Object-Orientation is Dead, Too

June 8, 2016


Pragdave, the Cassandra of the software world, made waves with his “Agile is Dead” blog post and series of talks. Now he addresses another sacred cow, Object-Orientation. To quote Monty Python, it’s not dead yet. But it will be. Various functional techniques are proving to be more adaptable and more applicable to today’s multi-core, distributed, heterogenous world. So let’s look at OO’s problems, and then see how functional paradigms can address them. There will be much code.
