Long time using
big, slow, strongly-typed Java,
subject to impenetrable containers -
too many bloated layers of software
slapped too quickly
around Open Source
by multinational companies
run by too many layers of management,
highly paid executives
who listen to the day traders that own the stock today,
and fire the coders who understand the product,
for a more profitable quarter now and pain later,
coders who bitterly give up software careers
to teach Math or sell flutes. Really.
Perl was always my scripting language of choice.
Finally...again...those who know answers
are encouraged to share them,
and lastingly enjoy the results of their labors,
and not try to forget.
What a difference.
