I am an engineer. I have engineered lots of stuff… currently, I’m doing educational robotics.
Yes. I’m familiar with programming languages.
Heh. So… Two C programmers are sitting at a bus stop. A guy walks up and says in Basic “When does the bus get here?” Well, the two guys don’t understand Basic so they just shrug. So he asks in Pascal. Again the two guys just shrug. Exasperated, he pulls out a stack of cards and a card punch machine and rephrases his request in Cobol. Again the two guys look at him with confusion.
So the poor guy leaves dejected. One of the C programmers turns to the other and says “You know, I always wanted to learn another language.”
The other turns and says “Why? That guy knew 3. He even had that card punching thing! It didn’t help him.”
The moral of the story? Know C.
These are the what now? Sorry. Never been there. Self taught.
Interestingly, my greatest expertise is probably in making pasta dough from eggs and flour, I seriously rock at that! But the real world usefulness is… meh.
Yes. Boatloads of them. Too numerous to count.
