Dev Talk Monday: Programming is terrible, lessons learned from a life wasted

Dev Talk Monday is the series that brings you awesome dev talks every Monday

Thomas Frigg brings this hilarious (and insightful) 40 minute talk about the world of programming . If you are a programmer, you will probably love it :). Don’t forget to take a look at the slides while watching it, they’re great.

I thought I would share a couple of tips on how to be a succesful programmer…

…Don’t write documentation, documentation means that you are replaceable…

… if you fix a bug, make sure it fixes only that case they talked about, so someone else can reopen the bug later..

… the standard library is evil, don’t use things other people understand, the best code is the one that you have written yourself…

Have an awesome week!:)
