Better Programming (Nick Hodges): “There’s no shame in being a craftsman — quite the opposite. We all admire the capabilities of, say, a carpenter that uses their practiced skills to build beautiful furniture or cabinets. I certainly admired my friend who hung that church door with such mastery, creating great beauty with amazing expertise.“
I love the idea of being a craftsman. When I was a young lad I was into woodworking. At one point I wanted to make it my career until some adult talked me out of it.
I wish I hadn’t listened. I was never a good student. I didn’t finish college. I got into computering instead. I shall adopt a new title.
