July PragPub Magazine
It’s the 10th Anniversary of
Of course there’s new stuff as well, from Antonio Cangiano and Marcus Blankenship and me, Mike Swaine. But we think you’ll enjoy these classic articles by Andy Hunt, Mark Chu-Carroll, Woody Zuill, and Venkat Subramaniam.
Andy, of course, needs no introduction, but his article, “All Your Context,” does. It’s not explicitly about programming. It does something that Andy does particularly well, stepping back and taking a look at the context of your decisions. It will definitely give you something to think about.

Venkat Subramaniam is my favorite explainer of programming concepts. And functional programming is a topic I’ve been promoting for literally decades.

But today functional programming is mainstream, to the point where venerable languages like Java are providing the tools to develop functionally. This article by Venkat talks about how to actually start thinking in functional terms while using Java.
And of course Antonio Cangiano has all the new tech books, John Shade weighs in on what’s annoying him, and there’s a puzzle! We hope you enjoy this 10th Anniversary issue of
