That said, it isn’t for everyone. Bezanson says it’s not exactly ideal for building desktop applications or operating systems, and though you can use it for web programming, it’s better suited to technical computing.
Guess I should have read the full article before posting. I went straight to the Julia site and started looking at their docs. That quote alone would have made me pass judgement on the article title at least because it is a flat out lie. Though, I guess the title wouldn't have been as catchy if they had "Out in the Open: Man Creates One Programming Language to Rule Them All, Except <...>". Guess when you are hard up to have a catchy quote you rip from popular media you don't pay attention to the negatives.
"One ring to rule them all, except the Elves and Dwarves." Wouldn't have worked in LotR.
Don't tell me I'm the only one that thought of her
Probably not, but I didn't think of it because I have not seen Cowboy Bebop. Heard of it, but I spent more time watching Akira, DBZ, Gundam, Trigun, Outlaw Star, Vampire Hunter D, Blood, etc. I really do need to watch more anime.
Well, he was more than likely restating or paraphrasing what Karpinski told him so you can't really fault the writer for that line.
I can't do it, I can't bring myself to read past this border line autistic sentence, does the author think that ANY part of the computers operation between the user or programer and the machine DOESN'T go through at least a dozen translations?
Well, most media places that do articles don't require their writers to be knowledgeable of the subject they are covering. They only require they be good at writing.
No, that's not true at all. They only require that they find interesting stories to grab people's attention.
When I looked into what was required to become a writer for a magazine (I looked into game and computer mags because I had hoped to make a living writing game reviews and previews for EGM, OPM, or PC Gamer while building my programming skills) and all of them had the same process, the editor had a list of ideas that he would delegate to the writers, if there wasn't enough story ideas then writers would get to look for other stories to help fill the magazine.
Last time I checked the process was still the same.
its not meant to take anything over. i was reading the wired article and it seemed more of a multi-solution (theres a real term for this but im blanking) language. if you read the article you see that this was in response to him having to use a plethora of languages to achieve one goal
I'm having a hard time understanding how this language is different from Dylan. Maybe it is just because Dylan is the only other language I know of that has multiple dispatch and the syntax looks very similar.
