bloatboy: They would have to be. Successful ones that is. A level of patience and serenity I will never know.Any time I start to edit anything in python, the whole whitespace issue gets me seeing red and before I know it, another PC is out the window.
MrEricSir: "More pull requests" = more patches to some shiatty script. Not better, just buggier.
Thrag: I've also got to say it's idiotic to classify developers by language. If you are a good developer, you are a developer who just happens to be working in language X at the moment. It's like calling builders "Hammer builders" or "Screwdriver builders" depending on if their current project uses nails or screws.If someone really wants to call themselves a "language X programmer" go ahead since what you are saying is that all you can do is program that one language. Someone who can only code what they are told to in a single language. A step below an actual software developer. A software developer knows multiple languages and can adapter to new ones easily.
The Googles Do Nothing: So Python programmers are too lazy too figure something out on their own? Idiots.
SkittlesAreYum: Is it weird that, for the most part, I don't mind Java? Why does everyone else hate it?
aerojockey: Python developers are less likely to be ascared of version control. Java programmers are like, "waa, I don't want to use GIT, I just want a nice zip file".
ryarger: SkittlesAreYum: Is it weird that, for the most part, I don't mind Java? Why does everyone else hate it?Java is the middle child. For those who go back to C/C++ days, Java is a straightjacket nanny of a language that insists on cleaning up after you even if you know better. It also has this giant virtual machine between you and the hardware, slowing everything down. For those in the current generation, Java is a dinosaur of a language that forces you to type everything, lacks functional and aspect-oriented features and looks and feels way to much like your father's programming languages (C/C++).The other answer is that it has an enormous market share in the enterprise business and is the #1 money-generating all-purpose language in the world by a huge margin. This immediately makes it not cool for anyone who is coding for pleasure or other non-monetary reasons./I've read criticisms of C from early '70s assembly coders that are eerily similar to criticisms against Java by early '90s C coders.
skozlaw: / Java and Flash. The two worst things to happen to computing since Microsoft Bob.
MrEricSir: Major internet services like Gmail and Twitter are written in Java
Mentat: Perl for life biatches!
aerojockey: Python developers are less likely to be ascared of version control. Java programmers are like, "waa, I don't want to use GIT, I just want a nice zip jar file".
