You know you’re a programmer.

  1. when you spill coffee on your laptop and aggressively press Ctrl+Z to undo the error.
  2. when you try to Ctrl+F in a printed book.
  3. when you spend a day to find the problem and you fix it with one line of code.
  4. when your code works and you have no idea why. when you tell a programmer joke and nobody understands it.

Most programmers struggle with two thing

  1. naming things and cache invalidation.
  2. the right amount of curses mixed with just enough coffee.
  3. other programmers and other programmers’ code.
  4. debugging and more debugging.
  5. coffee and bugs.

The first rule of programming

  1. never ask “why?” Just be grateful it works!
  2. if something looks easy, it’s hard; if it looks hard, it’s almost impossible.
  3. if it works, don’t touch it.
  4. never write standardized code, so no one will want to steal it.
