One of the advantages of speaking two languages is an increased ability to filter in the important information and ignore the irrelevant one. Turns out that coders can do the same, better.

As someone struggling with learning a new language, the issue of noise vs meaning is a dreadfully familiar one.

Just trying to figure out which keywords to hold on to exhausts me.
