Someone Else's Code

Real life coding is nothing like school coding. While the actual process of coding is the same (there really aren't too many different ways to type), the interactions are different. In school, you are pretty much forced to code solo. In real life, you need to work with others or face epic failure.

In real life, we generally don't deal with code that is completely our own. Often, the code is not particularly well documented; this is where education kicks in. Common sense is also required, as uncommented code cannot remain that way.

Now, with that said, it's still fun to do. Can be a little frustrating if the creator of the code did things in a not-so-straightforward manner, but still fun and quite satisfying when it works.

Why am I posting about coding? There's going to be a bit of it this year. Maybe not on this site, because color scheme changes don't need code updates, but for other sites I've been working on. I really want to nail down a new design for Images on Ice, for example.

Anyway, I'm rambling now.
