In my thirty years in this business, I have found
that a good programmer - one who understands how
a computer works - can switch between languages
That's because a good programmer is already fluent in at least three or
four programming languages (I could speak seven, three of them in more
than one dialect), including at least one assembler, and has WRITTEN at
least the parser for a compiler (my compilers class wrote one for a
degenerate subset of Modula-2), by the time he or she gets his or her
At least if the diploma is worth the artificial parchment it's printed on.
