In 2006, my colleague Neal Ford coined the term Polyglot Programming, to express the idea that applications should be written in a mix of languages to take advantage of the fact that different languages are suitable for tackling different problems. Complex applications combine different types of problems, so picking the right language for the job may be more productive than trying to fit all aspects into a single language.
My programming career began in 1980, as a hobby growing up and an older brother mentoring me during his summer and holiday, etc. visits. Those are fond memories and I miss talking and being around him. Just like I miss our Dad.
Aside from having a lengthy personal history of being at the keyboard or wielding a soldering iron and other various tools through elementary, into high school and through college to this day.
Being a polyglot with computer languages is rooted in my background designing and building actual hardware from the ground up. Yes, I am One of Those Guys. I Love to Tinker with Things. Love Life and The Adventures of Living.
