I've... seen things you people wouldn't believe... [laughs] Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those... moments... will be lost in time, like [coughs] tears... in... rain. Time... to die...

comment How to get Object Oriented Programming Concepts?
Don't forget IPaymentProcessorFactoryAdapterFacadeVisitorTemplateMethodImpl, because being Java I hope IPaymentProcessorFactoryAdapterFacadeVisitorTemplateMethod to be an abstract interface.

comment How to get Object Oriented Programming Concepts?
"OOP to me means only messaging, local retention and protection and hiding of state-process, and extreme late-binding of all things. It can be done in Smalltalk and in LISP. There are possibly other systems in which this is possible, but I’m not aware of them." Alan Kay

comment Apps being portable
Its funny, because The Eclise IDE has those characteristics (eclipse.org/downloads) (all it's in a "selfcontained" folder, with no installer) I guess, it could be called a portable app, but no one calls it that. By the way Im not trying to say this answer is wrong, I actually upvoted, Im just saying it's curious

comment Apps being portable
There are applications that write all their information in a file located inside the application folder, (instead of writing somewhere else, and/or the registry), could those be called portable because I can copy the application folder, paste it in another compatible machine and it will run (no installation required)?

comment What are the advantages of using LISP and Haskell? Will they make me a better programmer?
@jozefg You said it: Languages are tools, this hurt a little to say. It's completely true, but it's still hard to accept. and If a language is making you focus on the language, not abstraction, algorithms, or data structures, it's a bad language for a beginner. Great advice.

@jozefg Don't be sorry. And yes I don't know Lisp or Haskell that's why I used references for my answer, but I think, the most important thing to understand is that programming languages are just tools, in the end the hardware couldn't care less in wich high or low level language you're coding on, programming languages are tools for humans. We try to pick the ones that better suits our needs, and I think my answer does answer the question that the OP is asking.

@AndresF. Let me put this easily, I don't now how to program in Golfscript either, (golfscript.com/golfscript) but I can see that is not the right choice if I want to develop a web app.

I think this answer is great, The real benefits comes from learning languages with different philosophy. Then you can have your own opinion about the way a program should be written. Also you don't need to learn a programming language to find out what is good for, there are a lot of resources you can review in order to do that.

@JimmyHoffa There is a new framework by apple for developing games called Sprite Kit, I want to use that. (And we better stop this now, because it's getting pretty long, if you want we can talk about this later on chat).
