Official: Perl the most hated programming language, say devs

AndrueC Silver badge

I don't hate any language. I use what is appropriate. However I am keeping my distance from my colleague that works in JavaScript with React. I've seen and heard enough to be in no hurry to leave my C#/VS world.

I still have a fondness for C++ as a 'real programmer's language' but frankly it's hard work to do it well. Very much fun..but I prefer the easy life. I've often said that C++ is an F1 sports car to C#'s Ford Focus. One is fun to drive and extremely powerful. The other is boring but gets you to and from the shops with less hassle :)

But, yes, it's the toolchain that stinks. We're in the process of migrating from vs2015 to vs2017. The best thing my other colleague has said on that seems to be 'It's no worse' :-/
