Confessions of a Terrible Programmer

Kickin the Darkness: Confessions of a Terrible Programmer
“I’m a terrible programmer. … I still put bugs in my code, use the wrong types for variables or subprogram arguments, forget to make the right library calls, mess up the expression in an if statement, and on and on and on now for 25 years. …The odd thing though about the programs I design and write is that once they’re delivered to the customer or as a baseline release they usually work like they’re supposed to, which would seem to be surprising given that such a terrible programmer wrote them.”  The author of this blog entry has some excellent suggestions on how to deliver good code when you don’t naturally write good code.
