Vanward Technologies just posted
their interview of me
On the menu:  testing, scripting  languages, IDE’s, and software in

There is one particular point I’d like to emphasize:

The reason why dynamic languages are not taking off as much as they should
is because of the lack of IDE support.  I urge all people who feel
passionate about their scripting language of choice to carve out some time from
their busy schedule and write a fantastic IDE plug-in.  Failure to do that
will condemn your language to a niche market forever.

For more details, please see the interview, and post your comments here.

And big thanks to Andrew for the interesting email exchange that led to this
