″ higher order functions like map/filter/reduce to be simpler”: do you find most other programmers find this too?
my experience is otherwise: i get a ton of pushback asserting this stuff is too hard to read and thus should NOT be use in our shop; somehow in python even using filter is more difficult than a list comprehension with an if!!???!!
I don’t really know what most programmers are like ¯\_(ツ)_/¯, I’ve never held a real software engineering job and most of my experience comes from my current attempt at building a startup. So far my cofounder seems fine with it, but we mostly work on different codebases.
What startup do you work on?
Leonard Recruiting. We’re a recruiting company for penetration testers, right now specifically web application pentesters. My cofounder and I have been working on the product part time for four months (way too long, I know) and we plan on launching our platform in about a week, which is an open, dynamic, live computer hacking exam. We haven’t even gotten seed funding yet, so it might be a little generous calling us a “startup”, though recently we’ve actually been getting some unexpected revenue by building out our exam platform for small businesses that my cofounder knows personally.
