|We can't even answer the fundamental question whether programming is hard or not.
Take it from one who's still struggling to tie his laces (programmatically). Programming is hard! It's coding that's easy.
It's easy to write a bit of code that does a specific "thing" ... I do it all the time.
What I still am struggling to get right is to write that same bit of code so that it is:
1.) Usable in more than just the one situation it was coded for.
2.) Stable in an unstable world.
3.) Looks good (i.e. Others can understand it.)
4.) Doesn't get me a metaphorical clout accross the skull when another programmer sees it.
Maybe I've swopped the "correct" definitions of coding and programming around? :-)
