General Development "Programming is hard. Don't ever feel bad because you aren't as good at 'just googling it' as the person next to you. Don't ever let hackathon snobs talk you out of creating the next Twitter for cats or Yelp for public washrooms. Even the dumbest ideas (like trying to make animated polygons disappear and reappear) will help you improve as a programmer. Learning to program is largely about learning to learn - and the best way to learn is to do." For some reason, I love this short story.

To be fair though, I'm just jaded because of age. I've seen the evolution of the PC, been a part of the cyclic evolution of workstations (dumb terminals connected to mainframes; through to powerful desktop workstations and now back to terminals hooked up to powerful centralised servers (except this time it's web-based cloud services instead of TSS served over telnet)).


I know it, right!!!!!! Same here. Started back in the early 80's with DEC and have seen a lot of changes in the business. Education-wise as well... CS majors have changed a lot since I went to school.
