HobGoblyn:
Just watched this on YouTube, apologies if it’s been posted before.

It’s an hour long, but in my opinion well worth a watch

Didn't we already have one? -> Malbolge

This guy had both very strange opinions, and a poor command of facts lol.

COBOL is of course very far from being one of the worst programming languages. It's a bit wordy for HelloWorld, but scarcely more so than Java (perhaps he'll get to that). He also says it's from about 40 years ago. Uh .. it's from more than 60 years ago. I had a summer holiday job writing COBOL 40 years ago. These young people, I don't know ....

APL has nothing to do with the lambda calculus. It's an array processing language like R or numpy.

I'm only 5 minutes in ....

C is almost 50 years old and is probably the more popular and widely used programming language in the world. The is something to be said for old languages that are still in use. No need to reinvent the wheel.

There's another thread on that topic with ongoing debate...

JavaScript, Python, and Java have a *lot* more people writing code in them than C/C++ do.
