I wonder what do you think about languages and respective frameworks which cover a wide range of problems, like .NET, C# allows developing from console applications, to 3d games and webapps and recently ML.NET allows integrating machine learning, I find quite useful a single language doesnt force to use different languages and frameworks to accomplish a task

I'm currently listening to futureofcoding.org to find about various alternatives, what would make programming easier and safer.

My criteria is that programming language and web framework should be Open Source, so I am able to fix bugs in it.

This is because many years ago I developed large app with Access 97, it did work on WinXP, but not anymore at Win7.

To use some programming language, all these libraries and frameworks are very important. There needs to be all UI, database etc drivers available. That's because otherwise those libraries and drivers need to be coded by developer itself.

Some years ago I did try to code some file access code with C# and IIS but I did find from IIS docs that it was not possible, there was some file locking issues.

I did also try to code same with Go but Go server did keep crashing on Windows. Windows also locked file permissions so that I could not access all Go server related files.

On each programming language, usually I get stuck at the beginning.
