It's Monday, it's snowing, and I'm actually happy to be at work!
I found this link on reddit.com
“I’m happy to grow up, but I won’t pretend fun things aren’t still fun out of fear of looking silly
Ok, I didn’t laugh hysterically at the comic. But I love the sentiment. Raising my son
in partnership with my wife is a lot of fun, and that involves a serious
amount of growing up.
Why should programming be any different? Business is almost
as serious as nurturing a life. It’s generally considered good form to enjoy parenting. Why shouldn’t we enjoy writing software the exact same way?
Sure, we don’t decide to rewrite an entire business application in CPS
on a whim because it seems like it might be fun to try. Just as we don’t teach our children to eat Train Cake
for every meal.
Let’s not pretend fun things aren’t still fun out of fear of looking silly. Programming is “Grown Up.”
