Most of us have probably heard of Functional Programming, Procedural Programming, and Object-Oriented Programming.

Here’s a new one on me. I was trolling freshmeat looking for updates that should be mentioned in the magazine and I saw the following:

Homespring is an esoteric programming language exploring the new "Metaphor Oriented Programming" paradigm. A homespring program represents a mountainside river system in which the behavior of the program is controlled by the breeding patterns of salmon.

First off, “Metaphor Oriented Programming?”
Secondly, Controlled by the breeding patterns of SALMON???

You’ve got to be kidding me. This has to be one of the weirder programming languages I’ve heard of…

Please tell me that they’re either kidding or are inmates in some software developer’s asylum (probably the one that I escaped from…)

No, this is not going to be in the Open Source Roundup for the magazine.


Current mood: my head hurts
