Programming In The Language or INTO The Language
Addressed by Steve McConnell in his book “Code Complete”.
There are two different programmers in this world:
- Programmers who program in the language: He/she limits their thought to the language features (eg. if the language doesn’t support OOP concept, then the OOP knowledge cannot be implemented).
- Programmers who program INTO the language: He/she decide what thought that they want to express, and then determine how to express those thoughts into their programming language.
