If you could end COVID-19 by sacrificing one programming language, which one would you choose and why is it PHP?


@fribbledom I'd sacrifice JavaScript, really. It's a language designed for a different purpose than what it is being put to use for today. Things have been added, but it's all mostly syntactic sugar. PHP gets hell for its syntax, but anyone taken a good look at the proposal for declaring private methods/properties in JavaScript? It's so bad the issue tracker for the standard is full of complaints, yet they plowed ahead anyway.
