Hustle & Flow
Last night we saw a great movie "Hustle & Flow", it had a great story and gripping acting. It's all about the life of a Memphis pimp who has a lot to say about his life and his struggle to contribute his verses.
The movie got me thinking about what kind of movie could be made about my life. I think it would make sense to show me as a gangsta programma trying to survive in this programming game. The gangsta programming life is full of danger from buggy code trying to crash on you, playa hating PMs trying to crack the whip on development cycles. sucka MC users trying to diss my UI.... Sometimes the world feels like it is crashing down around me but I keep trying to stay true to the game, writing my code like a true thug with no design docs, comments, and massively inlined functions.
Even when I spill coke on my keyboard I don't slow down one bit. I just pick myself up and say "Pedram, you have dealt with far tougher things than sticky keys!". I pour some water on that keyboard and continue kicking raw crump lines of code! I'm so hard that I have to wear a bullet-proof vest when I code. No amount of hating is going to keep my code down, I continue to open source my code with no hesitation!
