Programming Languages: More Powerful with Less Freedom?

by Sadek Drobi Follow 0 Followers on  Mar 21, 2008 2

In quest for more power, languages are often grown with new features. While it provides programmer with more freedom, does this actually achieve more power? Reg Braithwaite believes that this is not necessarily true and argues that it is possible to render language more powerful yet limiting options offered to programmers.

Designing for flexibility and robustness: Asynchronous message model, OOP and Functional Programming

by Sadek Drobi Follow 0 Followers on  Nov 15, 2007 4

According to Pragmatic Programmers it is preferable in OOP to avoid design based on returning values. Michael Feathers argues that it may also be better to use the asynchronous message model that might be instrumental for improving adaptability and robustness. This maps well to the Erlang model though opposing some of the principles of pure functional programming.
