: "I'm working with this ugly code..." "Wait, what do you mean by ugly?" "u see, its write liek that"

comment Suggestions for CSS frameworks?
It's worth noting the last version of Foundation isn't compatible with IE7. It starts at IE8.

comment How do I convince my boss (and other devs) to use/consider Unobtrusive JavaScript
Hey, my company sticks with Classic ASP because ASP.NET is "too new", yet I still managed to push Knockout in our code. Try to see what their concerns really are and see if you can make a change.

comment Is it fair to ask a team to start using CoffeeScript?
"so long as it helps of course" is the key here. Especially as we are talking about a language switch, from a high-level language to another high-level language. It will be hard to prove CoffeeScript would help.

comment How to convince my teammates to follow some basic rules
Good answer; starting with something easy to use and that they probably already know will be much easier than force them to read documentation. Besides, Dropbox works wonders on anyone unfamiliar with versioning.

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.

comment How long can a programmer concentrate in a day?
Could this be moved to workplace.stackexchange.com instead of being closed ? The question and answers so far are interesting.

"I suggest you stop trying to craft a overly protective license": it's his work, he doesn't have to share it if he doesn't want to.

comment How do you tell if advice from a senior developer is bad?
Are you sure you're objective? It sounds like you're sympathizing with the senior.

@Martin: Or the senior's advice was really bad.
