What your favorite programming language says about you


In his blockbuster Bloomberg essay "What is Code," Paul Ford wrote that "the choice of a main programming language is the most important signaling behavior that a technology company can engage in."

Programming languages create fierce tribes around themselves, with developers often getting into "religious wars" over the pros and cons of each.

It's gotten to the point where stereotypes have emerged - some languages have a reputation as great for the hobbyist but bad for the serious enterprise app developer, while others are thought to be reliable, but boring.

(Some of them are even thought to be more "manly" than others, which is hogwash - recent studies show men and women are good at the same programming languages at about the same rate.)
