I usually only get my toes wet too, honestly. I like getting a taste of different languages but I only really learn a language when I have to; if I can find no other way to accomplish something than to write it myself.
I’m usually better at combining tools other people have written in order to accomplish the things I want to do. Considering that a lot of what I want to do has tools written by other people already, I usually don’t have to program something I want.
But, sometimes I do. I have ideas that I don’t find anywhere else, and I look for the laziest way to accomplish something, which oddly enough, can be very time consuming in itself
