The ARC for Memory Management

Archimedes (287 BC) said “give me a place to stand and I will move the earth”. Apple, after decades of lack of decent garbage collection to Objective-C, seems to say “I will give an ARC to exit to the dark hand-made memory allocation”. Let’see how.

Dynamic languages troubles

I have read http://www.manageability.org/blog/stuff/chandler-failure and I think it is very danger way of exposing concepts.

In the article pointed out, the quite dead Chandler project is compared to the multi-billion Eclipse project. And then a too easy analysis is done against dynamic languages, where Java is the absolute winner.

I will try to fix some of the things said there, and to add also my two cents here :)
