comment Discussing a dead person: Present or past tense: His name is or was john? He is or was my cousin?
This question is not quite about the English language perhaps, but I think: Use the present tense except where the reference/context/emphasis is particularly about the person's absence. "Look at the one in this picture: he is my cousin, his name is John." However, "We had been close. He passed away last year. He was my cousin. His name was John."

Programming for "web applications" is also normal, nothing abnormal about it. The rest is just "non-Web programming."

Face | Off? oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/face-off -- It's not slang, it's "Chiefly North American" usage. 1. "Take up an attitude of confrontation, especially at the start of a fight or game" 2. "A direct confrontation between two people are groups."
