    You missed stating Erik Meijer is the host. He doesn't mind, but I do ;) him as the host doubles the fun!

  • Native code is not only C and C++

    What I don't get in this type of panels is that every time native code generation gets discussed, some people tend to associate it with C and C++, given their default toolchains tend to be ahead of time compilers.

    Which is fine.

    However there are plenty of safer languages, with similar ahead of time compilers in their toolchains that seem to be ignored in such discussions, mostly on purpose, I would say.

    Thanks Ravindra for pointing this out. I've added Erik Meijer's details to the summary, and Todd Montgomery gets a namecheck in the Bio section.

  • Simply loving Erik out loud

    I really liked Erik's trolling as a panelist/moderator. It really livened up the discussion.

  • More productive?

    Sigh. As usual, people tend to associate "less typing" with more productive. It isn't true. What makes something productive is framework support, developer knowledge/experience/ability, tooling support and etc.

    For instance with groovy i end up typing more than in java because i have to retype or fully type because I don't get as good as support from my IDE. Not saying Java is better , just saying things are not always as they seem. For someone who is an excellent typist and has total and immediate recall - they will do better with Groovy than me.
