breach a security system on a computer or website. The script kiddie lacks the imagination andinitiative to write their own code. As this can be seen as negative, I do believe it can preventwasting time. The individual must cite the code they copy.Code monkey's simply write the code according to the specs of the design. Code monkeys areusually not involved in the design process. While code monkey's do not design, they will be ableto point out flaws in the design process that will outcome either a new code or new design.The difference between a script kiddie and a code monkey is the code monkey's ability to writetheir own code to meet a project. Code monkeys seem to carry a better reputation unassociatedwith hacking into things.I would not imagine a script kiddie who copies others work could possibly make more moneythan a monkey, programmer, etc. The script kiddie would get stuck the second they are asked tohack something that doesn't already have code written for it whereas the code monkey will beable to create code. It greatly depends on the position of the employer for the outcome ofsalary. A freelancing script kiddie or monkey may make more money than a corporateprogrammer. In other cases, the corporate programmer will make more money.I'm not so sure the script kiddie fits into the Christian Worldview as easily as code monkey's orprogrammers. The issue is the concept of plagiarism followed by what appears as unethicalhacking. This can easily be fixed by citing coding if granted permission and only accepting ethicalhacking projects.It seems code monkey and script kiddie are two terms most computer science college gradsassociate themselves with. These college grads find a coding job and deal with "impostersyndrome." Some days they feel like they know what they are doing and self-identify as a codemonkey and other days they may be the script kiddie, copying and pasting someone else's work.
I would like to be both a script kiddie and a code monkey. I, like most people, like to worksmarter not harder. If that means properly citing someone else's code to then add a little of myown code on top to complete a project, then I believe that is ok.The most known programs like Python, Ruby, and Pearl can be used to create PC/Macoperating systems, however, C/C++ seems to be the most used programming language. Cis the most practical language to use when creating OS systems because it can code inhigh- and low-level languages depending on the need. Scripting can be used for driversand kernels and programming used to create software/applications. Drivers and kernelsassist with running processes and hardware. C allows data to travel freely betweenprograms and has been classified has extremely portable.Python and Java take the lead again when it comes to best programming language todevelop a software or application. Python is the most favorable due to its universality.Major companies like Google and YouTube rely on Python to support their mobileapplication used by millions.
HTML and CSS are the commonly used for developing website applications. HTMLsupports the foundation of the website's layout while CSS can be used to design a
