comment Connotation of term autodidact
@DavidM - this is the sentence. "I believe the framework was developed internally because the engineer in question is an autodidact, and that at this time he didn't knew a framework which will satisfy his need." And I don't mean to derail my primary question, but my initial take was negative and then mollified to neutral.

comment Connotation of term autodidact
I'm not. I ran across it in a question on Programmers. My initial take is that it was used in an ambiguous context. I couldn't tell if they were trying to dish out a left-handed compliment or they were "merely stating facts"

comment What do you call someone who is always looking for loopholes?
Valid word, but the nuance behind circumventor doesn't convey the same negative connotation as the OP implied in their question.
