Tomorrow, I get to give short toast to two students that I taught at Nashville Software School. The groom 🎩 was in cohort 12. The bride 👰 in cohort 13. It all began when cohort 12 was presenting their client side capstone projects to cohort 13 on their first day at the school.
The future bride saw her future groom presenting his project and thought to herself, "That's the best looking guy in that class."
Two years later, they are getting married at the exact spot he was standing during that presentation. I think it's extremely cool. I'm honored to be a small part of their day, because I still consider them friends, and apparently I had just enough good moments when I was teaching them that they want to hear me talk at them one more time. 😄😄😄
As software gets more and more integrated into our lives, the industrialization of its crafting process becomes inevitable. But the over-generalization of software engineering can be crushing the creative side of programming.
