Raising The Drunken Rant Bar

28 Mar 2006

For the last week or so, I've been dipping into Stevey's Drunken Blog Rants, a disorganised collection of essays written by Steve Yegge, a software engineer at Amazon and now Google. He has lots to say on various aspects of programming, ranging from interviewing to Emacs to lanugauges to continued learning. All good stuff, and he even references Cthulhu and Amber.

(Actually, I'm slightly miffed that he's beaten me to the Amber/Lisp simile that's been rolling around in my brain for a while now. Ah well, it's sufficiently obvious that I'd be a little surprised if it hadn't turned up somewhere before...)
