Writing Code

Filed under: Personal,Technology; Author: Les Bain; Posted: March 26, 2008 at 4:03 am;

I was up late tonight writing PHP code.  I have spent many late nights writing code.  It is an immensely enjoyable activity.

  • It is a mental challenge – the ultimate puzzle if you will.
  • It is an effort to bring organization to chaos.  Writing clean code that automates a process helps define the process.
  • It is a creative effort.  Creating a system or a process that is a elegant solution to a problem is a creative act.
  • It is a constant reminder that big problems can be solved if they are broken down into bite size pieces and tackled one at a time.
  • And at this point in time in my life, it is a reminder that when an idea comes, it has to be immediately written down if it is to be remembered.  That is not a problem, it just requires a process to capture thoughts as I work.

Tonight was particularly rewarding because the script I wrote automates a process that I do with some regularity.
