Currently building and maintaining a few little projects using Python, Java, Android, and PostgreSQL.
StackOverflow's high question standards work for me. I keep finding the answer to my question while writing the question. At least twice, I was almost ready to hit "post", tried one more thing, and ended up switching to self-answered before posting.
Also, if my number of asked questions seems low, that's ignoring so many questions that were already answered here.
- strong types
- named parameters
- UTF-8 support
- multi-line strings
- defined behavior
- cheap abstractions
- quick data types
- succinct anonymous functions
- explicit code blocks
- "Do Something Anyway"
- method chaining on mutable objects
- bare numerics
- I use the "Skip" button a ton in reviews.
- I vote to reject super-trivial edits, or ones that make it worse.
- I vote against closure, or for reopening, questions about technologies that are strongly related to programming. They might be better on some other site, but that merits a suggestion to the OP in a comment, not a close vote.
- I downvote answers that do not address the question asked (in some way). The title is not the question.
- I search for duplicates for all questions that sound like they might have been asked before.
- I feel a compulsion to downvote anyone who complains about downvotes, but I try my best to be good
