More C# Elvis impersonators
Fri, Dec 9 2005 10:12
I often joke with friends about the Elvis impersonators in regards to
C#. Why? Well because C# was marketed much to its original code
name of "Cool", the new cool language. And if you are a crappy programmer
all the better. You could walk away from any previous code, and "pretend" to be
cool. Sadly for C# this has meant it has attracted probably the worse of all
programmers to it.
What's even funnier, is these are also often the loudest anti VB
advocates. You can imagine I've encountered many of them over the years,
and time after time they were just espoulting their own ignorance. Time
after time they in fact did not know what they were talking about. And
sure enough, here's
the latest rendition...
Unbelievable huh ? The "code
monkey" tests code performance inline in one method based on ONE
iteration. I mean seriously, the guy obviously has no clue. No self
respecting developer/programmer would ever do that. Oh but that's not the
cruncher. The real cruncher comes when he shows how cool he is and reads
the IL.. or NOT. No seems blunder brain can't tell the difference between
managed code and unmanaged code. Unbelievable. Get this.. he
claims "calling into old VB6 libraries using COM
Interop". As Cory says,
what a load of crap. The guy is totally clueless.
But wait.. it gets even better. Next another C# elvis
wannabe impersonator quotes the "code monkey" as his source of proof.
yep that'd be the evlis's jumping out of the plane together without a
parachute. Talk about lemming syndrome.
Of course not ALL C# developers are like these two bozos. But many
are. And what's worse is they have blogs, but never listened to their
mummas when told to think before they opened their mouths. Morons and
Lemmings .. <sigh>
