Programming is the new salt mine. 50% of the code written these days will never be used. And of that 80% of that is written for mundane tasks like departmental processing, data analytics, ETL, JSON shipping, blah blah blah. And of the 10% of code that is fun? Is stuffed into those 1million mobile apps languishing in the app stores of the major mobile players. I hate computers. But yet — I have to pay the bills — so I code; it’s like digging salt.
