Dynamic Language Weenies?

March 26, 2007 ·

Via my Adobe colleague, Andrew Shebanow, Hacknot has some choice words about dynamic programming languages. Read both blog entries and make up your own mind on this. I love HackNot but it generally takes a very black and white view on things. Andrew, who is essentially taking over my old team, is a proponent of dynamic languages (as am I) and he feels that HackNot's analysis is thin, to say the least. I'm a big proponent of dynamic languages and have to agree with Andrew that HackNot's arguments are often specious in this particular scenario. It still makes good reading tho' - just substitute "ColdFusion" for "Ruby"...

    Cool! Now people can call me Dynamic Language Weenie. I look forward to the first insult.
