Even though you’ve chosen the software developer profession, you need to interact with people. Yes, it’s fucking hard and you don’t want to.
If you don’t refactor your code multiple times a day, you’re either a fucking genius or a fucking idiot. The latter is more likely.
If you can’t get your fucking test to pass, maybe you are fucking around with the wrong test? #tdd (Inspired by http://bit.ly/bOv2kCa/a>)
Start working on code katas instead of gaming on your fucking PS3 to improve your lacking skills – http://osherove.com/tdd-kata-1/
If you’ve never done it, start to write a fucking compiler. The basics are way easier than you think. Start here – http://bit.ly/adqQeu
More often than not, it’s your fucking fault, not your compiler’s.
It’s not the programming language which is determining the crappiness of your code, it’s your apparent lack of skills.
TDD is no replacement for putting your fucking brain to work.
You can do without TDD. You can go faster without TDD. You’re a fucking genius. I can use any help I can get to write better software.
It’s easy to write crappy code in every fucking language.
