Yeah, xaml is the hottest of hot garbage. It uses 10 words when 3 will do. The experiential quality is the reason js-templating solutions are so prevalent.
heyheni2133016dhow is it to be a cobol dev? Sparing us from the potential collapse of our modern society by massaging those aching old mainframes gently.
Loeina71215d@heyheni the hardware is actually all new. Most shops get new hardware as soon as it's released (or soonish). The code running on said hardware is older though for the most part (by volume).
Plenty new stuff is written but i have worked on running code that is older than i am... that was a bizzare experience!
But i like it for the most part. Cobol is a good language for its intended use :)
