A number of monks have said kind things about Flow-based programming (FBP), which is near and dear to my heart. I am a very new novice in the Monastery, and am not yet a Perl user (blush), but I thought I would ask for feedback on what direction we should take FBP. So far, neither the business world nor academia seem terribly interested, although, as I have tried to show in my book, I believe FBP could really revolutionize the way we build and maintain business systems.

We do have a Java implementation of FBP - should we have Perl, Python, Ruby implementations...? Or go in a completely different direction?


PS I went to an English public school, so I do have some monastic experience...
