Pieces of modern Art

Posted on:January 29 2015

People sometimes forget that a programming language is a tool to tell the computer what to do, and to tell other programmers what you wanted the computer to do.
Programming languages are not a way to write a piece of modern art, to create algorithms in the most inconvenient, unreadable but shortest way possible. Unfortunately, some people seem to think that way. Fortunately again, this is also the reason why a lot of programmers still have a job.

Unfortunately, this also means, that programmers have to deal with completely unfathomable code some previous employee wrote every day.

Us programmers, we create most of the problems we have ourselves.

That reminds me of this :-) This will make sure you keep your job, or can come back after a year with a huge raise!
