    the evening Language Wars This was an opportunity for four local developers to advocate their favourite development language and discuss their relative values The lineup was Mike PHP Lee Ruby Brian TCL Alex Python In his speech Mike disussed how a large community and low barriers to adoption were a major advantage of PHP He felt that language benefits from its lack of structure and that every task can be completed in many many different ways using a myriad of different functions and modules Interestingly it is this proliferation that is also a major negative as due to having no firm coding convention means that it is often hard to support other peoples code Lee on Ruby Lee gave a great introduction to Ruby its Japanese roots early adoption in the East and migration to Western countries Lee felt that Ruby had advantage over PHP because its code structure is very structured leading to easily maintainable code The advent of the Rails framework has helped to drive adoption of Ruby and it is gaining interest from mature PHP developers and perl developers In the general discussion it was felt that while Ruby was rather processor intensive perhaps in comparison to perl PHP etc it was agred that the cost benefit of rapid development and easily maintainable code was a major advantage Brian gave an excellent introduction to Tcl Tool Command Language pronounced as tickle Starting in 1998 the language was born out of frustration with programmers devising their own poor quality languages intended to be embedded into applications It quickly gained wide acceptance on its own and is generally thought to be easy to learn but powerful in competent hands It is most commonly used for rapid prototyping scripted applications GUIs and testing Alex listening Alex spoke on behalf of

    I have not missed anyone out The facilities that the University are offering us are excellent and free of charge with 3 lecture rooms plus some communal areas for more informal sessions The only slight downside is that there is no Internet access so we will have to rely on 3G dongles etc We are going to try to grow the group and see how things develop over the next few months The target for next month is to get 40 people attending so everyone who attended needs to bring a friend The consensus from last night was we want to keep the meetings informal lightly structured with Birds of a Feather talks Lightning talks and general discussions followed by a trip to the pub for the all important chat over a pint Posted September 23rd 2008 in Uncategorized 3 comments SuperJobs SuperMondays Network Flickr Other usergroups Discuss Archive November 2014 October 2014 September 2014 August 2014 July 2014 June 2014 April 2014 March 2014 February 2014 January 2014 November 2013 October 2013 September 2013 August 2013 July 2013 June 2013 May 2013 April 2013 March 2013 November 2012 October 2012 September 2012 July 2012 May 2012 April 2012 February
