Magpies and Shiny Things
Over at Coding Horror Jeff Atwood just posted The Magpie Developer. As somebody with a blog named “Shiny Things”, I’m well aware of my penchant for new technologies. Recently, it’s been Scala and Erlang.
The wise magpie doesn’t throw away his old shiny things. He takes what he learns from new technologies and tries to apply them to what he’s using now.
