Now this was an uplifting read.

And I know that it is the popular thing to do, to hate on Ruby and Rails and that entire community, but seriously, what self-respecting person would want to identify themselves as a brogrammer? But, if I don’t consider myself a rock-star programmer, what then do I consider myself to be?

My first thoughts reading this post revolved around oh no, not another hare-brained “improvement” to something which doesn’t need changing. Then I thought some more, and saw how this could be useful. But then I had another thought.

Ordinary letters, you know, the pen and paper kind, has worked pretty well without being programmable, and I suppose that is because you probably tend to formulate these letters in a different way, thus circumventing the need to programmability. Just a thought…

The world needs more people like this.

The world needs less of this type of operations.
