Java Programmers are the Erotic Furries of Programming

    […] If you’re still unclear, check here to find out why your language sucks. And finally, there’s The Programmer Hierarchy. I’m pretty happy to be up there near the top of the food chain. […]

    It is also a reflection of progression (or more accurately, regression) of a typical programmers career path…

    eg: most oldie assembler programmers moved down to C, their first ‘high level’ language, then C++ and finally C# (though a few led debauched lives and went straight to he… err… I mean Java)

    and those that went to C#, were happy because they didnt have to go the much loathed (to C/C++ programmers at least) VB.

    Finally, if I were refactoring this hierarchy… I would move heaven and earth to put VB at the same level as HTML - sorry!

    […] I recently came across a .NET web application that requests a login to view any of its pages.  There was a typical login; username and password.   So I gave it a try.  Of course I didn’t know the credentials, but I noticed that the page responded with a JavaScript alert, letting me know that my credentials did not match.  Why use an alert?  I could only assume a typical Java programmer was behind such shenanigans.  (inside joke) […]
