[cytat] Excellent mastery of his native tongue is my first selection criterion for a prospective programmer
Nieraz jest tak, że usłyszę jakiś ciekawy cytat, ale potem nie mogę go użyć, bo zapomniałem źródła. Więc od teraz będę w takich razach notował.
W "Why is software so expensive? An explanation to the hardware designer." Dijkstra pisze ( https://www.cs.utexas.edu/users/EWD/transcriptions/EWD06xx/EWD648.html ):
From experience I have learned that in that period of gestation, when a new jargon has to be created, an excellent mastery of their native tongue is an absolute requirement for all participants. A programmer that talks sloppily is just a disaster. Excellent mastery of his native tongue is my first selection criterion for a prospective programmer; good taste in mathematics is the second important criterion. (As luck will have it, they often go hand in hand.)
