I cannot properly express my hate towards C++. I really cannot put it into words. You would think that starting a sentence with insults and strong words would do it, but no, it would only appear as a feeble attempt to express how I really feel. A polite 'fuck you C++'... will only be reciprocated with a 'fuck you too Werner'. So I'm totally at a loss. Even comparing C++ its complexities and ambiguous sense of morality to Merkel would not do it justice. Sometimes, I feel like I would like to pick up the phone, call Stroustroup, pull him through the cable and have 'a nice chat' with him. Will not do either because he already speaks like the Swedish cook. Maybe the best comparison would be a kafkaesque interaction between administration trying to rob your of your will to live and you as the victim. I feel like I want to die.
Cay Horstmann's book, Core Java, was the making of me as a Java programmer. I've branched out as a consultant: after some years un-training coders out of bad practices, I've started mentoring for money. The pay is surprisingly good: there are people who really do want to learn how to do things properly. Software is a craft, I don't have to tell you that. As a craft, it needs something like Gesellenprüfung and Meisterprüfung to ensure the Stupid are not leading the Blind.
