Do people in other countries program in English?

I was browsing Stack Overflow’s programming section and came across an interesting topic asking if programmers in other countries code in English. This answer from a Canadian is hilarious:

I’m from Canada, but live in the States now.

It took me a while to get used to writing boolean variables with an “Is” prefix, instead of the “Eh” suffix that Canadians use when programming.

For example:

MyObj.IsVisible

MyObj.VisibleEh

I should name my boolean variables that way from now on.
