      Excellent!! So much written about S/W Engineers, Code, Programs.

      Basic- HARDWARE SOFTWARE OPERATING SYSTEM USER

      What made programming so difficult was that it required you to think like a computer.

      Fact that the programmer didn’t work on a problem directly, but rather spent their days writing out instructions for a machine.

      People are playing computer inside their heads.” Programmers were like chess players trying to play with a blindfold on—so much of their mental energy is spent just trying to picture where the pieces are that there’s hardly any leftover to think about the game itself.
