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

I have a few preferences depending on the task at hand:

  • bash for anything to do with file and system operations
  • python for quick scripts and prototyping projects (generally < 500 lines). It is great for easy setup, lot of libraries and what you can accomplish in 500 lines
  • java (and these days kotlin) for more serious projects where I feel static typing and JVM ecosystem will benefit
  • On my learning list: Haskell and Rust

Haskell is awesome, but hard. It hurts my brain, but I love it. Good luck
