Learning APIs

Posted on Nov 09 2004

Reading an article in French CS magazine, a quote from someone at Sun (doesn't remember who) was saying that languages are becoming more and more easy and fast to learn and that most of the time now are being spent on learning APIs. Well, I guess it's particularly true for Java and Python which have very few basic concepts and a lot of APIs barely trying to implement complexes schemes using them. When the APIs become so difficult to learn and use, not because of quantity but because of complexity, and when at the same time languages are recognized to be easy to learn, then it's a clear call in favor of adding concepts to ease API design and usage.
