I started learning Perl when I was 26. Perl was my first programming language. I like Perl a lot.

A Convergence

[ #1390 ]
I am thoroughly enjoying The Psychology of Computer Programming. It's amazing that principles written over 30 years ago can still be so relevant today. Weinberg's present-day comments about his original writing are giving me a new perspective on how the field of Computer Programming has evolved.

It is nice to put my psychological thinking cap on again too. It was a thrill to read Weinberg's discussion of the impact that "Studying with family therapists such as Viginia Satir" (p. 5iii) had on him. He also spoke of how Satir helped him understand how to teach programmers to cope with crisis situations. Wow, maybe my formal training will be of practical use to me someday!

But for now, I've got to keep working on catching my programming skills up with my psychological and therapeutic skills. Back to work...
