programming is hard

Just going trough Robert L. Glass' "Frequently Forgotten Fundamental Facts about Software Engineering" list.

True, true...

The "Estimation" and "Requirements and design" parts almost made me weep like a child :)

Yeah, good programming is hard.

And what is good programming?

Maybe it is the point where the craft ends and the art begins. The point where you memorized all the moves and you yourself become the tool.

For me good programming is the kind of programming that gives me a sense of pride when looking back at after a while. A day,  a month, maybe a year or two. Either "this is really good" or "this is ok but now I'd do it better" will do.
