So ordinarily, this post would have gone up as a link in del.icio.us, but the interesting part of it is actually a single quote that flows in the article but is not the main point. So I will just crib the interesting part here. It is worth reading the entire post as it is interesting, but what I want to call out is:

bq.IMO the real underlying problem is that as long as programmers expect to write a class and flip a switch to get a service or one or more RESTful resources then we have nothing really but RPC masquerading as something else. Both resource and service advocates would be well-off in trying to move the developer community to get past the “class is all I need” stage. If REST is successful in getting developers to get their hands dirty more power to it.

  • What does the word “Quality” mean?
    • it has few known defects in its current state, we have high confidence that we will not discover defects in its current state over time, [and] we will not create further defects…as we add to or alter its functionality in the normal course….

Paul Graham first wrote about a strawman hypothetical programming language blub that examined the constraints that people who choose to stay firmly embedded in only one language seem to impose upon themselves and their programming capabilities and creativity.

Steve Vinoski, who has been writing a bunch about some of the failures of RPC-style distributed systems technologies (and should know, having been involved in CORBA), I think just extended the theme to distributed systems programming here.

  • Healthcare Is A Hash Mistress | OSS Ramblings
    • This is the approach of my current employer to our major trade shows, and it is amazing how much of a difference it makes in how we are received by the attendees. It seems so simple, and it is so easy to do, but so few people do it.

  • “CodeClimber: “All I need is a Programmer”":http://codeclimber.blogspot.com/2008/04/all-i-need-is-programmer.html
    • In which we learn why separating roles into “business analyst” and “software developer” frequently fails to work as well as one hopes, or always devolves into factory coding where nobody questions if the bricks being built are assembled the right way.
