I hired 10 software engineers in Pune, India. Pune is the university town where I finished my Masters in statistics. I have happy memories of this town.
(Shaniwar Wada Fort, Pune, India)
The software engineers use these names as if they are people, and talk as if their language was used by Shakespeare.
Listening to them, I imagined the following conversation between two neighbours with high tech kids:
A mother wants to brag about the brilliance of her son to her neighbour.
Isn’t that your son? I saw him yesterday.”
JSON works with some script.”
Why are you speaking in riddles?”
(Pointing to the clouds in the sky)
To read the information about us from the databases in the clouds, they use the same kind of a markup language.
As if it is not enough, they have to use some home presentation because you can’t see it clearly from the clouds.”
By this time real Jason walks in, and says to his mom and the neighbour,
“Mom, we are using HTML, which is a markup language. We use PHP, which is a server-side scripting language.
I am sure I explained to you both very clearly what we do. I have to go now because my colleagues are stuck in some doodoo of JSON (of course, not of your Jason but of our JSON).”
