Shared publicly -a quick tip for programers.

when can you trust a programer when he use math jargons?

if you hear programer talking about math, such as category theory, directed graph, lambda calculus, and so on, 99% of the time they have no idea what they are talking about.

when can you actually trust a programer's mouth when math term is mentioned?

check the guy's publication. If, he actually is a mathematician, publish in math journals, or, he is a active member of professional math community such as mathoverflow, then, you can trust his mouth when he uses math jargons.

else, the typical lispers, haskellers, git, unixers, scala, clojure, you can tell them to fuck their mom with their math.

Oh, on the other hand, when can you see a mathematician who actually know a thing or 2 about real world programing? When pigs fly.
