I am a C programmer
Written by Mike James

So you aspire to the heights of becoming a C programmer. You want to speak the language of gods. Be careful what you wish for. This classic video from 2011 deserves to be much better known. 

C programmers are  a breed apart, thank goodness,  and this short video seems to illustrate this beyond a shadow of doubt.

After you have watched it, I guarantee that you will hear the line

"I am a C programmer"

repeat itself as the body of an infinite loop in your head as you program. 

My favorite lines:

"I am a C programmer. I do not program user interfaces unless they are console based. I read from stdin and a I write to stdout."

 

   

 

What is really scary about this video is that I know C programmers exactly like this. They don't seem any more reasonable in real life. But then they think I'm far too easy going and contaminated beyond hope by actually providing a UI of any sort.

So a challenge -

I am an X programmer, where X is a language of your choice.

To get us started I offer:

I am a Fortran programmer - text handling is what you do when you read a book.
