A few programming quotes

Original list is here

1.     If debugging is the process of removing software bugs, then programming must be the process of putting them in. -  Edsger Dijkstra

2.     The first 90% of the code accounts for the first 90% of the development time. The remaining 10% of the code accounts for the other 90% of the development time.  – Tom Cargill

3.     Measuring programming progress by lines of code is like measuring aircraft building progress by weight. – Bill Gates

4.     “Always code as if the guy who ends up maintaining your code will be a violent psychopath who knows where you live.” – Martin Golding

5.     “The trouble with programmers is that you can never tell what a programmer is doing until it’s too late.” – Seymour Cray

6.     Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning. – Rick Cook

7.     “Sometimes it pays to stay in bed on Monday, rather than spending the rest of the week debugging Monday’s code.” – Christopher Thompson

8.     Walking on water and developing software from a specification are easy if both are frozen. – Edward V Berard

 Happy time :-)
