"In December, I posted about my early thoughts on Scala after using it for a short time. Initially, I thought that using Scala didn’t buy very much – the functional style could be adopted in in Java, and the syntax and libraries could be ugly. Since that time, I’ve been using Scala almost exclusively, and I wish to revise my view: Scala is awesome."

"For [my] research I wanted to test the frequently cited claim by proponents of dynamically typed programming languages that static typing was not needed for detecting bugs in programs. [...] The results of this experiment indicate that unit testing is not an adequate replacement for static typing for defect detection."

Sweet and clever: "Last Sunday, I taught six kids of ages 5 to 7 how to program. [...] The game works as follows: every kid is turned into a “robot master” and their mom or dad becomes their “robot”. I give each kid a “Robot Language Dictionary” and explain to them that this is the language their robot understands. The dictionary has symbols for “move left leg forward”, “turn left”, “grab”, “drop” etc."

"PHP is not merely awkward to use, or ill-suited for what I want, or suboptimal, or against my religion. I can tell you all manner of good things about languages I avoid, and all manner of bad things about languages I enjoy. [...] PHP is the lone exception."
