The Hammer Principle - The right tool for the job

Alejandro Tejada
In this webpage, there is an open place for LiveCode:

http://hammerprinciple.com/therighttool

"We all talk about using the right tool for the job in
the context of programming items. But which job?
And what's the right tool for it?
I want your help in determining the answer for this."

All statements in this webpage remembers me
the endless debates about every programming
language in existence.

You could laugh:

or cry:
http://hammerprinciple.com/therighttool/statements/i-would-recommend-most-programmers-learn-this-lang

How could we request the inclusion of LiveCode among the
programming languages of this webpage?

Please include it in your list.

Perhaps as many people as possible on this Use-List could send similar
e-mails.

Right behind you, Richmond.


Probably better if the responses from here were paced, maybe over a week or two?

Applying computer technology is much like finding the right size wrench to pound in the screw.

Sorry, I can't resist throwing these things into the mix….
