hypervtechnics2885277dWhy do people mix both?
mohammed10589277dSorry, I didn't get you.
Come again please?
Michelle26932277dBecause they probably don't know English. It's a difficult language to learn with lots of stupid rules.
nbamaral4098277dWhy the hell not? Compilers don't care, neither does the cpu. 😒
I write most in English anyway...
ItsNotMyFault3139277d@nbamaral programmers have to read the code, inheriting projects written by the lowest bidder and having everything written in <insert language only 5m people speak> here is painful when you're not one of those 5m people.
I can accept russian, chinese, hindi, arabic, and other big languages but not shit like norwegian or icelandic ...
I'm not an English native speaker, yet I rather code and read in English because it's faster for me to think in english. But sometimes I have to share code with coworkers that don't read English. I don't like it,but don't make a big deal out of it. Search and replace is there for the rescue.
Not every piece of code is having an international audience anyway 😊
