I’m too old for this kid stuff! As we used to say (about sex) “I’m old enough to know better, but too young to resist”.
From my experience in Silicon Valley – I knew there had to be a better way to write software. And Functional Programming is probably that way.
So why isn’t it used more? Because it uses a different programming paradigm – that makes programmers think differently – but also because the companies who hire these programmers – are not interested in better software.
How many products have you used, that are hard to use? Or don’t work at all?
You probably thought something was wrong with you – but it was probably the software.
