Audacity has a programming language.
People use it to abbreviate and automate audio tasks, such as squooshing the three Audiobook Mastering tasks down to one instruction or Macro.
Like a lot of other things, programming appeals to a certain mindset. When I was in school, we had programming courses and I vividly remember slogging through a lesson (correctly, as it turns out) and then looking over to my neighbor's lesson. He had done exactly the same job at twice the speed and half the programming steps.
OK. So a career in programming is not for me.
