Easy steps to programming language commitment

Feel pressured by other developers telling you that your programming language of choice is old, bad, or that you should feel bad? Apply this heuristic:

  • Try different programming languages until you find one that best fits your brain and the problems you want to solve
  • Use that langauge for everything you can
  • When a language comes along that fits your brain or your problems even better, switch to that one, ad infinitum

Don’t let the hype of people with different brains or different problems get you down.
