comment Can functional programming be used to develop a full enterprise application?
Haskell is used in the industry, but so is HTML. Is Haskell used to develop the kind of applications that many think it can't? 3D games, large GUI applications, large-scale web servers?

comment How do you organize highly customized software?
@aKzenT That's why I left 2 and 3 for you to choose. If the kind of changes needed to make customer1's project support customer2's needs through configuration is going to make the code unmaintainable then don't do 3.

comment Why can't the IT industry deliver large, faultless projects quickly as in other industries?
Both A380 and Boeing 787 are planes. Planes have large and complex software installed in them that interacts with the things that the "other industries" are building. Who knows, maybe their were years late mainly because of software issues.

comment Why should I push if I'm working alone in a local repository?
+1, I'd definitely do the same in your case. What do you do if you forgot to push at home and are now at work?

I seriously don't think this example app is reliable. Reliability and stability are not necessarily two separate things.

comment What should be the next thing after being accepted as a contributor to an Open Source Project?
+1 for sharing your research: people who join an open source project without having a more specific aim than "I'd like to contribute" are usually not contributing. I once did that myself :D I joined because the project was in the language I like and only when I was given a task I realized I hate this project :P

Start by picking a small task from the todo list and learn only what you need to finish it.

comment Should programming languages be strict or loose?
Also, when you read $_GET[key] you know nothing. You end up grepping the whole project just to know whether key is a constant or not. Such thing saves 0.5 seconds of writing and takes 20 seconds to read.
