Programming

The First Rule of Programming: It’s Always Your Fault! (Jeff Atwood)
Programming in itself is just an activity, like brushing your teeth. In the same way brushing your teeth doesn’t make you a dentist, writing code doesn’t make you an engineer, artist, or scientist. (Christopher Diggins)
It turns out that style matters in programming for the same reason that it matters in writing. It makes for better reading. (Douglas Crockford)
The art of programming is finding patterns where others see only chaos. (Eric Filson)
Measuring programming progress by lines of code is like measuring aircraft building progress by weight. (Bill Gates)
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. (Rich Cook)
Programming can be fun, so can cryptography; however they should not be combined. (Kreitzberg and Shneiderman)
Without requirements or design, programming is the art of adding bugs to an empty text file. (Louis Srygley)
Low-level programming is good for the programmer’s soul. (John Carmack)
Programming is not a zero-sum game. Teaching something to a fellow programmer doesn’t take it away from you. I’m happy to share what I can, because I’m in it for the love of programming. (John Carmack)
Programming is one of the most difficult branches of applied mathematics; the poorer mathematicians had better remain pure mathematicians. (Edsger W. Dijkstra)
Controlling complexity is the essence of computer programming. (Brian W. Kernigan)
In programming, the hard part isn’t solving problems, but deciding what problems to solve. (Paul Graham)
Computer programming is tremendous fun. Like music, it is a skill that derives from an unknown blend of innate talent and constant practice. Like drawing, it can be shaped to a variety of ends – commercial, artistic, and pure entertainment. Programmers have a well-deserved reputation for working long hours, but are rarely credited with being driven by creative fevers. Programmers talk about software development on weekends, vacations, and over meals not because they lack imagination, but because their imagination reveals worlds that others cannot see. (Larry O’Brien and Bruce Eckel)
The best book on programming for the layman is Alice in Wonderland, but that’s because it’s the best book on anything for the layman. (Alan Perlis)
Programming is like sex. One mistake and you have to support it for the rest of your life. (Michael Sinz)
About programming: It’s the only job I can think of where I get to be both an engineer and an artist. There’s an incredible, rigorous, technical element to it, which I like because you have to do very precise thinking. On the other hand, it has a wildly creative side where the boundaries of imagination are the only real limitation. (Andy Hertzfeld)
Programming is similar to a game of golf. The point is not getting the ball in the hole but how many strokes it takes. (Harlan Mills)
You cannot teach beginners top-down programming, because they don’t know which end is up. (C.A.R. Hoare)
Programming is an art form that fights back. (Anonymous)
Programming would be so much easier without all the users. (Anonymous)
This reminds me of a quotation from somebody that, whenever he tried to explain the logical structure of a programming language to a programmer, it was like a cat trying to explain to a fish what it feels like to be wet. (Saul Gorn)
I am rarely happier than when spending an entire day programming my computer to perform automatically a task that would otherwise take me a good ten seconds to do by hand. (Douglas Adams)
First learn computer science and all the theory. Next develop a programming style. Then forget all that and just hack. (George Carrette)
To iterate is human, to recurse divine. (L. Peter Deutsch)
Projects promoting programming in natural language are intrinsically doomed to fail. (Edsger W. Dijkstra)
Programs must be written for people to read, and only incidentally for machines to execute. (H. Abelson and G. Sussman)
A most important, but also most elusive, aspect of any tool is its influence on the habits of those who train themselves in its use. If the tool is a programming language this influence is, whether we like it or not, an influence on our thinking habits…. A programming language is a tool that has profound influence on our thinking habits. (Edsger W. Dijkstra)
