A little fun for a Friday; here’s one of my favorite programmer cartoons!
And if we truly wrote code “for the computer” then really all we need are the same ones and zeros the computer uses.
(Although, to be really pedantic, the computer actually uses voltages to represent ones and zeros, not numbers or digits in any sense.)
((Although, to be ultra pedantic (and what coder isn’t), those big keys marked “1” and “0” are just switches that present those voltages, so… um… what was the point, again?))
The real point is that source code is for humans (Rule #2).
