comment Effect of denormalizing
How can a single account be related to multiple users if you get rid of the UserAccount table? It is true you only need this intermediate table in many-to-many situations, but you don't have the luxury of placing the account id in the user table.

comment What would be good factual arguments to convince high level management to consider functional programming?
Based on your comment, ""Which arguments can be used to support WHEN trying to convince it's a good thing". This question is just asking for a list of benefits and references about FP which is off-topic.

What business arguments did management give you for the languages you currently use?

@DVK - you need to provide more insight into how management is controlling the language(s) used in your company. In most cases, management has little input in this area because they leave it up to teams and their leaders.

What business are you in? If you do contract programming and consulting, functional programming may be a buzz-word that management may think will impress your clients.

comment Can BDD and Lean methodologies be used together?
What is wrong with the way you're writing requirements that impedes project progress? You may need to connect more dots before getting to the BDD suggestion especially with someone who may not really know what it is.

Good point. Two people are talking about solutions when they haven't agreed on the problem.

comment Non-Object Oriented Programming in Object Oriented Language
Add a feature that displays the formula you've entered and then add a square root function (Don't do this first, that would be cheating.) and let us know what you think.

comment A very simple database system with JSON
Seems like putting some sort of load on this wouldn't be that difficult. Probably 7 lines of code.

comment “Design patterns”, “Reactive programming”, etc…How do these terms fit together?
A CS degree should prepare students to learn this on their own. Spend the extra week on algorithms and data structures and leave the agile flavor of the month to the workshops.

comment Whiteboard “testing” during an interview: legitimate way to back up your (whiteboard) code?
@Yamikuronue - running out of space happens all the time, but in the answer Kate mentioned you'd be expected to erase the line and correct it. In a collaborative environment, everything isn't done in the IDE/text editor. If you team leader is going to write things on the board and/or ask a team member to do the same, that's part of the job.
