Welcome to the forty-eighth issue of De Programmatica Ipsum, dedicated to the subject of Evolution, and closing the 4th year of publication of this magazine.
This month we have news to announce. From now on, this magazine will include a new section: Vidéothèque, where we will talk about important videos online related to the practice and activity of programming. This 48th edition is also the first one without the active participation of Graham, who for professional reasons has been constrained to step aside from contributing.
In this edition:
- We will analyze how Alan Perlis thought programming languages would evolve from 1966 to today.
- In the Library section, we will talk about “Platform Revolution” by Parker, Van Alstyne, & Choudary.
- In the new Vidéothèque section, we will talk about the time Bret Victor took us on a trip to 1973.
We would also like to thank our patrons who generously contribute every month (or have contributed in the past) to our work, and help us run this magazine. Thank you so much! In alphabetical order: Adam Guest, Adrian Tineo Cabello, Christopher Nascone, Jean-Paul de Vooght, Patryk Matuszewski, Paul Hudson, and Roger Turner.
