Program intelligently;

I wholeheartedly agree.

Unfortunately there is a large and apparently growing section of the (IT) community that seem to want be able to program by rote; to mechanically follow a recipe, a set of rules followed verbatim: stand up and say "Yay!" for 5 minutes; sit down and write 10 minutes of non-production code; swap seats and write 5 minutes of production code; 20 minutes of watching "XYZ passed" scroll up the screen. Rinse and repeat until the end of the day.

New day, 5 minutes standing. "What did you do yesterday?". "I wrote 13 new tests". {collective} "Yay!".


With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority". I knew I was on the right track :)
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice. Not understood.
