about writing here at least. In reality, it’s been a really busy summer. In between work, trips to the zoo, horse riding camps, volunteering some time at Code Review SE and (oh, yeah) getting ready for our wedding, I’ve not had much time to think about this blog. Which is okay, but I did promise myself I would write something at least once a month.
It’s important to me that I keep that promise to myself. Most Programmers think that their most important skill is the ability to write clear and concise code. I would challenge that. We should generalize that and work on being able to write clearly and concisely whether we’re writing in C#, VB, or English. If we can’t communicate with the business, we will not be effective programmers. If we can’t communicate with each other, we will not be effective programmers. If we can’t communicate with the non-programmers in our lives, we will not be effective human beings.
I know I’ve been absent for a while, but I kept my promise. I’ve accomplished a goal and I feel better for it.
Until next time, Semper Cogitet.
