daveinsurgent: Java is a fine language, it is more forgiving and a bit easier to be productive in if you've invested the time. I like it for server-side web development because of Maven, Spring, Hibernate, JAX-RS and so on.

My beef with Java is the APIs. I always seem to find that there are five different, standard APIs for what I want to do, three of them are deprecated, and one of them doesn't really meet my needs in a subtle way that I won't figure out until half-way through the project. This result in much more than the usual amount of time lost sifting through documentation. And the documentation sucks, but that's hardly unique to Java.

Oh to be programming in C++ again, instead of this bloat ware Java shiat. Where every ass hole has decided they need a different frame work, because it does some minor and obscure function slightly better then the current three farking frame works we all ready use, and every piece of shiat add on is working with a different standard.

I went from BASIC, to some COBOL and VIsualBasic, a bit of C++, then scripting, , and overall, they are all the same, it's just a question of knowing the frigging commands and proper codes. It's all about logic.

Now, when needed, I tend to grab any code, and without having learned it, figuring how it works and tweaking it is far from being difficult.

/learned how to program using a pencil and cards....

Karac: Allen-Bradley's programming language is the most annoying one I've ever used.

But, he did write TRON to watchdog the MCP.

I heard Ada Lovelace only boned Charles Babbage to claim a feminist victory in computer programming.

This is exactly how I would imagine the inventor of C++ to look:
