Evidently nobody uses databases anymore.
Ive outlived all my Girlfriends and Languages, how unfortunate........
It’s good to know that you understood at least one of those. :)
Craigslist is for Cartagena escorts looking to diversify.
What?? no LISP!!
C++ is wicked.
The Java would be on the server side so you will not see it.
RE: Evidently nobody uses databases anymore.
Hmmm... wonder why SQL is not considered a programming language. Maybe they make a differentiation between programming and querying...
But whatever language one program’s in, Java, C# or whatever, it’s very hard to avoid interfacing with SQL.
RE: This is a silly thread.
We can’t be serious all the time. Why not have some fun once in a while?
How about a top 10 silliest threads of all time thread?...
Yes, Fortran and COBOL, but also add Pascal that was ‘tough’ way back when.
RE: If you know how to code, you’re going to pick up enough of any compiled or interpreted language to become productive in it pretty quickly.
I can appreciate the sentiment. However, if a company is heavily using a language in its applications ( e.g. C# ), or tools like Visual Studio, no matter how good a programmer you are in another language ( e.g. PASCAL or ADA), they are not going to consider you at all.
They want somebody who can do the job NOW. There is no time for on the job learning at all.
One of our best software developers in C#, ASP.NET and SQL Server just left the company. I just received 5 resumes from Tech recruiting firms to replace him... all of them have the same experience and skillsets.
And get this -— ALL of them have INDIAN names. Go figure.
Turbo Pascal (and DR Pascal) to
Visual BASIC to
All were a b*tch, weren’t they?
Ada had been big for banking applications fairly recently. I don’t know about currently. Ada was designed to enforce strict programming discipline and promote reliability. That’s something you want in mission critical systems in DoD and certainly it’s welcome in the financial world.
Is that bass like the fish, or bass like the guitar?
You’re pretty much locked into Subjective C for Mac development.
Any .Net developer would dual develop if MS ported Studio to the Mac.
i love c# and vb but hate java......i’ll bet more business transactions run thru RPG and Cobol than all those other languages combined
RE: i love c# and vb but hate java.
Wonder why you would love C# and hate Java when both are quite similar in syntax...
