Whats that??? I actually never figured out why programming languages have such names. .Net, C#, C ,C++ (yeah yeah. ++ because it’s the next version of C). But then I realized that they must have considered some situations which may lead to many confusions. And the confusions lead to more confusions.
Imagine if the programming languages have names of human beings. Consider .Net. If .Net was called as Jessica (My favorite Hollywood actress). What would have been difficulties while conversations?? Something like…
I want to learn Jessica
I’m learning Jessica
Jessica is Object oriented
Jessica has garbage collector
Programmers are really intelligent persons. I never under estimated them. But they do consider such things and it’s mind blowing.
Does that programmers rule apply to me?? I’m writing code in .Net and hence logically I’m a programmer. But how can a person with lot’s of nonsense be called a programmer and hence an intelligent person?? Consider myself as an exception. 😀
