Whether one likes the TIOBE Index or not, this is bad news for us Smalltalk enthusiasts:
TIOBE Programming Community Index for August 2010
August Headline: Dinosaur Smalltalk falls off top 50
Smalltalk, the first pure object-oriented programming language ever, lost its position in the TIOBE top 50 this month. The same happened to the other well-known pure object-oriented language Eiffel a couple of months ago. This is probably part of the trend that languages are becoming more and more multiparadigm: both object-oriented and procedural with a functional flavor.
I took action and created this blog. Hope it helps somewhat.
How should Google respond to the lawsuit filed by Oracle about Java?
In my opinion Google should take the chance and replace the surface language of Android by something more modern and dynamic. They already replaced the Java VM. They can easily do it with the language as well.
If I were them, I would bring in Gilad Bracha, who worked with Lars Bak at Animorphic and Sun, and use his Newspeak language as the basis for Android. That would make a great language for the Android platform.
