Back in the Java sadlle again
There are of course many different views on what the best programming language might be, or even might be like. There is the battle of the two major - Java vs. C# - and then the bickering of all the rest of them; strongly typed, loosly typed, OOP, functional, pragmatically structured, strict type, low syntax impact, semantic syntax, lingustic semantics, virtual engine, compiled to binary, interpreted, half-baked, and on and on.
The funny thing about Java is how complicated it feels. Sure, I can work out exactly what is going on, where, why and how, but it just feel ... complex, and I mean in all the wrong places. Why should it be so hard to do string manipulation, anyways? Or even testing on types? Or converting between types? The strongly typedness of it all is my biggest ... uh, mumble about it right now. Don't worry; it'll pass in a day or so.
Oh, and this is also my posting number 100 to this blog, so happy anniversary to me.Permalink (Tue, 13 July 2004 13:00:00 GMT)| Comments (4) | Programming
