Code is (was) (always will be) a mistake


The hottest of takes. Which to be quite fair isn't that hot as I think most people will agree. Or at least the echo chamber I'm in will agree. Maybe.

Code was a mistake. Code is a mistake. The more lines we write, the bigger the mistake. We should strive to get to the point where we can simply think a thought and the application comes in existence fully formed, efficient and without bugs. Do you think god got stuck in the weeds trying to figure out what the best weight for an electron was or how to decide the speed of light? No. He simply said let there be light, there was light.

We are gods, why do we accept anything less?
