Have assembly taught as the first language in college. 👀😂

    @fuzzy-logic I’m sorry.

    I was going to write a comment about why this is a stupid idea.

    But then I realized it's computer science we're talking about, not just programming. When you look at it from that angle, assembly actually makes a lot of sense.

    @Froot keep in mind that items can assume more than one state; they can be comic and laughable and yet reasonable, they can be stupid and tedious and get practical.

    i intended for my rant to be dual-stated.

    @fuzzy-logic fuzzy logic is cool though... I wrote my thesis on applying fuzzy logic to fuzzify database queries :) cool stuff that nodoby seems to use much.

    I knew a guy in class who cracked cd security using assembly. Then he got testicle cancer. Don't know if there's a relation.

    Anyway, before you ask: he's doing fine, had it replaced by a plastic one or sth. Weird he had it at a young age. He was 22 I think. Strange times we live in. Sorry for the off topic...

    @FrodoSwaggins Yea, that makes sense.
    Tho if you're teaching webdev for example the assembly wouldnt be too useful and would just scare people off.

    Also, you're a teacher too? Man, you must be really old or you're just making shit up 😄

    @FrodoSwaggins Why do they hate Java and C#?
  • 0
    @FrodoSwaggins that those who know Java and C# are part of the elite and anyone who doesn’t is a pleb?

    jk jk

    @FrodoSwaggins They don't like complicated stuff I suppose. As far as I know (not being a pro dev yet), those languages are useful to design big complex programs. In a kinda religious Java/c# discussion I've seen a Java developer writing he doesn't see himself writing a big enterprise project in python.

    I'm into C# right now, but I definitely would like to do some python, c or c++ later on.

    @FrodoSwaggins Well, I did love to use shorts and chars for small numbers. I miss it in C#. Productivity is much higher in C# though.

    @FrodoSwaggins c++ is not a silver bullet. Is has its uses, mainly high performance stuff or super close to the metal stuff, but it's not perfect for everything. Biggest weak point of C++ is it's development time, which equals money to a company.

    @FrodoSwaggins well, I'm not a c++ Dev so I can't bring strong arguments here but what I can say is that the market disagrees with you. Development time is super important, it's part of the reason why higher level languages exist.

    @FrodoSwaggins You'd write absolutely everything in C++ 🤣

    @FrodoSwaggins Well, I can assure you there are a zillion places where c++ is a horrible choice 😄

    Also, you must have had some really bad luck with C# codebases.

    I wish we could actually get a C# developer here, he might know more.

    @Froot you’re wearing glasses so your company already has a c# dev, mate.
