The lyf so short, the craft so long to lerne.

As a software developer, I’ve reached a certain point in my career where I think I can add real contributions to the community. Every now and then, I write a piece of code of which I think: “Why can’t I find an existing implementation of this?”. Realizing how I relied on insights and implementations of others over the past few years, and will continue to, I decided to start this blog about programming and software design.

Ever since I read the book on design patterns by Head First, I’ve been addicted to following good software design. My personal experience is people sometimes talk more about the subject than putting it into practice.

Not coming up with a proper title for this first post, I decided to make it a quotation (I know it’s cliché…) which pretty much sums up how I feel about programming.
