Programming is like a Dream… by Lisa

This post is different from my other previous posts as it does not talks about SQL or anything near to it. But it talks about the Progmmers who code not only in SQL but other programming languages too.

I stumbled into Lisa’s post which talks about Programming as a Dream. I liked this article very much and the illustration given by her really fits in each and every scenario in one’s day today life and specially in dreams.

An excerpt from her post:

“If you think about programming like dreaming, you’ll realize that programmers remember more if you interrupt them gently than if you barrage them. If someone wakes you out of bed and starts shouting a long list of things at you to remember, you’ll almost certainly forget what you were dreaming. However, if someone shakes you gently and gives you a few seconds to open your eyes and look around before they start talking, it’s a lot easier to remember the dream for later. The same works for programmers. If you just walk into their office and start talking, one of two things will happen: they’ll completely forget what they were coding, or they won’t really be paying attention to you. However, if you quietly walk up to them and let them know you are there but say nothing until they are ready, the programmer can come to the end of the thought they are on. Once they’ve finished their thought, it will be easier for them to pick up next time and still pay attention to what you have to say.”
