4 Programming Paradigms in 45 Minutes by Aja Hammerly One of the most important lessons I’ve learned is that programming languages are tools and not all tools are good for all jobs. Some tasks are easier to solve functionally. Some are clearly suited for OO. Others get simpler when you use constraint solving or pattern […]
