Seems odd that C# doesn't show up at all. Maybe people just don't write about it because it doesn't need writing about; it's fully thought-out and coherent while JS is a mess of dialects, versions, and runtimes and a lot of passionate fanaticism. I mostly do server development and the C# stack is my preferred, even though I am absolutely no fan of Microsoft. I worked there six times over 1989-2009 and watched their decline closeup. But C# and SQL Server are good stuff.

I know enough JS to extend and maintain existing code but frankly I don't like it. Weak typing feels half-assed, using var instead of explicit declarations. Strong typing is my favorite feature of C#.

My takeaway from this article is that "people who write on Medium like JavaScript."

I learned C in 1986 and used it as recently as 2016. It doesn't have classes and it doesn't have garbage collection but it's sceaming fast.
