Are you joining the containers revolution? Start leveraging container management using Platform9's ultimate guide to Kubernetes deployment.

Mike Swaim gave a presentation today entitled No Silver Bullet, an allusion to Fred Brook’s classic essay by the same title. You can download the slides here.

Mike discusses the pros and cons of the following software development techniques:

  • High level languages
  • Object oriented programming
  • Declarative languages
  • Functional programming
  • Data oriented design
  • Metaprogramming
  • Static typing
  • Duck typing
  • Garbage collection
  • Allocating on the stack
  • Tail calls
  • Resource acquisition is initialization
  • Symmetric multitasking
  • Heterogeneous multitasking


There’s a nice collection of links at the end of each section.










Check out the whole slideshow, attached, for all of the topics' pros and cons.
