Eight EXCELLENT languages for the fondleslab-friendly Intranet of Thingies
Shifting software paradigms and so forth
Fresh for 14, faded by 15?
If all your aspersions are safely cast, what horses are you actually backing? Compulsory Objective C for toddlers? Malbolge?
As opposed to the dialect of VBScript supported by IE5, I suppose? Astonishingly prescient. Definitely worth reading you just for that.
Tell you what: you stay sat there and continue picking your nose while I go pluck my North Face from its hook.
I urge you to be suspicious of compiling one high level language to another. You put an extra layer or interpretation and bother between yourself and the machine, and one not necessarily that will increase your control or expressiveness.
Hum. Are you really just trying to say 'Don't bother your head with CoffeeScript', and so sneak in a negative prediction masquerading as a positive one?
I don't know how you can think that.
Fine. Let me see if I can infer your other blazingly-obvious deductions. You've done down XML so I guess Fab technology #2 is JSON, right?
And by the same system, your reluctance to touch SOAP suggests Fab technology #3 is REST?
Like shooting Type II diabetic fish in an undersized barrel. And you'll be backing git for Fab technology #4? On account of its distributed model, speed and ease of merging?
No. I'm backing it because it has been compulsory since 17th March 2013.
Huh? Compulsory? What happened? A conciliatory gesture from the Elders of the Internet to git-meister Linus on the occasion of the ten thousandth 'Is this the year of the Linux desktop' article?
Double-u tee eff? Oh, wait, I see. The 'forking' innuendo. Good point. To avoid the wrath of the demons of 4chan, we had perhaps better perform the formal nerdal responses. I'd love to fork your repo, Verity.
Nah, JQuery is, as it were, the BIOS of the client-side webstack. I'm talking about which of the dozens of MVC frameworks to choose.
'BIOS of the client-side webstack' indeed. All right then, which MVC framework?
Fab Technology #6 is a AngularJS. Because it is clever, elegant, Google-backed and has really taken off. And seems to work pretty well. Season it with a hint of Bootstrap and you can knock up a SPA in no time.
Fab Technology #7 is NodeJs.
Yup. It's fantastic: efficient, versatile and...
...and you quickly end up indented off the right hand margin, imprisoned inside a huge stack of nested lambdas.
Wait a moment. I've heard of this. You are just describing the MEAN stack. Your last nomination will therefore be MongoDB which, as is well known, is...
And a happy new year to you too. ®
