The Pitfall

You know how when we started programming, we used to blame the hardware, the compiler, and all the low-level details for our shortcomings? Well, we hopefully don’t do that no more.

Then, we started using libraries and frameworks, and starting blaming those for our shortcomings. Hopefully, we don’t do that no more, either (I still fall into that occasionally, though).

I am now guilty of blaming other collaborators in our project for my own shortcomings. I did it so willingly and openly, and I feel ashamed. To brush that away, I came to make a confession and make sure that I move away from that, as well.

If you have no idea what the hell I am talking about, well, all I am saying is that you are your worst enemy.

(This is just a cryptic message that I will leave for my future self: If something doesn’t make sense, it doesn’t mean it’s useless. It may be a design flaw.)
