@jplatte I regret to inform you that I made these myself... if you were in the Bay Area, I'd gladly give you some of mine. https://twitter.com/sdleffy/status/865809223841492992

IMHO, it's oversimplifying things :-) it treats programming as a single activity, while it is not. There are all of building complex software solutions, writing little hobby games, automating some repetitive part of an otherwise unrelated activity, just doing exercises for mind. Treating them all in the same way is not correct.

but the "paying" kind of programming, usually isn't very fun imho.

@snarf95_twitter Heh, WPF :) If it makes you feel any better lately I've been stuck in legacy WCF. I think WPF is the better TLA
