Subject: Re: Use Java! Was: becoming a better programmer From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: 22 Sep 2002 00:05:23 +0000 Newsgroups: comp.lang.c++,comp.lang.lisp,comp.lang.java.programmer,comp.lang.perl.misc Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Bart Lateur | Because things grow. There was no Genesis, "Pooff! And there was | programming." Instead, you get used to a certain way of doing things, and | these form an inspiration: wouldn't it be neat.... That's the way technology | evolves, and grows. Programming languages are not different in that regard. But why does every creation have to start at Day 1? The whole point with this learning from the experience of others thing is to pick up where the other guy went to take his rest after version 6 to behold his creation and see that it is good. -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
