XKCD – Making Progress: lots of problems

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/07/10

I started off with countless problems. But now I know, thanks to COUNT(), that I have “#REF! ERROR: Circular dependency detected” problems.

Source: [WayBackXKCD 1906: I started the day with lots of problems. But now, after hours and hours of work, I have lots of problems in a spreadsheet.

@ingorammer on Twitter [WayBack] a while back:

As true today as it was when the book was written. “The psychology of computer programming” by @JerryWeinberg, 1971:

Specifications evolve together with programs and programmers. Writing a programis a process of learning – both for the programmer and the person who commissions the program.
