  • Some of us start collaborating on a Catalyst article. A lot of discussion on what the example should be.

    There is a reason everyone does the "Hello World" thing. It makes it very easy to compare amongst languages.

    More importantly, it is something the reader may already know how to do in some other language. This makes evaluating the technology against what the reader already knows much easier.

    With that said, may I suggest the ever so typical and boring database application?
    • Add entries
    • Edit entrie
    • I'm not sure it does make comparing decent technologies easier. Sure, "Hello, World!" in J2EE fares particularly badly, but J2EE supposedly has lots of advantages for more complicated tasks.

      If it's a completely new language, it's probably the right way to start, but if you want to show off a platform or framework to people who will compare it to others, choose an example that shows off your strengths.
