Super-patterns: The ultimate problem of programming
I’m going deeper – and this is a difficult one to put into words. What is programming? Well, people might immediately think of ‘computers‘. After all, computers work on sets of instructions. But this post is about the human being, which is far more complicated than any computer! People areRead More
