    Just got more coffee... mmm.. nectar of life. Sunflower seeds though? Hmm.. I like them, but I never got down the art of eating them and spitting out the shells.. lol. I always end up just eating them. Your comments about programing are very true, you can pick up a new language quickly if you know the flow of things, just memorizing the new syntax... however I feel this is more true for object oriented languages or shell scripting.. but some of these new languages require you to think a lot differently, especially F sharp. Its hard for me to rework my though process. It doesn't flow the same way in terms of logic... maybe I am just lacking experience, but to me it seems like things are really changing and it's forcing us programmers to think about problem solving differently.

    How so very true this is.
    And with the dynamics changing with programming structure, the skills to be able to problem solve (and document) are really turning into a science and an art.

    I'm gonna disagree with you a bit on this one. I've been doing this for a very Looooong time and it's funny to watch paradigms come back. Admittedly with newer and better implementations, but alot of what is new is a more better take on something old in many ways. Truely new inventions are rare. There was an old "Function" language back in the 70's I think called APL ? kinda reminds me of F# in a way.

    That said, the things you said about Problem Solving skills, Technical Writing Skills, and Solid Coding skills and practices, will serve anyone well in any environment. The playing field will change, the tools will change, but at the end of the day computers are still stupid and only do what we tell them to, exactly as we tell them to, whether we really wanted them to or not

    Your view is not exactly disagreeing with what we are saying at all. Matter of fact, it falls in line with what my original comment was. Strong skills and solid practices are the foundation, and the programming language is just the vehicle.
    If you know how to drive, then the car shouldn't matter.

    But another analogy that comes to mind when you say paradigms come back, is that of the mainframe and terminals.

    That's one. The Web and Cloud in some sense kinda model that, especially early web app implementations.

    Distributed computing is another. Way back when IBM had a custom distributed Mainframe app SABER (I think) for the Airline reservation industry.

    Interesting little discussion we got brewing here. I wanted to stirr the pot a bit and throw in "qubits" into the discussion. Do you know about this? Superposition? Where a bite can exist in a 0 and 1 state simultaneously? Now I know you can't tell me that this an old technology re-emerging! Quantum computing is the true future of computer technology and it will radically alter how problems are solved. Check out this article for a good read http://www.nytimes.com/2010/11/09/sc...09compute.html.
