My boss told me to finish 1 task before 7 tomorrow and all the code is written is Spanish SMH

    Spanish speakers tend to be more likely than most because they're the least likely to have character conflicts.

    @F1973 I write everything in english by choice, even comments, despite working in a tiny company in the middle of CH.
    For longer/more detailed explanations in a doc block or the readme, I occasionally switch to German or, as a "joke", to Swiss German.
    I think it's much easier to read code which is only in english, because you don't have to switch languages in your mind.

    @PonySlaystation It always amueses me when I find a random:

    @F1973 from experience, Dutch and China (where possible) write native with the odd English word to fuck with you.

    @F1973 Dutch without the accents so á would be a for example which isn't so bad, you get used to it and throw variables into Translate when really lost.

    But that Chinese code base I had to add too when I was freelancing many years ago was a mental breakdown and over engineered, the framework had its own routing, yet this thing had a custom router hard coded which needed to be added too, because you know, when you know a framework has its own routers and its not working, you kinda have to go digging.

    They didn't use the Chinese symbols, but the words/sounds what ever you call em, probably easier as an example.

    So something like this: let data = fetchAPI()
    Would be: let shuJu = huoQuAPI()

    In a way, I'm glad I don't freelance anymore 😅

    @F1973 like I've said in the pass, I've seen shit that would make people curl up in a ball and cry 😣

    Many years of dreadful code bases teaches one what should not be done at least.
