re: Things All Developers Should Learn In College VIEW POST


Generally good article. But the assumption that language choice in most doesn't matter is opposite to how I see that. Agree that languages are full of tradeoffs, and that is why some languages are better for one and other for second. I would never choose for example PHP for anything more than web server app, I would never choose Scala for Android development as it has very low support there. Also languages have specific concepts of design, for example writing FP in JavaScript is full of problems, writing FP in Elm is build into root concept of the language, and working with it is just brilliant.
In Summary - language choice is very important and has many implications, so it is very important decision
