Can’t quite get the knack of C programming? I get it....
I can hack it, it's just that ALL of my professional work has involved primarily maintenance -- therefore I absolutely loathe the "write-only nature"* of C-style languages (and RegExes, but that's another rant).
Moreover, I'm quire interested in systems-level programming (compilers and OSes especially) and rather disappointed to see how "the C mentality" has impacted these fields for the worse. (Take a look at re-hosting compilers, there's a surprising number that are dependent on C for no good reason other than the historical [i.e. it was originally implemented in C].)
* -- Meaning the philosophy that is only just not actively hostile towards maintenance.
