What is the Future of Programming?
Bret Victor on the Future of Programming. Here is Victor’s Website with notes and sources.
“The most dangerous thought that you can have as a creative person, is to think that you know what you are doing. Because once you think you know what you’re doing, you stop looking around for other ways of doing things. And you stop being able to see other ways of doing things. You become blind… The first step is you have to say to yourself: I don’t know what I’m doing. We as a field don’t know what we’re doing. I think you have to say: We don’t know what programming is. We don’t know what computing is. We don’t even know what a computer is. And once you truly understand that, and truly believe that, then you’re free, and you can think anything.”
