In so far as virus-makers have any discernible motive, they presumably feel vaguely anarchistic. I appeal to them: do you really want to pave the way for a new fat-cat profession ['software-doctors']? If not, stop playing at silly memes, and put your modest programming talents to better use.
An apprentice carpenter may want only a hammer and saw, but a master craftsman employs many precision tools. Computer programming likewise requires sophisticated tools to cope with the complexity of real applications, and only practice with these tools will build skill in their use.
We only get to receive what we internally give to ourselves through the programming of our internal representations. - Dr. Jacinta Mpalyenkana, Ph.D, MBA
Your limitations are largely programming instilled by others that you choose to believe. - Gary Hopkins
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning. - Rick Cook
It is practically impossible to teach good programming style to students that have had prior exposure to BASIC; as potential programmers they are mentally mutilated beyond hope of regeneration. - E. W. Dijkstra
Measuring programming progress by lines of code is like measuring aircraft building progress by weight. - Bill Gates
Goto, n.: A programming tool that exists to allow structured programmers to complain about unstructured programmers.
If debugging is the art of removing bugs, then programming must be the art of inserting them. - Unknown
Programming your mind with positive thoughts each day will go a long way to keep you from allowing external criticism to detail your dreams. - Ken Poirot
An activity originally intended to be performed by low-status, clerical – and more often than not, female – computer programming was gradually and deliberately transformed into a high-status, scientific, and masculine discipline. - Nathan L. Ensmenger
Programming today is a race between software engineers stirring to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the universe is winning. - Unknown
Trying to become something in a world where everyone wants to become something is a thing that needs God's programming. - Michael Bassey Johnson
Kids who are good at traditional school—repeating rote concepts and facts on a test—can fall apart in a situation where that isn’t enough. Programming rewards the experimental, curious mind. - Ketil Moland Olsen
