Re^3: Worst blog post ever on teaching programming
in thread Problematic post on teaching programming
The quote I heard was:
In theory, theory is the same as practice. In practice, it's not.
attributed to Yogi Berra.
merlyn likes to give an alternative phrasing:
The difference between theory and practice in theory is much less
than the difference between theory and practice in practice.
— e.g. in this clpm post
Use two parentheses: (Like this: :) )
Use one parenthesis: (Like this: :)
Reverse direction of the smiley: (Like this: (: )
Use angle/square brackets instead of parentheses
Use C-style commenting to set the smiley off from the closing parenthesis
Make the smiley a dunce: (:>
I disapprove of emoticons
