The Noble Art of Maintenance Programming

Yes, I am a big fan of code readability and refactoring. I always have in mind this:

Everyone knows that debugging is twice as hard as writing a program in the first place. So if you’re as clever as you can be when you write it, how will you ever debug it? – Brian Kernighan

Refactoring is a big challenge, you must be twice smarter of the developer who debugged is code (and the challenge of rewriting other people’s code makes it fun as hell).

Looking for new challenge – Day #7

Replied to more than 20 job offers.
No replies.
Too much experience?

If found this article really interesting about the relocation: Relocation? No way! But please, keep requiring it by @alobbs

Consider this, here in Italy the job offers are for something absolutely not interesting (in some case really boring) and / or not honestly payed so, it’s mandatory to find outside Italy. Not a problem, there are a million of job offers, but what if somebody can’t relocate easily? (or can’t relocate at all?) I don’t want to settle and be unhappy for my entire life. I want to do something really interesting and exiting!

Yeah, it happens… every single day of my life….
