Stage #1: Time T = -3 years:
What a stupid scripting language. I haven't used it but it's a scripting
language and scripting languages suck. It's not useful for anything other than
form validation. Who cares. I'll never use it except maybe to make a form not
double submit on my personal website.
Stage #2: Time T = 0:
language sucks. What the fuck is up with those global variables. What do you
mean braces don't define scope. Well at least I found some stupid way to make
classes and inheritance work.
Stage #3: Time T = +3-5 years:
interesting. All this async stuff happening for free. And all these APIs that
just work. I can put something on the screen without needing 14 libraries and
spending a week trying to figure out how to get a window to appear. I don't
have to figure out how to render fonts on 7 different platforms in 17
languages. I can download images, draw stuff in canvas and WebGL, play audio,
access the camera and mic and with very minor hiccups it just works. I get
immediate feedback, just refresh. Stuff can be styled by my designers without
my having to write tons of code and when I want to show someone I just send
them a link. This is pretty awesome.
Stage #4: Time T = +5 years:
I'm going to do some C/C++ programming again. Ugh! WFT this stuff no longer
compiles! Why doesn't this project load in my IDE anymore. They must have
changed the format. DAMMIT why doesn't libglfobar link? Ugh! What? I've got to
write 200 lines of meta−templating code just to make generic callbacks?
Fuck! Why is this so tedious! Oh you want to check it out? Sorry I don't have
access to a Mac to compile it for you. Sorry. Fuck I hate C/C++!
