One of the things I learned is that programming languages are not about computer instructions, but human interaction.
Each programming language has a community, a background, influencers, and frameworks that shape how programs are written.
In the same way that spoken languages follow a community, their habits, and their way of living. Programming languages follow a programming community.
What makes a language good or bad is also biased. We consider French romantic because of French music. We might also consider other languages aggressive because that’s the language of bad guys in Hollywood movies.
In the same way, we might consider some languages cooler than others because of influencers and Twitter hype.
My programming language is the best because it represents my community and how we communicate with each other.
The next time you get in touch with a language you are not familiar with, instead of thinking if it’s bad or good, try to understand from that community and embrace this diversity we have in the industry.
