Brief summary

There are always intense debates to be had when programmers try to decide what the best language will be to accomplish any given task.

In this episode, our co-hosts Alexey Vilas Boas and Rebecca Parsons are joined by Luciano Ramalho, renowned author and Principal Consultant at ThoughtWorks Brazil to explore programming language features and the benefits of thinking about languages in terms of labels — fundamental language features — rather than paradigms, such as object-oriented or functional languages.

Does thinking in terms of labels help you adopt different programming styles? Can focusing on labels make language syntax less daunting? Can you have too many labels? Listen in to hear the team in exploring new ways of thinking about language choices.
