Today’s quotes

with 2 comments

Seen on reddit today. A bit of XML and Java-bashing never hurts…

“Java is a DSL for taking large XML files and converting them to stack traces.” (twitter)

“XML is like violence. If it doesn’t solve your problem, you’re not using enough of it.” (slashdot)

“XML is a giant step in no direction at all.” (see also XML rant)

“The essence of XML is this: the problem it solves is not hard, and it does not solve the problem well.” (Phil Wadler, POPL 2003)
