How I decide between many programming languages
@sir Kotlin might solve a lot of your problems with Java, since it pretty effectively gets rid of the bloat while still interoperating well
@gbear605 I'm entirely resigned from the java ecosystem
@sir that’s fair; I would be too if I were solely working on open source projects of my own choosing
@sir interesting that you've moved rust out of the "languages i'd not use for anything category"
is it because of the systems programming?
i agree that the package ecosystem is trash and lots of people use rust poorly
still i find the strongly typed stuff useful for really low level tasks
@pounce the other stuff is for software I would refuse to even contribute to. I wouldn't start projects in Rust but if I had a need I might send a patch
@sir ya im pretty much in the same place at the moment
might start up my OS rust project again though to demo some stuff for my adv OS class
@pounce some software I use (and enjoy) is written in rust, like alacritty and synapse
@pounce but personally I would have written those in C and C or Go, respectively
@sir interesting you skewer ruby but is that more about ruby itself or rails by which most see as ruby?
@dekkzz78 both in equal amounts
@sir interesting how people perceive cs languages, from my time when i programmed for a living i saw C as good for drivers but misused for so many things like python now as it along with java is what is taught by 90% of academic CS courses. So people forced it's use into so many things there were better choices as that was what they knew.
@sir If you're going to lump together Haskell and Erlang, you may as well just lump together C and C++.
