Allegedly, Dr. Dobb's Journal is dead. Frankly, Dr. Dobb's Journal been dead to me for a long time. The issues I've read have focused so heavily on things I just don't give a damn about that I never read it. However, maybe there's another reason it died. Read the big, bold cover story title on the cover:
Functional Programming: Has It's Ship Come In?
Notice anything interesting about that? The major title, on the cover, has a huge damned typo. "Its", not "it's". Maybe, just maybe, they had editorial quality issues? I make tyops (sic) all the time. This is a blog. Big deal. I don't stress about it too much. I am a bit embarrassed about the obvious typo in my perl.com article on lexing, but not enough that I ever sent them an email begging them to fix my mistake (you'll need good eyes to spot it and I don't blame them for missing it). But a print magazine? The cover of the print magazine? Wow. Just wow.
Irrelevant content (to me) and a huge typo on their cover. Now give me my dynamic languages journal and I'll be happy.
