Trust in code

Thoughts on tech by Antje Kazimiers

Poetry, yay!

Some fascinating aspect of CS comes from the need to name new stuff. Languages, frameworks, concepts.

It striked me again when I first head about poetry. So funny to name a tool like this, very appealing. My new package manager in Arch Linux is called yay – same thing here.

Names often relate to something or someone. Python to Monty Python and Django to the guitarist Django Reinhard. I believe inventors and creators come up with names like these to show their appreciation and to create little worlds they enjoy being in.

If I were to name a language or a framework, what would be heroes I would refer to?
