[Rant] Really annoying posts

I use this for more complex tasks. I think the reason for this is that there are different modes of thought when developing software. One mode is deciding what you want your app to look and feel like to the end user. Another is determining the steps necessary to accomplish the task in the environment you are using, usually called pseudo-coding. The mode we call Programming is actually just one of the modes, one of the last modes of thought, which focuses on the exact syntax to accomplish each task.

Livecode at least in theory allows us to hop around these modes of thought like stones in a stream, but the reality of the human psyche doesn’t lend itself to this very well. So the time tested method of software development, the planning, the flow diagrams, the pseudo-coding and the programming are after all, the only way to produce any kind of complex system of code. This fact does not deter me in the least from taking the lazy man’s approach, and just jump in and start coding. It’s fun! ;-)
