Ten hilarious programmers facts that only programmers can understand

Do you ever wonder why programmers are nightgeeks?? Or in simple words why they stay awake all the night?? Its all about tranquility and concentration during the night. For innovative ideas to code more efficiently and with zeal the programmer needs a peaceful and serene environment. It is difficult to code with concentration when around with someone specially when someone is staring. The programmer do not want to be interrupted while coding.  And as night is the best time to code without any interruption because everyone keeps on sleeping. So it’s a great time to code and imagine when nobody can disturb.

Oh!!! now you want to check my mental status, don’t you??
No no , it’s not what you are assuming. It is about the programs. Programs are written in hierarchy with the parent(process) managing their child(thread).

“As you don’t care about computer world , we don’t care about real world”

Seriously please stop annoying us, just stop it. We don’t care , really we don’t care how proud you are by knowing about politics or economics  or other real world things. We love to live in virtual world or lets say computer world. We really don’t care if you are null in computer science or not impressed when we brag about about computers. Similarly we are not impressed when you brag about bloody politics etc.

And at last Fact#9

“Programming is not easy as it sounds”

Programming is much difficult than it sounds. Programming is not just about writing an even or odd number program, but in real world to build real-time applications and softwares. Sometimes when they say “we are programmers” people start speculating them to be a Game developer etc. Fuck you guys if you are one of them. Game developing is a team process not a joke . It sounds easy but it is very difficult to build even a simplest game.

  1. I’m a programmer just like you guys seem to be, though I’m 12 and still in junior school. And yes, I totally agree with #9 😀 Sometimes I tell my friends that I’ve been doing programming for over a year or 2 now, so they just think that I must be either bragging, or just really good at it. So they just reply with “Alright, make a game and show me tomorrow.” Although that is a bit inaccurate, since they don’t say “Show me tomorrow”, but hey, it’s probably what they’re thinking. But yes, they do want me to make a game and everything xD
