  • ... do single language ever survive ? I like TPJ (I even wrote a short article for it) but to be honest the single-language magazines are always going to struggle. C/C++ User Journal - a joke for years - limps by. Microsoft subsidise a VB magazine that is basically just advertising to get the VB hoards to buy .NET or whatever else they're pushing next. There are Java and XML magazines too, but essentially TIMTOWTDI means that sometimes you have to read other languages to get ideas.

    Computer Language was a great magazine before it went bust and turned into the naff Software Development - Dr Dobbs survives but more and more as "I wrote this - let me tell you about it and you can buy it from me later"...

    A decent programming magazine should encourage you to look up from your niche, discard your blinkers - if only so you can decide that the way you're doing it now is fine... and for that you need generalism...

    All, of course, IMHO....
