The Humble Programmer
2:16:14We read from and comment on Edsger Dijkstra's 1972 Turing Award Lecture called The Humble Programmer. Is the problem with programming that we don't recognize our own limitations? We'll explore that and more.
What's the relationship between abstraction and generality?
16:56Do abstract and general mean the same thing? I don't think so. I've actually stopped using the term 'abstraction' because it's so laden with semantic baggage. We explore what they do mean in different contexts, and why abstract is not a relative term.
Why is data so powerful?
8:30In this episode, we explore why Clojure's stance of not wrapping data much is so powerful in the world we live in.
