How do we kick our synchronous addiction?
: great post on the hazards of programming in an async framework, and how damn hard it is. good comments thread too (via jzawodny)
Interesting that in all that comment thread, there are several mentions of Erlang supporting coroutines, but nobody mentions Lua. Count the number of Erlang users, and the number of Lua users, and I’m fairly sure Lua would vastly dominate (and not just because of WoW: also because it’s so easy to get it working and so nice to embed).
