I'm starting to notice, that I've been probably spoiled beyond all redemption by the wonders of Java and Python. And by that, I mean the general relaxed feeling when developing, such as not having to deal with memory management* and so on. As I've been working with Java and Python all this spring (plus we use Java at work), now writing C++ for the sekrit projekt(tm) feels cumbersome.. Dealing with const references, virtual destructors, templates and whatnot just doesn't have the same effect for me it once did.. What's happening to me? Am I really getting tired of C++? 🙁
But wait! There's more.. *bows head in shame*
I've been further tempted to the Dark Side by my very recent interest in Qt Jambi and LWJGL.. 😛 I mean, what the hell, is there really anything stopping me of doing the sekrit projekt(tm) in Java, using LWJGL and Qt Jambi for the editor (ooops, slipped that out!)? I think not!
So.. Perhaps we hear more about these shocking developments later on. Perhaps.
*) Incidentally, I'm doing my bachelor's thesis on "Automatic Garbage Collection In Programming Languages".. 😉
