[...] there does seems to be a growing deficit of big systems designers/programmers. Those that deal with mass amounts of data volumes in databases like Oracle and SQL server. So standards-based SQL PL/SQL and ability to do database schema design (that works) will probably end up being in high demand as everyone focuses on simple function disconnected systems.

Re: Which coding language is best to learn for the NWO
Most likely current languages will evolve therefore can't say this or this programming language will rule the world. C++ is right now a good academic language, so in the future can be built on it. Also, Python is picking up. Depending on age , I would say hands on play with programming controllers would also be a good base for the future , so would by an Arduino kit for lessons and have all kind of nice projects. Arduino uses own language derived from C. All a good base for future skills.

*YOU* are full of bullshit.

C++ is a horrible language. It's made more horrible by the fact that a lot
of substandard programmers use it, to the point where it's much much
easier to generate total and utter crap with it. Quite frankly, even if
the choice of C were to do *nothing* but keep the C++ programmers out,
that in itself would be a huge reason to use C.

In other words: the choice of C is the only sane choice. I know Miles
Bader jokingly said "to piss you off", but it's actually true. I've come
to the conclusion that any programmer that would prefer the project to be
in C++ over C is likely a programmer that I really *would* prefer to piss
off, so that he doesn't come and screw up any project I'm involved with.

C++ leads to really really bad design choices. You invariably start using
the "nice" library features of the language like STL and Boost and other
total and utter crap, that may "help" you program, but causes:

- infinite amounts of pain when they don't work (and anybody who tells me
that STL and especially Boost are stable and portable is just so full
of BS that it's not even funny)

- inefficient abstracted programming models where two years down the road
you notice that some abstraction wasn't very efficient, but now all
your code depends on all the nice object models around it, and you
cannot fix it without rewriting your app.

In other words, the only way to do good, efficient, and system-level and
portable C++ ends up to limit yourself to all the things that are
basically available in C. And limiting your project to C means that people
don't screw that up, and also means that you get a lot of programmers that
do actually understand low-level issues and don't screw things up with any
idiotic "object model" crap.

So I'm sorry, but for something like git, where efficiency was a primary
objective, the "advantages" of C++ is just a huge mistake. The fact that
we also piss off people who cannot see that is just a big additional
advantage.

If you want a VCS that is written in C++, go play with Monotone. Really.
They use a "real database". They use "nice object-oriented libraries".
They use "nice C++ abstractions". And quite frankly, as a result of all
these design decisions that sound so appealing to some CS people, the end
result is a horrible and unmaintainable mess.

But I'm sure you'd like it more than git.

Re: Which coding language is best to learn for the NWO
When I was young we did Turbo Pascal then Delphi Pascal. This language is no longer used, however the point was to develop the understanding on how to think. Same with C++, a fantastic academic language that most likely will relate to the future popular languages. It depends what ages we are talking about. My kid is only 8 so I guess in about 2-3 years we start playing with Arduino, some fun projects that require linear programming

Re: Which coding language is best to learn for the NWO
There's a sorta proverb that if you learn C you can learn most any compiled language. It hasn't gone away in 40 years, and the majority of modern languages are based on/inspired by it.

But for its place in systems programming, it's hard not to admit that Rust is possibly if not probably future. Both Rust and Golang are modern and will teach you good habits.

If you believe the NWO is pushing crypto as the future..
Solidity is the standard for smart contracts. It's on my TODO list to pick up :p

Meanwhile, some of the most in-demand career languages are arguably some of the worst to learn as a first language and will teach you bad habits.

JavaScript, C++, PHP, (imnsho) Python being the main offenders.

Teach them HOW to think, not what to think.
Don't get caught up in needing to code, like many have said here it will ultimately be computers that code.
Don't forget Bezos will be dead by the time your kids enter their careers and there will be industries around you never even heard of our thought would exist.

Here's a really radical thought though...how about hands off, teach the basics, and trust your kids will find their path which will be best for them. :-)

Good luck programming a robot or a missile with Javascript...

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 79287281

It doesn't really matter when it comes to teaching kids.

They can learn ANY language, they are essentially the same.

They differ here and there, but to learn the basics of programming it doesn't really matter, they all work on the same basic principles, so they will most likely change the first choice language before they get a job anyway. It is said that most programmers do. What matters is learning the basic principles and the rest are quirks and details.

C#, C++, Java will be more helpful to understand the underlying principles behind programming. A lot of things in Javacript are shortcuts and hacks designed to make things work quicker, but you might miss what's going on "behind the scenes".

The advantage of Javascript however, is that you can start hacking away simple visual apps very quickly, so a kid will have a motivation to continue if they see some results immediately.

With the other 3 languages, you don't really have much practical application for a kid learning at home. They won't be able to do anything fun in it for the first 2 years, if at all.

So IDK, it depends.
