i have two questions. first: how exactly does assembly output relate to moisture vaporators? second: what on earth is an ""alpha programmer""? i do hope walter has not subscribed to the pseudoscientific views of mysogynists.

Someone answered that question on the ycombinator thread. They included this video link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eUH2_n8jE70&t=0m30s
 second: what on earth is an ""alpha programmer""? i do hope walter has

I am not aware of any association between "alpha" and "man" because I hear both "alpha male" and "alpha female" in e.g. nature documentaries. Ali Aside: There was a thread on these forums where somebody was unhappy with the word "female" in "female programmers". I think they thought it was not a word suitable for humans. Well, I live in California and I can report that "female" is what these people use everywhere to mean "woman". Of course we can still argue whether it's suitable but it's in at least Californian English as of today.

It isn't really accurate in nature either and when used with people it tends to be exaggerated to the point of being totally absurd.

Vaporators run on compiled code, so do understand the binary code of vaporators, you'll need a disassembler. I wanted to make looking at the binary code easy and fun.
 second: what on earth is an ""alpha programmer""?
The top tier of programmers. In my career, I've noticed a very strong correlation between the top tier of programmers, and programmers who had a solid understanding of assembler code and what their compiler was doing.

Gender never occurred to me when speaking about alpha programmers.
