comment How is the “Infinite Monkey Theorem” different to use than Genetic Programming to solve problems?
Got it, but still they have in common this trait of letting randomness take charge isn't ?

comment 30 minutes to explain programming to a 15 year old
@Dexter But that's was in group isn't ? I mean, one adult in front of 30 - 40 students. As I understood it, this would be 4-8 adults taking turns to explain to this single girl what they do for a living. English is not my native language though, so I might be missing something :)

comment 30 minutes to explain programming to a 15 year old
I'm very very curious to know under what situation a single 15 year old girl, have to listen for hours the work experience from grownups. Sounds like some heir that has to know what all her vassals do :P

comment Preferred lambda syntax?
Really? I didn't know that. I have seen this in Smalltalk and Javascript before, and in both, they were part of the parameters. It was until Ruby and the Groovy that I saw the form you mention. Anyway, interesting +1

comment Delphi doesn't have Lambda Expressions and I'm a Delphi programmer, what am I missing out on?
They are not cryptic nor hard to read. No, no wait a minute, that's exactly what I thought the first time I saw one! ¬¬ You just have to get use to them. On the other hand, I had the same problem with array literals, ternary operator, switch statement and pretty much anything the first time. Once you get used to them, you find the exact opposite effect, they are clean and expressive.

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 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
