Yeah, I’ve done lots of programming through the years. I use whatever I need to get the job done. Sometimes I write a program (did it for a living for a while once), sometimes I just have to cobble together a whole bunch of programs or apps in a chain in order to accomplish my goals. I use whatever works
I’m a “systems thinker” or “systems analyst”. I think of the “whole thing” at once and how it all works together.
