a software development snob


I represent that.

There are languages, going back to BASIC, intended to be easy to learn and do a few simple things. Python is one of the latest of them.
My father was an electronics engineer, but he was able to use BASIC to make some tables of figures he needed. That's about all he needed a programming language to do.
I have seen newer versions of BASIC (VAX BASIC and Visual Basic) used for largish applications, but they weren't very good. The designers and developers didn't seem to have the proper mindset.
