Leveson's class out early

Today Professor Leveson ended class early because she had gone through everything she wanted to. So nice to have a professor that does not just idly fill time.

The class itself was good as usual. We discussed object-oriented programming vs. functional. After that, we got into a discussion on reuse. It's' really interesting to hear the classes' opinions on different subjects. Very diverse.

Functional programming is very cool and
interesting. More fun than imperative,
like Java or C or Perl.

Java and to some extent C allow functional programming, e.g. But hey, the language is just trivial, it's all about the system architecture ;)

Mane the Mean said...

Yes, exactly.

But programming is fun too and extremely
important when implementing systems.
Or when evaluating architectures:
simulation etc requires some coding.

Most language are kind of trivial,
at least high-level ones, but being
a good programmer has always been
beyond my capabilities/patience.
