or the human race itself could grow up, and we could collectively acknowledge that we ALL did and said stuff when we were younger that on reflection probably wasn't that wise. It's like we're all living under a single big fat lie
When everyone's bad deeds and naked photos are on the internet, noone will care.
Guess that would put a bunch of tabloid newspapers out of business though.
I grew up in C, C++, Java and - for £income purposes - trained up in c#
I think part of the hate against VB (shocking pre
it's like programming languages are deliberately designed to use obscure terms, syntax, symbols and squiggly characters for no reason other than to obfuscate it from puny humans

Monday: Dev team commences work on todo list, Customer commences testing and evaluation of latest build
Friday: Latest build given to Customer for evaluation. Bugs and new-feature-requests given to dev team
Notes: Dev team happy. Customer happy watching progress as project continues. Project delivered on time.
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesay, Thursday: Bugs & new features are constantly delivered to dev team, all of which expected to be delivered by Thursday.
Friday: Build probably doesn’t happen because a new feature was dreamt up Thursday morning and half of dev team is scrambling to get it in place, and then it’s buggy anyway
Notes: Dev team under constant pressure to deliver ASAP, stressed, mistakes and bugs creep in. Customer continues to want to see shiney new idea #743 yesterday.
