One thing that I’ve come to notice of late is that I’m a little different to a lot of developers that I meet. Many developers, seem to have a penchant for wanting to write code for the sake of writing code. To optimise, to agonise over, and ultimately to perfect the very specific piece of code that they’re working on, regardless of the bigger picture of the project.
After reading the recent reporting on the SQLite code of conduct I thought it might be fun to take a punt at a code of conduct based around the “Don’t be a Dick” philosophy. Should be fun!
I’ve finally gone and done it, that unconscionable, ruthless and nonsensical act tantamount to modern social suicide. I’ve deleted my Facebook account. And I do feel rather vitriolic about it :D.
