Perhaps what you keep forgetting is that what you're reading is the changes. The core of the language, that you have come to appreciate is still there. You'll still get an autovivified hash five levels deep from a three line diamond-split-assign-plus-equals loop. Really. Don't get hung up on the differences. The core is still there. Life is still good.

[Corion]: I guess I should not read some discussions on HackerNews - the crowd there is weirdly different - "you have to stay current in tech" (by following all the latest JS trends) is a meme there, but it doesn't really match my experience
[Corion]: At least in my area, experience can beat most new tech anyway because most new tech is just a rehash of things abandoned in the 70s and we still have a lot of that ;)
[Corion]: choroba: Ah, that will be next Friday for $work ;) Drinking enough water is key ;))
[Corion]: But then, maybe that's just my experience with things, and maybe Hacker News is just people much younger who haven't seen more than one tech cycle...
[choroba]: s/water/bear/ and s/enough/too much/
[choroba]: beer
[choroba]: oh ok
[marto]: I crashed the ScotLUG Christmas night, having never actually been to ScotLUG
[choroba]: Corion yeah, I probably already told you about how Bjarne Stroustrup was asked whether he still watched the new tech trends and what really impressed him
[choroba]: His reply was "I watch them, but I haven't been impressed in the last 10 years. There's been nothing new". That was 2 years ago :)
