Suppose you are developing the front end + backend of an app running on either AWS or GCP.
What language would you choose and why?
ELisp is for free because Emacs users need ELisp.
SQL for free since every backend dev needs some SQL.
EDIT: You can also have shell of your choice for free.
The question is what other language would you need?
My personal prefernce would be Go:
- can be used for scripting, interpreter starts up as fast as Python/Ruby
- decent library support, has backing of Google
- static types
- AWS Lambda suport w/o building custom runtime
What language would you pick and why?
