|I understand why it’s important to invent PLs for the sake of research, exploring the computer science field etc.|
But why companies keep trying to push new languages to massive adoption.
Isn’t it like searching for holy grail that in the end makes us programmers life more and more stressful?
Instead of delivering the value and focusing on the task, on the product we spend half of the time just learning yet another new super puper technology. Which looks just like another one plus some sugar.
