Decisions, decisions

As developers, we are constantly making decisions about how to implement a feature, a business rule, a data schema, etc. Sometimes we even find ourselves questioning the decisions of others. For example, have you ever been visiting a website, or using a mobile application and asked yourself “why did the developer choose to do it that way?”

Last night, I stumbled upon an article that describes how some of the decisions made at the language level affect us as developers, and their cost impact on businesses. The choice of the C language to use NULL terminated strings may be the most expensive mistake in the history of programming!


Warning: this really is for the geekiest among you.
