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.

-1 The relevance of fast typing is how complete/accurate can the result of your thinking be translated into code. If your idea takes, lets say 100 lines of code and you type SLOW by the time you finish, your idea will be diluted, because your mind will spend precious "thinking" cycles hunting down the correct keys. Something similar happens with the mouse. Compare Ctrl-S vs. taking the mouse, move it to "File" menu, click, move it again to find Save option, click it again, move your hand back to the keyboard. azarask.in/blog/post/help-your-train-of-thought-is-sacred

@Greg You'll apply those refactoring faster if you use the shorcuts from the keyboard.

I get it. So, what advantage would recursion have? Simplicity?

comment What programming skill do you use most often that you are terrible at?
This happens to me also. When it is possible ( and feasible ) I do "SELECT * FROM TABLE WHERE some_simple_condition" and then put everything in an array and perform the selection there. I know a very complex query would do it better, but sometimes I just don't quite get SQL and all its inner joins :P

comment What are the things Java got right?
Dean, initially Java was not open source. It was until version 1.6 when it became Open Source. By then Java had already taken over the world.

comment Do you think natively compiled languages have reached their EOL?
I've heard this before, but why should it be compiled each time it runs by the JIT? Why do the compilation the JIT did is not persistent?

comment What are the things Java got right?
It's amazing how Java make all these things to work together ( not that they didn't exist before, but they never become mainstream ) It create a paradigm shift sooo big in the industry that even those who previously criticized JVM came after with exactly the SAME!! concept ( bytecode + runtime )

comment What are the things Java got right?
I agree with all but one. The bean concept. It never really took of ( as expected ) and it is more a convention than a language feature. Still one of the most useful.

Me too, but there is a very large number of programmers out there that think different. See: stackoverflow.com/questions/385913/…
