Can Your Programming Language Do This?

by 3 others
The really interesting thing I want you to notice, here, is that as soon as you think of map and reduce as functions that everybody can use, and they use them, you only have to get one supergenius to write the hard code to run map and reduce on a global massively parallel array of computers, and all the old code that used to work fine when you just ran a loop still works only it's a zillion times faster which means it can be used to tackle huge problems in an instant.

Mastering recursive programming

by 4 others
Recursion is a tool not often used by imperative language developers, because it is thought to be slow and to waste space, but as the author demonstrates, there are several techniques that can be used to minimize or eliminate these problems. He introduces the concept of recursion and tackle recursive programming patterns, examining how they can be used to write provably correct programs.

wg:Javascript: what's next?

by 4 others
Content, structure and presentation are now precisely defined, but I believe that the behaviour layer is too tight for javascript, javascript is not only about events, and separation is not good for the evolution of javascript. Modern javascript is in fact breaking the layer-model we thought was correct. I believe it’s perfectly logical to have presentational javascript which can go throughout structure and presentation.
