Just lol if you think python or whatever is the future

Stack overflow and GitHub are for new programmers and Uber nerds. Their rankings mean nothing except that Python is a teaching language.

The future is moving toward integrated frontend like node that do everything. Data storage happens via graphql or some reactive backend and is continuously streamed to the frontend. Python doesn't have any of these and is screwed. Even stuff like rust is too nerdy, node v8 is inherently distributed and there is no need for anything else for lazy programmers.

      Clearly their stack is way ahead of our time. You’ll understand it a few years later when you include this in your Pom.xml

    Python is fantastic for Lambda, especially scientific applications. It’s debuggers could use some work though.

      Python + Django with Jinja2 can work pretty well for front end. It has one of the better ORMs for Python but doesn’t work with AWS as well.

      You can use JS with Django but it’s also possible to write Django web apps with minimal JS.

      Maybe you live in an alternative reality.

      While it's true that lots of "data scientists" only deal with pages of SQL, but here at Microsoft, there are several Azure engineers working with MXNet, PyTorch and Keras. I'm not sure what your company uses for ML and DL (perhaps Excel, since you so fondly put it).

      And while we're on the topic, did you graduate from Harvard with a PhD to make such a comment? Besides, unlike law, Harvard isn't such a great school for engineering.

      Yes, I graduated Harvard diwth an 85 iq. While we're on the topic, azure is just automating everything and making all other ds work obsolete. In five years Ds will be a button in azure and not a real discipline.

    Also I guess most data scientists should read your post and be like “fuck it let’s migrate all these libs to JS” lol.

    • @albertsons I mentioned those companies because their backend are highly scaled and written in Python.

      Also, your point about reactive/GraphQL is moot because any language can support a GraphQL backend...they’re all Turing complete and can do what the others do.

      Furthermore JS is single threaded and the syntax looks like shit, plus the language/tools keep changing once every year so this makes it really hard to adopt compared to any of the more popular backend languages.

      Js is doing fine, it's killing everything. The iot crap uses node. Single thread simplicity is an advantage when dealing with thousands of disparate devices.
      Aug 11
    • What? The problem with server-side JS is that since there’s no blocking IO it makes it harder to write simple code, and async/await syntax (which is also in Python by the way) is not super intuitive and is taking a while to become mainstream.

      Also any app that scales doesn’t have multiple threads serving one request. It’s all done through message passing.

      Go at least has goroutines. Which is the best way to handle resumable programming IMO.

    • Scale matters when cost comes into play. Do you spin up 20 servers running Node or Python or 2 running Go or Java? And you have to consider developer productivity as well.

      Personally I think Kotlin has the best balance between high performance and readable, concise code. Even for the server side.

      Edit: Please don’t use the phrase “nig ars”...ever...thanks.

    I agree with the part that python is a steaming pile of slow virtually single threaded shit. JS is right there next to it together with GraphQL. React is OK. Node is a joke that you can use to make a POC or a CICD tool.
