Aleran Software quotes by Philip Greenspun
#1. Frame is a good enough piece of software that there are actually rewards to taking an intelligent and formal approach to your problem. But if you want to be stupid, you can think of Frame as a version of Microsoft Word with most of the bugs taken out. #Quote by Philip Greenspun
Aleran Software quotes by Joseph Weizenbaum
#2. The computer programmer is a creator of universes for which he alone is the lawgiver. No playwright, no stage director, no emperor, however powerful, has ever exercised such absolute authority to arrange a stage or field of battle and to command such unswervingly dutiful actors or troops. #Quote by Joseph Weizenbaum
Aleran Software quotes by Bret Weinstein
#3. Slavery has a special interaction with the normal structures of being a human being.

So a human being is sort of a generalist creature with a capacity to have its software re-worked for different habitats. The reason that human beings are able to exploit every terrestrial habitat where plants grow is that they don't all have the software program that's the same, right? You can have a software program for hunting in the Calihari, you can have one for terracing the Andes to grow potatoes, you can have any one of a number of software programs.

Well, slavery took the software program that Africans who were brought into the slave trade had, and it did its best to erase that program – and to render that program non-functional. It rendered it non-functional by combining people from different places who didn't even necessarily speak a language so there was not one culture available. And it sort of forces the bootstrapping of a new culture, which was composed of various things but of course it was, you know, prohibition against teaching slaves to read and things like that, and so there was a systematic breaking of the original culture that Africans had during the New World, and a substituting of a version that was not a much of a threat to the slave-holding population, right?

And at the point that slavery comes to an end, it is not as if, frankly, even, you know, we didn't even have the tools to talk about these things in responsible terms. There wasn' #Quote by Bret Weinstein
Aleran Software quotes by Erik Naggum
#4. Like many older fans of Free Software and Open Source, I have discovered that it is really only free in the sense that the time you spend on it is worthless. #Quote by Erik Naggum
Aleran Software quotes by Steve Ballmer
#5. From a client perspective, I really think the work Microsoft's doing with Surface, with HoloLens, with Xbox, that stuff's absolutely essential to the company's future. Because innovation in the future will either be from the cloud out to all devices, or from devices as supported by software in the cloud. I think it's important for Microsoft to participate both ways. #Quote by Steve Ballmer
Aleran Software quotes by Jez Humble
#6. If it hurts, do it more frequently, and bring the pain forward. #Quote by Jez Humble
Aleran Software quotes by Bob Frankston
#7. Patents? Disappointed? Don't think of it that way. Software patents weren't feasible then so we chose not to risk $10,000. #Quote by Bob Frankston
Aleran Software quotes by Steve McConnell
#8. The job of the average manager requires a shift in focus every few minutes. The job of the average software developer requires that the developer not shift focus more often than every few hours. #Quote by Steve McConnell
Aleran Software quotes by Friedrich L. Bauer
#9. Software Engineering is that part of Computer Science which is too difficult for the Computer Scientist. #Quote by Friedrich L. Bauer
Aleran Software quotes by Kim Stanley Robinson
#10. A major part of sustainability is social justice, here and everywhere. Think of it this way: justice is a technology. It's like a software program that we use to cope with the world and get along with each other, and one of the most effective we have ever invented, because we are all in this together. When you realize that acting with justice and generosity turns out to be the most effective technology for dealing with other people, that's a good thing. #Quote by Kim Stanley Robinson
Aleran Software quotes by Rebecca MacKinnon
#11. While sanctions against Iran and Syria are intended to constrain those countries' governments, they have had the unfortunate side effect of constraining activists' access to free online software and services used widely across the Middle East, including browsers, online chat applications, and online storage services. #Quote by Rebecca MacKinnon
Aleran Software quotes by Bill Gates
#12. Whether it's Google or Apple or free software, we've got some fantastic competitors and it keeps us on our toes. #Quote by Bill Gates
Aleran Software quotes by Kent Beck
#13. Optimism is an occupational hazard of programming; feedback is the treatment. #Quote by Kent Beck
Aleran Software quotes by Erik Brynjolfsson
#14. There are lots of examples of routine, middle-skilled jobs that involve relatively structured tasks, and those are the jobs that are being eliminated the fastest. Those kinds of jobs are easier for our friends in the artificial intelligence community to design robots to handle them. They could be software robots; they could be physical robots. #Quote by Erik Brynjolfsson
Aleran Software quotes by Amie Kaufman
#15. If you can't reprogram the software, reprogram the hardware, right? #Quote by Amie Kaufman
Aleran Software quotes by Anonymous
#16. Graphics experts led by computer scientists at Harvard have created an add-on software tool that translates video game characters - or any other three-dimensional animations - into fully articulated action figures, with the help of a 3D printer. #Quote by Anonymous
Aleran Software quotes by Henrik Kniberg
#17. Summary of Scrum vs Kanban

