Welcome to the Lounge

   

For discussing anything related to a software developer's life but is not for programming questions. Got a programming question?

The Lounge is rated Safe For Work. If you're about to post something inappropriate for a shared office environment, then don't post it. No ads, no abuse, and no programming questions. Trolling, (political, climate, religious or whatever) will result in your account being removed.

Perhaps your definition of the word "many" differs from mine.

Any article that uses the word many to describe proportion of acceptance or rejection of certain notion is of course doomed. Never use many if you are trying to impose a presumably generalized opinion.

As to programming expanding your mental horizons, it's commonly accepted. Do some research.

No it does not. Define mental horizon.


B. Clay Shannon wrote:
I think you meant "lose" (the opposite of gain, or win) not "loose" which is the opposite of "tight."

Are you gonna talk about or grammar and language or content? (Hey loo, gonna is not even a word and this thing which I typed is wrong)


B. Clay Shannon wrote:
A major point of the syllabus is that there are myriad ever-changing technologies, but that there are certain basics/constants that are necessary.


No. Nothing is necessary. Nothing is mandatory. The whole presumption is wrong. If you were to talk about extreme basics of programming regardless of technology, only thing you are left with is Maths. Yes one can debate a lot on this but everything in the end would lead to Maths.
