A Golf Club Decision - Perl to Java

Golf Club - Tee

There are times that Java is the right language for an application and Perl is the wrong one - to the extent that investment in a rewrite is correct. But they are pretty rare.

I was very disappointed to learn this week of a major company that is switching - not for technical reasons, but because of what one of my delegates described as a "golf club decision". Which was defined to me as a decision taken on commercial rather than technical grounds so that the big boss of company "A" - our new Java user - can play rounds of golf with the big boss of company "B" who are behind Java.

This is a page archived from The Horse's Mouth at http://www.wellho.net/horse/ - the diary and writings of Graham Ellis. Every attempt was made to provide current information at the time the page was written, but things do move forward in our business - new software releases, price changes, new techniques. Please check back via our main site for current courses, prices, versions, etc - any mention of a price in "The Horse's Mouth" cannot be taken as an offer to supply at that price.
