Interesting! Yes, I definitely understand the feeling of "home" in a programming language - that's a great way to put it! :)
At the same time, you run the risk of being way too passive with your learning if you only stick with the familiar. That's why I feel like branching into C has helped me, because it's forced me out of my comfort zone and made me more comfortable with learning seemingly foreign things.
Maybe I should target something like Lisp next, for that purpose! Haha
Yes, there's definitely something to be said about that. I did the SICP videos (the original ones are on youtube!) early in my career - and that was really helpful in seeing that there are other types of programming paradigms, other than OO :)
I'll have to check them out! Thank you very much for the recommendation.
Thank you so much!
