irony

with 2 comments

Back in the day, Java was supposed to be our “write once, run anywhere” solution. Today, all those beans live on the server handling service calls from other “write once, run anywhere” RIAs. All that promise of fame and glory and they end up hiding in the background. Poor beans. They just weren’t flashy enough. heh.

Go with the flow

with one comment

Throughout my programming career, I have learned (and forgotten) Basic, Pascal, C, C++, Java…not to mention all of the various application-specific scripting languages that I can’t even remember the names of…but, throughout all that learning and forgetting, one thing remains constant: flow diagrams. Seeing them again this morning is like rediscovering that cozy old blanket from college.
