I'll see your 30 years and raise to over 35.
(And writing code that accesses hardware for 6 or 7 years before that.)

Both Java and go can look more like the K&R style C than any of the

as humanly? possible.

Those rust examples seemed to be of the horrid microsoft sytle.
Nothing about that style makes reading code easy.
