Evolution (or the lack thereof) and future of the OpenEdge ABL

  •  Hahaha. More toys for boys!

  • Much agreed Gus.

    I would appreciate some argumentation here (links are perfect) as many members seem to love making everything more complex / less maintainable.

    I love refactoring macho code (made with toys for boys) and half work, but would rather build some more new things. :-)

  • A mass of ideas www.youtube.com/watch

    Domain driven design, FP vs  OO and typesystems. Use them to your benefit.

  •  I would like to cut it down and reject monstertrucks. Also: a plaster upon a plaster does not help much in healing the wound - also read the famous paper "out of the tarpit" http://curtclifton.net/papers/MoseleyMarks06a.pdf for a "potential complexity-minimizing approach", the paper is a reaction on the book "Mythical man month" by turing award winner Fred Brooks who talks about "Software like a tar pit: The more you fight it, the deeper you sink!" (know your classics!) -.
