I come from a different world of software. Web developers, apps, and other more modern stuff. These kinds of developers often aren't familiar with concepts like pointers or other lower-level things. Usually just use interpreted languages, with a couple exceptions. Lots of JS and lots of reliance of built-ins, libraries, and frameworks, instead of doing lots of things from scratch.

The people in my software development circles are often self-taught and only know higher-level languages. They might not know how to manually implement sorting algorithms, which is the kind of thing you might learn in computer science academia, but they know the idea of sorting and can just use a .sort() method. They might have never installed Linux, but their AWS instances run Linux. They don't know how to set up iptables, but they do understand the importance of firewalls and security, even if they don't know the specifics. Rather than being puritanical about language and design (and old school CS stuff in general), they just follow modern trends and make presentable products, perhaps without really having a great understanding of everything. Even so, these are the kinds of people who make the apps and websites you use every single day.

People having different backgrounds doesn't make someone a troll or an agitator, it just means they don't share your exact life experiences.
