From Cibernética Americana


If you are a programmer/software engineer, whatever, people invariably want to know "what language you program in". I went to a four year university program and have 30 years of professional experience (2011) so I feel I can define myself as just a programmer, not a X programmer (see Bane). Nonetheless there is a factual, if not simple answer to the query. See the long (JDCM) resume ("Resume>>Resumes>>JDCM") for historical particulars, it's mostly been dialects of C which is what is mostly used, but the obverse indicates my preferences.

A little more to say on this:

  1. By C dialects, AKA Algol-like langs mean basically all the comon ones today. Virtually all of my paid experience is with them as of 2014.
  2. Smalltalk, the main exceptions to above, is probably the last I'll be able to do something with in DS. The paid experience with it was long ago.
  3. Haskell, Lisp, and Prolog will be integral in the MCP-DCP implementation.
  4. The method of ∫ is WFL, a generalization of the Burroughs MCP (currently Unisys) product:
    1. which uses an Algol68G backend
    2. which uses a prempt mode linux kernel
    3. and provides unified tasking across langs
    4. and a decomposition of tasks into a common lib of IAL design procs, with implementation spread across arbitrary application implementation langs, with Haskell as first among these, division of labor within my DS implementation as per the obverse.

Quadriga becomes a Troika

A consolidated, streamlining has been effected with lisp and haskell (and others such as ocaml) released to be just FPs, and some elements dropped in favor of what's actually shaping up. Root (talk) 19:41, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
