May someone explain to me why it is that we don't collectively just put IE down by simply not supporting it anymore instead of working around it?6
TL;DR: New(-ish) dev looking for advice to improve workflow and new languages. Hopefully worth a read though :)
I want to learn more, technically-applicable languages.
My setup is barebones (to a Linux diehard's eyes), with a gaming laptop that I do a lot of workstation stuff on, an RPi 3 B that I do some Linux-y stuff on, and a less-powerful Development Laptop (that I call a devtop) that I occasionally do work away from home on.
I'm sure most will cringe and weep at my workflow, as I use Windows 10 on both systems and the standard NOOBS software on the pi, and I use Brackets as my text editor, as well as the XAMPP AMP stack for testing.
My biggest questions are what could I do to improve my workflow, and what languages should I learn/apply myself to for real-world application (such as Node.js for live-updating server-side applications or C# for Windows applications)?
Thank you for taking the time to read this, any feedback is helpful! I'm just a high school student with a lot of enthusiasm for development!6
1 problem down, 3 more show up.
I love SQL.
In other news, client won't send data to utilize, so I must fill in dummy data.
How's your day?
As a student still in high school, I hate seeing other teenagers throwing their phones across the campus onto grass or in class throwing them on the floor, it's such a disrespect for technology. I personally feel with how much technology is around everyone daily we become desensitized to how wonderful and extraordinary tech is. That's one reason I am a developer1

Relatively new web developer here. I want to delve into C# for use in Unity and other projects, but upon doing quite a bit of googling I can't find any free/well documented C# tutorials/lessons online. Does anyone know where I could go to learn? Thank you!10
