comment Why can't I understand Java?
@Cal: One does not have to be a math wiz to be a good programmer. My school teacher actually took me to a corner and advised me to take up Commerce instead of Computer Science because my math and physics grades were low (but I scored high on the logic test which was a test the school conducted to decide whether a person was good enough to study computer science). I chose CS anyway, went on to become one of the top three programmers in class and because of CS, my math and physics grades also improved coz thinking logically to write programs made me understand how to solve math and learn physics

comment Is it imaginable to teach a machine how to program itself to a defined specification?
@florian: We ourselves are machines who have learnt how to do programming (assuming aliens/god created us :-) ). Of course we haven't yet acquired the ability to program DNA sequences etc, so if you create a machine that has to learn how to program eventually, you have to program it to "evolve" and eventually learn how it itself was programmed.

Really? Isn't there anything that can do something like image.position(x,y) where x and y are the coordinates on the browser?

comment Does syntax really matter in a programming language?
Which makes me wonder, why did people have to vary syntax style to such an extent in the first place? nrecursions.blogspot.in/2014/06/another-new-syntax.html

So is a laptop still the only mobile device which is good enough for programming? I was looking for something that's good enough. Hope there's a good device at least now in 2014

Wow! I'm surprised (and happy) to hear about the Nokia N900. Are there any better devices now that can be used for programming?

comment What would be the market life of a JVM based software framework?
As of now I'm assuming Spring is one such framework that's likely to stick around for a while. Just worried about the increased popularity of Vaadin and the fact that Groovy and Scala are hot on the market right now.
