I recently heard this anecdote.  It’s sticking with me, so I’m sharing it!

So!  You want to become a programmer.  Well, here’s a list of languages for you to learn:

Ruby, NodeJS, ASP, PHP, Java, Python, AngularJS, …

Choose one of these as the language you know the best and build your career on.  Now, look at the remaining languages in the list and choose one.  From this point forward, this will be the language you hate.  You don’t need a reason to hate this language, but you can never be convinced to appreciate or use it.  Once in a while you will hear another person hate the same language as you.  They may have a reason, which you can add to your list of reasons for hate without needing to research the validity of that person’s reason.

Does this sound familiar?
