When working with someone who does it the first way, you'll often have to go back and redo their code the second way in my experience.

comment Language Choice for Algorithm Competitions
Do you feel hamstrung by the lack of built in data structures -- what if you need a linked list, self balancing tree, or hash table or something? Do you find it annoying that you'd have to be diverted spending time debugging these secondary building blocks that C#, Java, or C++ might give you?
