once again fondly recalling the guy designing a DSL who insisted on static types because how can you possibly program without them, but refused any kind of static null checking because c++ doesn't have that and it works fine so it must be unnecessary
@unascribed that drives me up the wall but honestly the explanation seems to be that c++ programmers think "static typing" is literally "whatever c++ does", similar to how they define OO
sorry I just learned that one this week and any perceived hostility was directed at C++, not you :)
@fraggle Don't worry haha, I don't take things against myself. You have several ways to actually construct stuff in C++ and most courses are outdated or given by people that did Java for their entire life
@eevee i would ask for a “c++: a fractal of bad design” post but that would be giving it the credit of saying it was designed
