Steven’s post is titled “On Headaches and Aspirin” and talks a lot about the programming model we find ourselves in today, including this great phrase:
you can’t teach people what aspirin is for until they’ve had a headache
The other statement that stands out:
What’s more, we have entered an age where programming is slowly but surely getting over its teenage infatuations. Functional programming has won. Lambdas and pure data are now topics you need to have mastered before you can call yourself properly senior. Though it’ll take a while before that revolution is equally televised everywhere.
