Code Familiarization vs Road Familiarization
Saturday, 30 April 2011 17:16



I've always been bad at road familiarization. I get lost many times because I can't remember which way I passed. One night, while walking with my father on our way home, I made a wrong turn. I was walking 5 steps ahead from him then he called me. He said I'm making baseless turns. In our language, "Gapataka rajud ka ug liko". Then he added being too forgetful, I can't be a good programmer because I'd keep on forgeting the code. I disagreed. I justified dealing with code and the road are not the same.



1. I created the code. I didn't create the road.

2. I modified the code. I can't modify the road.


Just that. Familiarizing with something you've put effort in creating or improving is far more easier.
