more established programming languages like Java and the C-family — you’ve come
far and flourished to a point where there’s no denial that you’re here to stay.
You’re like the Harvard dropouts
You’re like the Harvard dropouts that turned into billionaires. No one thought you could do it — and yet here we are, almost 26 years later, with a multitude of libraries, modules, and frameworks to support a developer’s every whim, desire, and needs.

Being multi-paradigm, developers are not locked into a specific way of coding, allowing for code to be structured based on practicality rather than required purity. It is weakly typed and implicit casting makes coding operations faster but comes with caveats.
Anyone can write code — but it’s the quality factor that sets developers apart. It’s the difference between someone writing a tweet and Stephen King publishing one of his novels. All Stephen Kings can be tweeters but not all tweeters can be Stephen Kings.
Thank you for reading and I hope you’ve found this piece enjoyable.
Not everything is an object. When it comes to functional programming, it’s more

groups of business logic are structured.
CSV is convenient. The likes of Excel, Google Docs, spreadsheet export
functions, and reporting applications all support CSV in some capacity. CSV
works well with large data sets and the major perk is that it can easily be
converted to other formats such as XML or JSON.
This is where
It’s easy to fall into a habit of being comfortable. When it comes to coding, productivity can be improved in two ways — getting good at the language you’re working with or upgrading your environment and processes incrementally.
We’ve all done it — but the question is, are you still coding it?
