Nutso serious: Cooking or Building software?

Eternal question: cooking, or building software? Which analog suits better?

Pro “Cooking” software

  • it’s a recurring activity
  • essential for daily survival (just like coding)
  • side effects removal: just like ‘Preact’ (remove clutter)
  • bonzai! & zen and lean
  • lots of opinions around (kitchen / software developers)
  • no certificates needed!

Pro “Building” software like a house

  • basement of house equals the necessary dev tooling in software
  • you can use modules, just like in software dev
  • it’s a bigger project, you don’t build a house everyday, do you?!
  • more fancy way of thinking, appreciation to the trade
  • certifications are more mandatory in Construction industry than in kitchen (just like certificates start to play a role in Software)

Me: a code enthusiasta, technology optimist, but also a realist. In my blog something like 80% of the articles are technology related - mostly in English and Finnish. I like to envision and ponder about things, how life could be, what we are doing wrong today, and so on. "Invented" a facebook -like system in 2000, as a short product pamphlet. Haven't yet realized the 20+ ideas that might have become big things. Maybe learning this skill one of these days!
