I'm not really here, just popped in to see if folks are still trying to use Java and failing.
I do see a thread that has a number of posts from me back 9 or 10 years ago, the one on betting on emerging languages.
Clearly one could argue that Swift is emerging, or perhaps that it is just Objective-C-with-better-syntax. Its so popular in IOS and IOS is so popular that it probably is not really emerging.
It is good to see non-SQL databases. For decades, it was heresy to hint that SQL wasn't prefect.
I spend more time these days riding dirt bikes, rather than writing code. My preferred language these days is Google's go.
Mostly because I have always preferred being more at the system level than application level.
