ABSTRACT
The guest editors discussed the pragmatics of multiparadigm programming with Neal Ford and Brian Goetz. Should the average team adopt MPP? Can it do so successfully? Neal argues that such teams can't afford not to adopt MPP, if they want to stay competitive. However, the risks can be mitigated by careful adoption, based on demonstrable value, with appropriate division of responsibilities among team members, based on their skills. Brian argues that developers often make poor choices, driven more by personal interests than by concern for what is ultimately best for team success. Neal offers some real-world examples of how Thoughtworks has used MPP effectively.
