A few days ago, he posted something on facebook about induction. There are two people who asked questions about it and Dr. Lisle answered them.
I’m interested about discussions like that so I’m going to put that discussion here in my blog so that it will not be lost on facebook. We seldom see discussions like this so I believe it is very important for them not to be lost.
Also, I’m not claiming that I understand everything in that discussion but I’m putting them here so that I/you can easily refer to it someday when I/we are already well equipped to understand them.
Robert Martin is talking about some important history of software development here; why we are where we are today.
I disagree with his conclusion in the introduction part – the years the first man and the first woman appeared – because I have a different bias than Uncle Bob Martin when it comes to the history of the human race (take note that all of us have some biases that influence the conclusions that we make)…
…but I really like listening to Bob Martin’s talks on software development
I only knew that Uncle Bob Martin has a blog just last year, 2016, (I think it was April) after a colleague posted a link of the blog post The Programmer’s Oath in out chat group at work.
I learned of the name Robert Martin from his book “Clean Code” which one of my co-workers made us read a few years ago. (I also read about his name and his books in John Sonmez’s blog and Scott Hanselman’s blog)
“Clean Code” was a very good book. I learned a lot from it.
