tiny code

I ran across the Tiny Code site recently, and was reminded of how many of us started programming on ancient machines that barely had enough horsepower to handle typing – yet we’d spend hours on end writing little games and whatnot that had to be small or they wouldn’t run.

I’d love to see a return to a minimalist approach to development – but I know it’s only a pipe dream.

So yes, like him I’m in that group that everybody else hates – the folks who get on first if we want 🙂
