Geek Reading May 1, 2015

Today we focus on some development. First, Dave Winer at Scripting News talks about a bug being “reproducible”. For any software developer that needs to support a product, this can feel like the holy grail some days. The Breakfast Post shows us what 4 different flavors of ML look like when compared to Python. In addition to syntax, they look at tooling as well. Tooling is an integral part to languages anymore, so it is good to see it included. Behavior Driven Development has been gaining adoption, but according to a post on Java Code Geeks, Cucumber may not be the great idea that people were hoping. It is an interesting look at the library that has been synonymous with BDD.
