However, now with the rise of Ruby, Python, and other languages which emphasize simplicity and readability, I think that attitude is changing.
This. Exactly. Thank you.
This is exactly what people should do: Try a new hipster framework, think it's too high-level and magical, try re-doing it without the framework, then realize that they're just re-inventing the framework, and finally learn to appreciate with the framework and realize its ups and downs.

this is exactly why young engineers do not want to program in java.
As someone born, raised, educated, and living in the SF Bay Area, it's interesting to see outsiders' perspectives. But to get a more realistic picture, one only needs to look at the vast economic disparity between the predominantly African-American natives of West Oakland and their wealthy 20something (mostly white and Asian) programmer counterparts across the bay.
Whenever i see an article like this, i step in and say something like this, but i would appreciate it if people learned about Islam themselves (and from proper Islamic sources). not everything the internet & mass media says is the truth.
Thank you, and peace
As a practicing Muslim
The media will essentially give the impression that "look - look at what these bad Muslims are doing!" without considering economic and political factors as well. Often "Muslims" or "Islamic extremists" are blamed for incidents completely political in nature (often committed by Muslims or secularists living in Muslim countries). Also, they will take the actions of an extreme minority and use such words, take such pictures that it will make you think they are the majority. Hence "those crazy Muslims". Take the recent attacks on the US embassy for example. I've BEEN to protests in the USA where atheist groups have thrown molotov cocktails. There have been plenty of incidents in which anarchists will cause illegal violence, such as getting on top of police cars and smashing them, during protests. But we don't think that all protesters are like that, do we? We don't hear about those incidents, do we? There's a reason for that.
All I will say is, let those who seek the truth, seek the truth, and let those who blindly follow, blindly follow.
Let the seekers of truth seek the truth.
It is sad that a community which prides itself so much on free-thinking and open-mindedness will so blindly follow the mainstream media and right-wing conservative propaganda when it comes to Islam.
