Macleod Sawyer recently wrote a blog post titled “9 truths that computer programmers know that most people don’t.”

While I believe there was truth in each fact, there were a few quotes that stood out.

“Under the hood, most critical software you use every day (like Mac OS X, or Facebook) contains a terrifying number of hacks and shortcuts that happen to barely fit together into a working whole. It would be like taking apart a brand-new 747 and discovering that the fuel line is held in place by a coat-hanger and the landing gear is attached with duct tape.” – Ben Cherry

“Programming is thinking, not typing.” – Casey Patton
