They say that you should fight for love — and the same is true for our favorite programming languages. You might adore how easy it is to get started with PHP, but HATE the plethora of mistakes this can lead to. Or you might admire Python for its many, many libraries but find its non-nativity for mobile environments to be frustrating. So while we love and keep coming back to our favorite languages, wow does it feel good to vent in a safe space about them!
