Quotes on software from Wikiquote!

  • Around computers it is difficult to find the correct unit of time to measure progress. Some cathedrals took a century to complete. Can you imagine the grandeur and scope of a program that would take as long?
    • “Epigrams in Programming”, SIGPLAN, Association for Computing Machinery, September 1982
  • A refund for defective software might be nice, except it would bankrupt the entire software industry in the first year.
  • Interviewer: Is studying computer science the best way to prepare to be a programmer? Bill Gates: No. the best way to prepare is to write programs, and to study great programs that other people have written. In my case, I went to the garbage cans at the Computer Science Center and I fished out listings of their operating system. You got to be willing to read other people’s code, then write your own, then have other people review your code. You’ve got to want to be in this incredible feedback loop where you get the world-class people to tell you what you’re doing wrong.
    • “Programmers at Work: Interviews With 19 Programmers Who Shaped the Computer Industry”, Tempus, by Susan Lammers (Editor)
