People like you are why people like me laugh at so-called “software engineers”.

People like you are why people like me laugh at so-called “software engineers”. Please read that quoted phrase with EXTREME sarcasm.

I’ve been working in ‘C’, off and on, for nigh on 40 years. I absolutely guarantee, with ZERO chance of being wrong, that I can write anything you want in ‘C’, better than you can in any language of your choice aside from assembler. It will be more efficient, smaller, and faster.

Touting these new fangled silly languages, which are built on top of languages like ‘C’, is silly. If you learned how to write stuff safely in the first place, which all of us did in the 70s and 80s, you wouldn’t be proclaiming some idiotic new paradigm as “the only way to do things”.

Seriously, just stop. I imagine you with your nose in the air, drinking white wine with a pinky extended. Okay, really, I don’t, but that’s the image you are pushing.

Oh, and before you start, yes, I can work in any language you mention. In any style you mention. Let me give you the answer we gave back then. There ain’t no such thing as a silver bullet.
