re: Why is your preferred programming language your go-to? VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

I find that I don't care too much about the syntax that I'm writing -- more important for me is that I know the details of the language like the back of my hand. For instance, I prefer JavaScript since I know in detail how prototypes work, how the garbage collector operates, which methods are available on an array, etc. This means I can just sit down and write code without having to constantly stop to look things up. If I had that same depth of knowledge in, say, Python or Go, then I'd feel comfortable switching languages.
