I think this quote finally gets at what bugs me about so many FileMaker feature requests, those long lists of things that would somehow make one’s life as a developer easier:
Programmers are obsessed with ease rather than simplicity (thank you Rich Hickey for making this point); or, what the experience of programming is instead of what the resulting program is like. This leads to useless conversations about semicolons and whether we need a preprocessor that eliminates curly braces. We still talk about programming as if typing in the code was the hard part. It’s not – the hard part is maintaining the code.
From here; emphasis mine.
I think people keep asking for expensive features that will save them maybe 1 minute a day because they don’t focus on their real bottlenecks. 😉
Med vänlig hälsning
