Programming is boring art

Wow, there is a lot to unpack here. Boring? Art?

I said it’s boring because you keep writing code that looks like blocks and blocks of text having the same shape. Assignments, conditionals, loops, functions, etc. I can pull out the best, the most intelligent code on this planet and put that side by side with another dumb piece of code that someone just wrote for fun. And they look the same from afar.
