if programmers spent as much time programming as we do arguing about programming languages, would we understand programming?

one thing i've thought a lot lately kind of boils down to: programming languages suck, and arguing about them is fun (well, maybe it's just perverse after a while, but i try not to kinkshame and anyway it _starts out_ fun), and they're a lot of the material we have to work with, so it's natural to argue about them.

but actually: past a certain baseline of technical capability, programming languages aren't really the problem with software.


@brennen it's almost like it's not the technology but the people.
