While you're all out having fun at the party tonight, I'll be catching up
with some family that I've sorely missed while on a rather demanding
project for the last 2-ish months. What you should also do it goad one

Here's what we know so far:
75% of you pretend you know what you're talking about in public. Judging by
some of the respondents, you are more modest to internet forms than in real
Resoundingly you all support ruby over python (sad face!) with 50% wanted a
ruby class, and 38% explicitly NOT wanting a python class. (A reminder

Nobody gives a shit about TDD. Or Haskell.

Despite being admittedly novice programmers, ~40% of you think you can
learn to create mobile apps from scratch without knowledge of java, and
then attach those to a web service. I see you all like challenges!
You are overwhelmingly interested in git, and are tepid about vim.
So, go fill out this form, and let's teach you some tappa tappa at the
codings so you've got something to do while you're snowed in.
