A random quote I think the coders in the audience will appreciate:

"Coding is like kicking a problem in the nuts. Some problems get kicked in the nuts by OOP, some don't. People that don't understand deserve a slow and painful death by enucleation with a plastic spoon."

P(A|B) = P(B|A)*P(A)/P(B)

By the power of Bayes!

Says the coder who prefers Python :P

Oh, wait, I fit that description too. Maybe that's why I like that quote. Be functional when it makes sense to be functional and use OOP when it makes sense to use OOP. I find that kind of thinking fits a lot more than just programming.

The 6 Stages of Debugging:
  • That can't happen.
  • That shouldn't happen.
  • Hmmm, weird.
  • Why does that happen?
  • Oh, I see.
  • How did that ever work?

Definitely been there, done that.

The method of debugging which never ceases to amaze me is "debugging by confession." I can't count how many times I've figured out a solution simply by describing the problem to someone else. Even when the listener does nothing but nod distractedly...

Lol @ "debugging by confession".  That's the best name for it I've ever heard.

It may be a measure of how long I've been puttering with this stuff that I tend to jump to #4 with perhaps only fleeting consideration put towards 1-3.  I see the bug, sigh, and jump to step 4.
