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.
If you know a little about quantum mechanics, or computer science, then the idea that there is anything about it that can be tested using the familiar zip compression algorithm will seem as strange as [ ... ]
