The Sells Spout: OOD (The D Stands for "Dead In The Water")
The Sells Spout: OOD (The D Stands for "Dead In The Water") "Reading a very interesting book which I'll discuss in a future post, I came to a startling conclusion. As much as I love OO thinking and programming, OO databases are never going to fly. I realize that this may not be so startling considering how long OOD products have existed and how unsuccessful they've been so far, but the conclusion I came to was *why* they'll never fly. The reason is simple: the data itself is more valuable than the programs that use it."
