I mostly do Erlang and CoffeeScript these days and am the author of "Building Web Applications in Erlang" and "Programming HTML5 Applications" Both of which were published by O'Reilly.

I am also very interested in the question, How do I become a great developer and spend a fair bit of time thinking about it.

I am also a compulsive writer. I love writing as it forces me to really think about what is important and how to make ideas seem more concreate

comment Will an Iranian or Kuwaiti visa or stamp in my passport pose a problem on a future visit to Israel?
I think the check with the Israeli Embassy is probably the best advice you can have.

comment How to successfully haggle / bargain in markets
Also remember for most things there are 37 people in the market area selling more or less exactly the same thing, so walking don the way and talking to the next guy is a valid option.

comment American citizen, resident in Israel, getting student visa for France
I would assume you just have to go to the French Embassy in Tel Aviv and apply. As for Israel if you qualify for Aliyah you can get residency and citizenship pretty easily (I know I did)

comment Getting from NYC to NC on trip to the US
At this point I am leaning to the train. I'm pretty sure I don't want to drive that far with 2 little kids, and well like most kids mine LOVE trains

Watch out for crazy drivers, both Israelis and Palestinians can drive like mad men. Otherwise have a great time.
