André Staltz wrote an article making the rounds, entitled The single tip that made me a better programmer:
As a programmer, you must become one with the machine, thinking how the machine thinks, to a level that you will no longer be surprised by any behavior or corner case. There should be no dissonance between your mind and the computer’s activities. To become fully conscious of the runtime realm in the computer is, basically, programming utopia.
This is a good article, and has merit. But I don’t agree with it.
