Discussion on: Why is your preferred programming language your go-to?

I'm going to be the weirdo here: I don't have a go-to programming language.

I like python. It's nice for simplicity, and I'm ok with the whitespace thing. I never get to apply this skill professionally though.

I like javascript. It's everywhere. It's got some warts, but it's pretty simple to hammer stuff out.

I like java. Tools like Spring Boot where almost anything you want to do is there already, and you can build pretty big things with a couple of config classes, a few interfaces, and some annotations.

Same here, mostly any of these three or c#, when it comes to programming.
The only reason I use JS more than the others is that it's really simple to just open the console in Chrome and start typing...
