Ten Things I Hate About Object-Oriented Programming
Boy, I some days I really hate object-oriented programming.

Apparently I’m not the only one. In the immortal words of Edsger Dijkstra: “Object-oriented programming is an exceptionally bad idea which could only have originated in California.”

Software disenchantment @ tonsky.me
Only in software, it’s fine if a program runs at 1% or even 0.01% of the possible performance. Everybody just seems to be ok with it. People are often even proud about how much inefficient it is, as in “why should we worry, computers are fast enough”.

The “Developer Experience” Bait-and-Switch
"TL;DR: we cannot continue to use as much JavaScript as is now “normal” and expect the web to flourish. At the same time, most developers experience no constraint on their use of JS…until it’s too late. “JS neutral” and “TTI negative” tools are here, but we’re stuck in a rhetorical rut. We need to reset our conversation about “developer experience” to factor in the asymmetric cost of JS."

Protobuffers Are Wrong :: Reasonably Polymorphic
Protobuffers are clearly written by amateurs, unbelievably ad-hoc, mired in gotchas, tricky to compile, and solve a problem that nobody but Google really has. The bad design of protobuffers is so persuasive that these problems manage to leak their way into your code as well.

Protobuffers Are Wrong :: Reasonably Polymorphic
I've spent a good deal of my professional life arguing against using protobuffers. They're clearly written by amateurs, unbelievably ad-hoc, mired in gotchas, tricky to compile, and solve a problem that nobody but Google really has. If these problems of protobuffers remained quarantined in serialization abstractions, my complaints would end there. But unfortunately, the bad design of protobuffers is so persuasive that these problems manage to leak their way into your code as well.

"Protobuffers were obviously built by amateurs because they offer bad solutions to widely-known and already-solved problems."
