A few weeks ago I sketched some waves that got high in the community concerning an in the first glance not so friendly episode of the StackOverflow Podcast (see post “A Solid Audio Rant”). Besides other topics, Joel Spolsky and Jeff Atwood, the guys performing on that podcast, talked about the SOLID principles advocated by Robert C. Martin (aka Uncle Bob).
Now by chance I found a letter that Uncle Bob published on objectmentor.com in reaction to the offensive StackOverflow-Episode: An Open Letter to Joel Spolsky and Jeff Atwood.
And that letter is really interesting if you just listened to the podcasts I mentioned in my earlier post. Because in that podcasts the climate changed from ranting to an almost esteeming atmosphere. But as we now can read from that letter mentioned above, Mr. Martin’s first reaction was not so friendly by really harnished (up to menacing steps towards legal contention).
So, check it out!
