The sad thing is that this probably happened in a mid-level neighborhood. If it was a poor slum the police wouldn't care if the kids walked 5 miles under snow and surrounded by gang members.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Hmmm... I've never been interested in moving to the US again (I studied there) but with those salaries I as well give it a try... where do I sign up for this H1B1 thing?

If that's the case we should all go and learn Scada because of, you know, nuclear plants and that sort of stuff which are more important to me than a stupid car that can't drive in heavy rain.
Programming is only a tool to learn other concepts which are basics of the CS/Software Engineering curricula, like algorithms, data structures and much more stuff which are not programming. If what you want is to learn programming, study something else.
Wow, I mean, I don't even...
(make request ^action hello)
(request ^action hello)
(write |Hello World!| (crlf))
var a = "1";
var b = 1;
a + b;
Imagine the crapfest a complex application would mean.
P.S: For any JS fanboy, here's the Python way of handling this:
TypeError: unsupported operand type(s) for +: 'int' and 'str'
Not any more with lambdas:
button.setOnActionEvent(e -> doSomethingWith(e));
Mind commenting about TFA and saving your useless criticism for yourself?
Besides, I'm pretty sure the slashdot crowd builds their own rigs anyway.
So what? Because you're not interested it means everyone shouldn't be? Find something/somewhere else to hate.
When you search for jobs for developers, Java/.Net devs are in general better paid than the "cool" script-kiddies. There are also some C/C++ jobs but not as many. I've also seen a decline in RoR jobs lately, so there you go.
OTOH I've been developing software for the last 15 years using different languages/platforms and I don't see where all this hate for Java comes from. I mean, it's everywhere, it's free, it has great tools and libraries, lots of documentation and lots of people working on or with it and big names behind it. Name one language/platform that has all of this and we can have a talk.
Where's Step #3? WHERE'S IT?!? I can't continue without it?!?
Have this guy seen "normal people" use a computer? There are some people so uninterested in the thing (even when is their primary work tool) that they can't be bothered to learn so simple stuff as mouse dragging or keyboard shortcuts.
Hell, I've seen people using Spreadsheet software for 10 years without learning how to use formulas. Don't even try to show them what all that HTML gibberish is.
And Spreadsheet software is a pretty good introduction tool for programming.
I want a PipBoy damn it!
