comment Writing programs without graphical IDE
In fact you don't even need a text editor either. In UNIX you can write code with cat in Windows with more obviously you have to write it right the first time. Of course, real programmers use butterflies ;) xkcd.com/378

comment Pythonic Java. Yes, or no?
@StasM and @delnan and this is exactly my point. The language most help to perform the work. For instance, Perl using the access modifier as the first character of the name makes it easier to create cryptic programs. But I think in this case Python helps, but situation like this ( getting undexpected indent errors ) do happen.

Probably you should participate in one of these hackathons yourself and learn from there :) The idea sounds great

comment Does syntax really matter in a programming language?
To understand lisp you first have to understand.. oh.. sorry, wrong thread. To understand Lisp just toogle the source code with: %s/[()]//g

comment Is there any reason to use “plain old data” classes?
@Konrad If that would be the case, then all OO systems would have only one class named "System" with all the methods in it. OO is about objects, not state, state is just one feature objects have. There is also a very important concept in OO which is abstraction. You don't have to list all the object characteristics if you don't need them. Depending on the scenario you might or not need an operation for Bootle

By hand with the power of vi regexp :) %s/([{};])/ \1/ or something like that. It took me a while :( though

comment What's the “normal” range for typing speed for developers?
Indeed, the problem comes while you get that automation :) - from 0 to 40 wpm I would say.

comment What's the “normal” range for typing speed for developers?
Oh, that link. It's not mine of course but Aza Raskin's. It doesn't talk about typing specifically, but the way our mind works. Hunting down keys ( when you don't touch type ) breaks your train of thought. You have to stop thinking on your problem to think: "Where is tha 'A'?, where is the 'm'?, where is the '@'" My point is, if you type slow, the precious product of your thought will be in diluted by the time you end up writing it. If you're still not convinced try this: change your keyboard layout from QWERTY to DVORAK and force your self to use it all day long

comment What's the “normal” range for typing speed for developers?
@Pierre I get your point. And just to make it clear, I don't underestimate the value of thinking either. It is way more relevant thinking than typing, but when you have the idea, is also important code it fast.. About your focusing problem what has helped me in the past is TDD because it helps to stop worrying about the "perfect" method, and focus in the method/function you have to test right now. It makes me write 2-10 lines long methods which will be improved in the next test. Give it a try ( if you haven't ). I've changed the link of the website thanks.
