In English, there are names for vertical & horizontal directions: up (↑), down (↓), left (←), right (→). AFAIK there aren't names for diagonal directions. Suppose someone could make them up. Of course, others would have to use them too. Maybe lup (↖), rup (↗), lown (↙) and rown (↘) :-)

Conscientiousness Is Important Too

quoted by Charles Iliya Krempeaux on Fri Sep 13th, 2013

You can go far in the beginning with intelligence, but obsessive-compulsiveness may be needed to keep going further after that, and to excel. For some things, intelligence is necessary but not sufficient.

For software engineering, learning all the abstraction leaks you can, is part of what engineers consider mastery, in the field.

Abstraction Leaks

quoted by Charles Iliya Krempeaux on Sat Sep 7th, 2013

Let's make a programming language where everything is a set. No loops. But not functions either. You have to construct functions from sets.
