A Prayer for Programmers

Posted: July 20, 2012 in Uncategorized

The Compiler’s Type Checker is my Shepherd;

I shall not want.
It maketh me think to do the right thing:
It leadeth me with many error messages.
It restoreth my software’s logic:
It leadeth me in the paths of software correctness for Quality’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of refactoring,
I will fear no bugs: For I have typed my variables;
Thy type declaration and thy cast, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table of types in the presence of typeless babble;
Thou annointest my variables with types; My bugs runneth away.

Surely correctness and accuracy shall follow my software throughout its days,
and I will dwell in the House of Uber Developers forever.
