Human Behavior in Software Development

Professor Beekums

CodeSOD: List Incomprehension

The Daily WTF

Loads of languages, like Python, have some sort of "comprehension" as a form of syntactic sugar. Instead of doing something awkward like: my_list = [1, 2, 3, 4] res = [] for x in my_list: res.append(x*x) # res contains: [1, 4, 9, 16].

Used correctly, it's not just code golf, but it can make the intent and purpose of your code more clear.

What do sex, drugs, and turnover have in common?

Marcus Blankenship - Daily Writing

When my kids were in elementary school, I didn’t talk openly about sex or drugs. See, I was afraid if I talked about it, then they’d do it. So I just pretended that sex and drugs didn’t exist. Which taught my kids to pretend the same thing, at least in front of me.
