Work as a “mechanic”???? Bro!

Design as many languages, frameworks, algorithms you want, if there are no so called “mechanics” then those languages are just a waste of time, if there is no developer that uses a language and puts the code into production then the effort of creating that language is wasted, developers are the ones who create stuff, who challenge the mainstream and think about ideas that no one could have imagined. Developers are the ones who are making the real useful stuff that people are using, so have some respect rather than calling them “mechanic”!
