With more than 700 programming languages in existence, the popularity of code generation and SDK services are on the rise. Humans think and dream in their native languages, and the same is true for most developers. It only makes sense that we’d better understand and interpret code—and the potential applications—when it’s presented in the programming language we’re most familiar with.
