, the co-working space at the Canberra Innovation Network Incubator, held a debate this evening on what is the "World's Greatest Programming Language
". It was a little like Big Bang Theory meets pub trivia night. Dr. Lachlan Blackhall, CTO of Reposit Power was the moderator and kept the witty banter flowing.
David Peterson, CTO of ImageBrief representing functional programming and delighted the audience with an almost erotic description of the joys of FP.
Mike Leonard, Fivium, put the case for Google G.O., which could have just been "Its from Google", but was so much more.
Dr Ali Salehi, SensorFront Co-Founder, wrapped Python around us.
- Marcus Dawe, HealthHorizon Co-Founder , kept use sharp with C and C#.
There were some acronyms and a lot of laughs from the metaphors and something about how many monkeys you could wash). This reminded me a little of Dr Richard P. Gabriel and Dr Guy Steele presenting "50 in 50: 50 Programming Languages in 50 Years", with mention of Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid.
The next debate is swinging the dial all the way to 11 on business. I have suggested the topic be "What Color Should your Business Plan Be?".
