Weenie-bashing

Hacknot has put together a good article on the rise of the “dynamic” languages as we see it in publiscations all over. Ruby is the new shit. Or, as it may well be, not. Well worth reading.

Surprise of the Day: Ada 2005

Look what happends when I don’t pay attention: Ada 2005 is almost finished! Whee!I admit to having a soft spot for Ada. There were things I really liked, like type safety.
