Bret Victor, immer lesenswert:

Alan Perlis wrote, “To understand a program, you must become both the machine and the program.” This view is a mistake, and it is this widespread and virulent mistake that keeps programming a difficult and obscure art. A person is not a machine, and should not be forced to think like one.

How do we get people to understand programming?

We change programming. We turn it into something that’s understandable by people.

In seinen Beispielen wirkt programmieren weniger abstrakt und willkürlich. Ich hätte mir damit damals bestimmt leichter getan.
