Need more patterns!
Oh, good show on this article! Ignore the naysaying ninnies, they haven't paid attention to squat!
Software design is old. "Patterns" are just some fancy names for stuff we've been doing all along. What always amazes me is that software design and engineering JUST ISN'T BEING TAUGHT!! The design books from COBOL are still relevant! Object-oriented languages sprouted in the 1960s, with Simula. And you guys make a pretense that you have something that is wonderful and good? Heck, no! Multics, from 1965, had more security than our current OSes!
Just because somebody did something today doesn't mean that they did something better than yesterday. For some reason what was learned DECADES ago isn't being taught today. WTF is wrong with the educators? They are supposed to prepare students to be effective programmers, not screw around on their little fief and produce morons. Students coming out of colleges can't even type, use an OS (Windows or Linux), or even hook up a computer to a KVM. Colleges are nothing but a debt machine.
What you knuckleheads don't understand IS THAT YOU AREN'T BEING PAID TO BE SCIENTISTS! You are being paid to get an application out the door. Got the concept?? Vocation and business go hand-in-hand. If the state of computer languages upsets you, go and design one yourself! And remember, it needs to get things done in the real world!
