One of my most productive days was throwing away 1,000 lines of code.
-- Ken Thompson


The most depressing thing about life as a programmer, I think, is if you're faced with a chunk of code that either someone else wrote or, worse still, you wrote yourself but you no longer dare to modify.
That's depressing.
-- Simon Peyton Jones – Coders at Work ∞2009


Show me how you handle errors and I'll tell you what programmer you are.
-- Bartosz Milewski

some Joe Armstrong quotes from his "The mess we're in" Talk:

"A book is just a big comment"
- if you don't have a book, you don't know how the bloody program works

"Without Google and Stackoverflow, programming would be impossible ..."

"Without an internet Connection, I cannot program"



he's so beast.

Code: [Select]
18:36 < edwardk> hass: my way to construct big software in haskell is to just build up all the
                 little pieces i need to talk about the problem domain, then the final construction
                 is pretyt obvious
18:38 < edwardk> i build all the little pieces and try to make them the best versions of themselves
                 they can be with very little thought to how they fit into the whole, then just
                 look at how the parts want to fit together.

nothing most programmers are familiar with. it's a different paradigm. it's in the functional programming language family, but also the ML style of languages, and it's purely functional, not just functional.

if you're familiar with languages like go, java, c, php etc, then learning haskell is almost like learning to program from scratch. If you use javascript in a "functional style" and obviously have experience with promises/callbacks/closures etc, then some of those things will transfer over to haskell's lambda's, maps/folds/functional operations on lists etc.
