"I don’t want my programmer consuming a full day in Java to write a program to read CSV files or to grab a message from a TCP/UDP port."

"There are lots of python modules accessible that can do your job in a couple of minutes."

"you can write a UDP message listener in 5 minutes in Python as battled[?] to 20 minutes in Java"

"You should learn Java to create a strong, scalable server-side application." Laugh | :laugh:

"The[?] C is still the most favored language for system programming" Mad | :mad:

"Alicia Newman is a 29-year-old programming professor" Hmmm | :|

Instant gratification pervades this article: let's hack something together yesterday. This may be reasonable coming from a prof, but nothing enduring is put together that way. It's all well and good for programming contests or getting homework done over the weekend, but for what's important in serious industrial applications, most of this is sheer bollocks.
