Re: Industry versus academia

How important are language/tool issues to businesses? From my limited
experience developing software (in small teams for small companies) I've
always found communication issues to be the most indicative factor of the
success of a project. The working programmers I know are much more fired
up about methodologies than monads (even when they know what monads are).

I think there might be bigger issues in software development that trump
the introduction of academic PL advances. JITS and GC don't fix mediocre
code, they help it stick around.
