I know we learn C at school for our own good, but it's incredibly frustrating.

And IRL I know that I will never use C because it will probably never be the right tool for what I have to do

why would use a C program to make a request to an API!!

And I compared it to node because that's what I know the best, but most "modern" languages would be similar I guess

I don't want to handle memory allocation to extract a value from a JSON file :blobthump:

@angristan
knowing how to do these things will help you, though. it's important to keep in mind, even in higher-level languages, when operations will need lots of allocations, because allocations are one of the biggest performance bottlenecks
