comment Fastest native C++ multi-platform compiler & IDE & debugger
You are going to have to give us more details about what you are trying to build. There is no singular "fastest" anything in this field.

comment Past If statements Arrays, loops… Now what?
@JörgWMittag: They'll have some common techniques and demonstrations of typical programs, but anything non trivial is going to require a large degree of learned human judgment, which as of 2013, still cannot be mechanized.

comment How flexible can hardware get?
also x86 processors today aren't 'really' x86 any more, they have an x86 translation front end on top of a proprietary risc core.

comment what is the best way to ensure accountability in code checkins?
I have found the term "accountability" to be a buzzword these days. What does accountable mean? How do you expect a technical solution to hold them "accountable"? Will a robot be dispatched to go shoot whoever checked in the code?

comment Fastest Haskell library sort implementation
There is no one sort to rule them all. Different sorts will be best for different kinds of data.

comment Should I use JSON just to use JSON
Rarely is using blah for the sake of using blah a wise plan. Look at the things JSON is good for, and then consider whether its worth using JSON for those specific aspects.

"totally random" is a very deep rabbit hole.

comment Open Source License that prevents re-selling
Do you not want them to share it whatsoever, or just that if they share they cannot charge a fee?

comment Is the carriage-return char considered obsolete
@ZJR: postels law is dangerous: be very careful when employing the robustness principle, because it frequently backfires. The html parsing mess we are still in can be attributed to that mindset. When a program accepts malformed input, its behavior as a result soon becomes expected and depended upon behavior, and any changes later that treat the malformed input differently, or not at all, while being technically correct, is often considered defective.

comment I failed FizzBuzz, would you hire me?
Improving oneself takes place on time scales longer than an hour. It's not important to the recruiter.

comment I failed FizzBuzz, would you hire me?
you also don't print out the number when it's neither a multiple of 3 nor 5. The fact that you didn't mention that either in posting this question would also make very skeptical.

comment Benefits of TOGAF or similar?
Lookingatthe TOGAF website for 10 seconds reminds me too much of stuff like HL7, CDA and other absurd specifications that are an enormous hassle.

comment Can I maintain copyright of the name/logo of an otherwise copyleft (GPL) application?
Another example is Firefox, which is under the GPL compatible MPL, but because of trademark issues, is released by Debian as Iceweasel.

comment I want to build a Virtual Machine, are there any good references?
@MichaelStum: I think you should find some interesting problem to solve utilizing your VM. That will give you a lot of direction in what needs to be in your VM. You could try making a virtual PIC or Arduino or something.

comment why not use unmanaged safe code in c#
I've written plenty of code over the years that sometimes crashed or had memory leaks, that I was pretty sure didn't have memory leaks or risks of crashes.

comment Using machine learning to aim mirrors in a solar array?
The fact that you have hundreds of mirrors is not a big deal, the behavior for each individual mirror doesn't depend on its neighbors. You're intentionally making this problem harder than it really is.

comment Is thıs code efficient always for finding array[max]?
@delnan: I would not call his claim of O(n log n) running time to be a 'gross misrepresentation of big O'. This is exactly the sort of stuff big O is used for, and he cited it properly.
