    If you don't code in Python, what programming language makes you happy?

    I have Python book purchased about 10 years ago, when Python 3 was still a new thing. Never truly read it and I never had a use case when I was a regular programmer to test it. It was new fashion that people who crunch big data for some reason beloved.

    I know that python is more a commodity to many today and Python 3 is the standard rather a curiosity, but as I'm retired into day-to-day programming and let my teams to decide on the languages, I see they still prefer:
    - java for backend web/server development
    - reactjs for front-end development, which is Javascript or Typescript in its core proposition
    - C/C++ and C#/.NET is still in some trajectory
    - but as a part of R&D and also my own hobby projects I test Rust, Crystal (Ruby, but native exes are produced from it) and ZIG, which is my recent discovery..

    I find that every platform for programming over years becomes bloated and we keep reinventing the same wheel with new programming languages and approaches only to discover obviously that we want to keep things simple and previous iterations of the same shit implemented just did not know what simple is.. enough..

    I call it a sick love we share in this industry to endlessly fix the same problems. Language selection ain't part of the resolution, by my managerial discovery.

    people would say that if you don't like it, make your own language. so they did.
