Re: I suspect there are quite a few Java devs out there

As my career started in resource constrained times, I was formed as a C/Assembler then C++ guy.

When Java appear in the 90s I made the effort to learn it but soon became disillusioned with it as a fat, lumbering sloth of a thing that would use many times the memory and cycles to do the same thing as I could with my old comfortable friend languages.

I still don't see any reason to use so much resource just because it's available.

Python, great and I got into it helping my son through school with it, it does some exceptional things.

But I still like to be as close to the metal as possible. If something doesn't need real programming then Javascript will do it.

Python will take over the world though, it's the new BASIC and the enthusiasts/makers love it.
