Can you please comment?

Sure, spend the next week read all the links and links and links of links I linked :)

He is talking about programming paradigms, a particular way to design and write programs , a particular way to speak/think about and solve problems

Its like eating a cow (or eating a horse), the goal is food in your employers belly, but how you go about it depends on how you think (what is humane? which cuts are kosher? ... ), what kind of hardware you have ( stone , steel, electric,... ), taste preference (steak? hamburger? sausage? bbq? ... ) ... some programming languages come with a really sharp and shiny meat slicer, while others only allow chainsaws

Its like fighting, or mixed martial arts, there is long range, short range, standup, takedown, ground, clinch, grappling, ... your might be a ground submission expert, but your opponent won't let you go to ground, keeps you standing ... you can win a lot of fights with just a ground game , but its best to have a plan/skills/vocabulary/technique for fighting at all ranges/stages -- even if your current opponent limits your choices

In all three cases, practice by solving real problems yields best results, allows you to adapt to any challenge .... but it's not like I consider myself there :)
