Reminder, it’s Tuesday and that means only one thing. Take a programmer to lunch. Give your friend the programmer a hug, a meal, some fresh air, and listen. Ask how it’s going. What do you think of this or that. How could it all work better. Listen. There’s a mind in there. Don’t be afraid. Programmers can be friendly if you just give them a chance.
BTW, all programmers want to tell you How It Works. In excruciating detail. As if you cared. Try to be patient.
