    I'll just save it for later use

    Dafuq, who has ever been called, by anyone, an "AJAX programmer"? :S

    My sense is Fortran is out of place.

    Otherwise accurate.

    there is a lot of counter example. Eg, some Java programmer claims Java is much harder than JavaScript, without ever trying to learn js

    So the feel of superiority never depends on one's skill but one's level of ignorance.

    So here is the simplified graph :p

    I consider my language to be superior to your language. Even if we're using the same language.

    @Fiftyseven That's more like it 😬🀘

    @psfr937 Sometimes it's about complexity, but when it is not, it can be about anything as stupid as 'You know how many lines of code it takes for a HelloWorld program in java vs how much it takes in python?'

    Been working on a migration project at my firm that's responsible for migrating Assembly code to C. Been sick since the day I joined. What superiority you guys talkin' abt? πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

    shouldn't it be "Assembly" ?

    @lazyDev what you talkin' bout. I'm a spring chicken!

    Html is not a programing language, is a description language ^^

    I never realized I am a bottom feeder in the programming world...

    I find that the ceiling of assembly skill is much lower than most other languages.

    It's harsh to reason about code and to write algorithms in super low level languages, but at its core it's simpler to write Assembly routines than it is to deal with list comprehensions, asynchronous calls, closures and scopes, higher order functions, generalized algebraic data types, category theory stuff, etc.

    And languages are a bit like musical instruments. I got a really cheap electric guitar when I was a kid, and thought it sounded bad and was hard to play on because it was cheap. Until I handed it to the neighbor who was lead guitarist for a band...

    Sure some languages are constructed badly, but the end result is still very much dependent on the skill & experience of the developer.

    Bottom line, everyone are writing the same if statements

    I think is a complete graph

    But I use Perl,python,Ruby and php

    I still haven't found some mystical perfect language either, not even for a single use case. I always feel like:

    "why did they mess it up with x", "why are there twelve ways to do the same thing" or "why did they pick the worst way to do this thing instead of supporting x".

    Maybe, maybe one day I'll try to create my perfect language... and probably fail.

    Language Wars is one of the guilty pleasures of being programmer

    C rocks!
    And Assembler is "easy" :D

    @psfr937 I'm a Java developer and I've had more struggle learning JS than I did learning Java lol

    @aaxa I agree JS is harder than Java
