    This is awesome. Rust wearing full plate armor to dinner is hilarious… Also what’s up with Scala? lmao

    My experience in going from C to C++ was different: if you’re not converting everything from mallocs with custom addressing systems to the collections framework, you’re not living.

      My experience with C++ was when C++ was a relatively new thing. Practically the only notable feature provided by the standard library, was that unholy abuse of bit shift operators for I/O. No standard collections or any other data types.

      And every compiler would consider something else a valid C++ code or interpret the same code differently.

      I am little bit prejudiced since then… and that is probably where the author is coming from too.

      Then things were just getting more complicated (templates and other new syntax quirks), to fill the holes in attempts to make C a ‘high level language’.

          It’s a syntax sugaring and it reads pretty well in my eyes - it’s really obvious what is meant by that syntax.

      Java is extremely widespread in corporate companies - hence the suit and tie. Perl is fair to liken to spelunking deep into a dark cave with only your wits to save you.

      PHP seems to be a reference to the fact that it’s extremely common on servers… but it also might be a lazy phpbad joke - it’s pretty weak either way (if you wanted to play into the server characteristic give it a dozen arms serving the entire restaurant in the background).

        As a Perl dev, I dunno if that’s how I’d characterize the language, but I’ll take it over yet another “Perl is unreadable line noise lol and what’s the deal with airline food” reference.

          Yeah, to be honest you can write good code in any language and it’ll usually look pretty similar… all the perl stereotypes come from having to maintain shell scripts from someone kludging their way through learning to code… it’s the same reason why phpbad, amateurs could get into webdev with php so there’s an impression that all php is the php written by amateurs.

          Also, bear in mind that over time these languages have converged through feature additions “LISP has functional programming - why can’t PHP have first class functions… oh traits look neat, let’s add that… you know those statically typed languages sure seem nice…”

      Purely functional programming is a pathway to many abilities OOP devs consider to be… Unnatural

      IMO the ackchyually guy would be a better fit for Haskell. “Ackchyually monad is a monoid in the category of endofunctors!”
