““Programmes must be written for people to read,
and only incidentally for machines to execute.”
“Always code as if the guy who ends up maintaning your code
will be a violent psychopath who knows where you live.”
“Any fool can write code that a computer can understand.
Good programmers write code that humans can understand.”
“Give a man a program, frustrate him for a day.
Teach a man to program, frustrate him for a lifetime.””
Programming today is a race between software engineers
striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the
Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots.
So far, the Universe is winning.
