It’s People! Code is Made Out of People!

By Dom Davis

It doesn’t matter what language you use, what platform you code on, or what editor you prefer; there’s one underlying thread common to all code: people. It’s also the hardest part of coding. Unless you’re a team of one, writing code only you are going to use, people are always going to enter into the equation. So lets bypass the fancy algorithms, forget about the methodologies, and look at how we deal with the people aspect of code. The people we work with. The people we’re coding for. The people who were here before us. And the people that will come after us. And maybe, just maybe, we’ll come out of it better developers.
