Nice to see Cesar blogging again
, for those of you that don't know him. He rocks! :)
The go betweens on this one have been going on for some time. Dare has a good summary
. One of Havoc's comments was that Parrot
would (like the CLR and JVM) not cut the mustard. His reason was that Perl and Python would be no good for creating desktop apps. Parrot (like the CLR and JVM) can be the target for any compiler, its a little too early in its development (and if the basis was this then Parrot should have been left out of the discussion) to start seeing what Parrot will and won't be good for.
The world's longest book title? :) Brad has the heads up on this book
, I agree with Robert
that if you found the CLI Annotated book as useful as I have then its not to be missed.
I have just joined the XBox live masses, PGR is far too much fun...
Mono 0.31 has been released
, lots of work has been done including various ports and updates. If I find the cycles I am going to try and give Cesar some help with the JScript compiler, he is making good progress and its great to see it develop.
Sean Corfield points to announcement
by New Atlanta on there forthcoming BlueDragon (ColdFusion) for .NET product.
Joel has a great list of Rotor resources
, if you have just started with Rotor or you are an old hand at it you will find something of value here.
Been sick all weekend with a fever, I can handle just about most things but not fevers....brrrr.
Randy blogs that Tim Bray (who I must admit I did'nt know who he was until today), one of the authors of the W3C's XML 1.0/1.1 spec has joined Sun.
First day in his new job and what does he do, has a crack at Microsoft and .NET of course. I refuse to get sucked in but its sure to start a war of words somewhere, pointless, he should know better.
While viewing the MS Programming languages roadmap PPT
I noticed some mention of scripting and what is in store for scripting in Longhorn, a new command shell called MSH (codenamed Monad). Google shows its been covered quite well in blog space, however I am interested to see a merger of the command shell with the BCL and CLI supported languages.
One mention in the PPT is that MSH is 'As programmatic as Perl/Ruby'
, not sure what is ment by that?
