15:43 jeffreykegler A blog post on things you *don't* learn even if you have a software engineering degree.
15:44 jeffreykegler I'm not surprised to see that regular expressions are on the list.
15:44 jeffreykegler * I'm not -> I am
15:46 jeffreykegler I am not surprised to see that parsing is *not* on the list, and not because it's taught, but because apparently nobody even considers the possibility of teaching it.
15:47 jeffreykegler I'd like to see language-driven programming emerge as a major programming paradigm but it will have quite the uphill battle if nobody really understands what a language is.
15:50 jeffreykegler And it currently explains why work on new languages this days is strictly derivation -- doesn't really try to break major new ground.
15:50 jeffreykegler * derivation -> derivative

20:12 jdurand_ Re http://irclog.perlgeek.de/marpa/2014-06-03#i_8813313 - I have the feeling that python have the same debate as perl about its decreasing popularity - itself being driven by statistics that are themselves debatable at least, wrong at last btw...
20:15 jdurand_ Re http://irclog.perlgeek.de/marpa/2014-06-04#i_8820356 - all the mentioned points are valid at least IMHO - parsing is of course not on the list as you noticed - I hope my marpaXml will sched light on Marpa, i.e. on parsing again - I am progressing well, and indeed is pretty sure a new xml parser library in the programming world should make the buzz (as I though when I started with the unfinished SQL parser btw)
20:16 jdurand_ [I meant I think an complete SQL parser writen from scratch would have make the buzz as well -;]
