Gorilla holding banana


Today I read a blog entry from Joel Spolsky about Coders at Work. Joel says that the content he blogged is the first chapter from this book. I like Joel’s writing a lot. I love his book Joel On Software. If you have never read it, now go buy it! I highly recommend it.

After his introduction about this book Coders At Work, I did some search and found that it is not available in Kinokuniya-Singapore, Border-Singapore and Singapore Library.

So I did even more search to know more about this book and then I found this one.I cannot stop laughing when I read Joe Armstrong’s comment about Object Oriented Languages:

“The problem with object-oriented languages is they’ve got all this implicit environment that they carry around with them. You wanted a banana but what you got was a gorilla holding the banana and the entire jungle.”—Joe Armstrong

Ha! Ha! Ha! Laugh your  heart out! What would Martin Fowler reply to this? I really want to know.
