Boring part of the article
Is that good or bad? Hm… both.
On one hand, you can make a working proof of a concept in a language easy to learn in a few days. Though, it will be an unmaintainable bulk of code in one file, without tests, that will make your eyes bleed.
But most of that code is terrible. I’ve seen a lot of projects, modules, front-end and back-end applications during my career. Almost all of them are written awfully. While looking at it, I felt a strong urge to break the arms of whoever was related to writing that code.
This leads to another problem.
Let me draw an analogy with another situation. Imagine that you never written in Python; you don’t have experience with it. Also, you’ve never seen well-written Python code. So, you don’t have experience and enough knowledge to write a good maintainable code. You wrote some code, released some project, everything is working, you’re happy.
People keep talking about languages being bad when they should really focus on the developers using those languages.
Be smarter, don’t judge by what you saw or heard. Judge by what you and others do. Thanks for reading!
