Java Sucks

2007-08-06 16:45:10.317476+00 by Dan Lyke 3 comments

If Java is such a great computer language, how come all of the applications that are written in it that I have to deal with suck so badly?

Just the fact that you can identify WHAT language the application was written in is telling of the language's suckitude.

Laughing.. crying.. The real moment of telling for me was when Louise, Nancy's daughter, started coding in Java and called me just to rant about "the dumb fat pig". She's now writing C and C++ on Linux and doing well.

You know, back in 2000 I decided I needed to teach myself Java, since it was the "language of the future"... Loaded up a bunch of web-based tutorials, bought a book, and off I went...

The end result was a case of cognitive dissonance that nearly drove me mad, and turned me off programming entirely for YEARS. It was only when I started playing with Python that I rediscovered the joy of coding.

Java? Feh!
