Thanks to Andrew at work for the heads up regarding the API War article just out by Joel Spolsky. Knowing that there are many who won’t have read this article yet even though it’s heavily doing the rounds of the blog circuit, I’m mentioning it here.
Joel sheds some interesting light on various attitude changes that have taken place in the last 20 years of software development. He’s well-positioned to comment between his 13 years of programming experience and his former role as head honcho of Excel at MS.
An excellent read – highly recommended.
