The reason for that is

The only people who should have access to your video and/or audio conferences are the people who have accounts created by your IT dept. and are logged in with verified credentials. Do you want just any old random Joe Shmoe attending your meetings where private IP is being discussed? Your "well designed client" would allow that. Not very smart.

NetApp reorg: Plans to 'scale public cloud', grow storage systems biz as company sheds hundreds of staffers

If you would just hire

Developers who actually know what they're doing instead of every chip-as-chips H1-B from everywhere-stan then you wouldn't need a language to save your ass.
