Developers, you are doing animals wrong!

Ostriches: the peak of optimization. The way digestion was crammed in should go down in the annals of programming. In order for them to digest their food, the developer forced them to naturally eat stones. They then run around, jiggling the stones against each other to pulverize the food in their stomach.

Four good intentions paving the road to programming hell

Optimize your code. Create programming abstractions. Write cross-platform apps. It’s almost as if programmers who follow those precepts are supposed to be guaranteed a first-class ticket to heaven for programmers. But what if that isn’t the case? What if those techniques fast-track you, not to heaven, but to hell itself?