- Both are Lean and Agile
- Both use pull scheduling
- Both limit WIP
- Both use transperency to drive process improvement
- Both focus on delivering releasable software and often
- Both are based on self-organizing teams
- Both require breaking the work into pieces.
- In both, the release plan is continuously optimized based on empirical data (velocity/lead time) #Quote by Henrik Kniberg
Aleran Software quotes by Masha Gessen
#18. The Agat Institute was a God- and state-forsaken outfit inhabited by dead souls and a few disoriented live ones like Yekaterina, who was put to work developing software for the weapons-control system of a nuclear submarine. #Quote by Masha Gessen
Aleran Software quotes by Jason Farman
#19. Similarly, the computers used to run the software on the ground for the mission were borrowed from a previous mission. These machines were so out of date that Bowman had to shop on eBay to find replacement parts to get the machines working. As systems have gone obsolete, JPL no longer uses the software, but Bowman told me that the people on her team continue to use software built by JPL in the 1990s, because they are familiar with it. She said, "Instead of upgrading to the next thing we decided that it was working just fine for us and we would stay on the platform." They have developed so much over such a long period of time with the old software that they don't want to switch to a newer system. They must adapt to using these outdated systems for the latest scientific work.
Working within these constraints may seem limiting. However, building tools with specific constraints - from outdated technologies and low bitrate radio antennas - can enlighten us. For example, as scientists started to explore what they could learn from the wait times while communicating with deep space probes, they discovered that the time lag was extraordinarily useful information. Wait times, they realized, constitute an essential component for locating a probe in space, calculating its trajectory, and accurately locating a target like Pluto in space. There is no GPS for spacecraft (they aren't on the globe, after all), so scientists had to find a way to locate the spacecraft in the vast expanse. #Quote by Jason Farman
Aleran Software quotes by Richard Stallman
#20. Today many people are switching to free software for purely practical reasons. That is good, as far as it goes, but that isn't all we need to do! Attracting users to free software is not the whole job, just the first step. #Quote by Richard Stallman
Aleran Software quotes by Alberto Savinio
#21. When applied to software, Sturgeon's Law is hopelessly optimistic. #Quote by Alberto Savinio
Aleran Software quotes by Eric Schmidt
#22. You should never be able to reverse engineer a company's organizational chart from the design of its product. Can you figure out who reigns supreme at Apple when you open the box for your new iPhone? Yes. It's you, the customer; not the head of software, manufacturing, retail, hardware, apps, or the Guy Who Signs the Checks. That is exactly as it should be. #Quote by Eric Schmidt
Aleran Software quotes by Sam Wyly
#23. Originally, I was in both software and in online computing. The first innovation really was sort of at that time that we're marrying the telephone and the computer so that people wouldn't have to drive to the computer center. We didn't have $1,000 computers. #Quote by Sam Wyly
Aleran Software quotes by Anita Nair
#24. Could a literary life be referred to with the iambic pentameter of, say, harnessing wind power, transplanting hearts or saving the whales. Or did it necessitate the sombre and monotonous dirge of software, priority banking or turbine building. #Quote by Anita Nair
Aleran Software quotes by Daniel Pinchbeck
#25. From a shamanic perspective, the psychic blockade that prevents otherwise intelligent adults from considering the future of our world - our obvious lack of future, if we continue on our present path - reveals an occult dimension. It is like a programming error written into the software designed for the modern mind, which has endless energy to spend on the trivial and treacly, sports statistic or shoe sale, but no time to spare for the torments of the Third World, for the mass extinction of species to perpetuate a way of life without a future, for the imminent exhaustion of fossil fuel reserves, or for the fine print of the Patriot Act. This psychic blockade is reinforced by a vast propaganda machine spewing out crude as well as sophisticated distractions, encouraging individuals to see themselves as alienated spectators of their culture, rather than active participants in a planetary ecology. #Quote by Daniel Pinchbeck
Aleran Software quotes by Yegor Bugayenko
#26. Quality must be enforced, otherwise it won't happen. We programmers must be required to write tests, otherwise we won't do it. #Quote by Yegor Bugayenko
Aleran Software quotes by Charles Stross
#27. This document describes progress to date in establishing a defensive network capable of repelling wide-scale incursions by reconfiguring the national closed-circuit television surveillance network as a software-controlled look-to-kill multiheaded basilisk. To #Quote by Charles Stross
Aleran Software quotes by Eben Hewitt
#28. In 1966, Derrida delivered a paper entitled "Structure Sign and Play in the Discourse of the Human Sciences" (which is a wonderful paper, right up there with the original DynamoDB paper and the Page Rank algorithm paper). #Quote by Eben Hewitt
Aleran Software quotes by Jane Jensen
#29. Before I became a game designer, I was a software engineer. #Quote by Jane Jensen
Aleran Software quotes by Frederick P. Brooks Jr.
#30. Adding manpower to a late software project, makes it later. #Quote by Frederick P. Brooks Jr.
Aleran Software quotes by Chad Fowler
#31. You could have chosen any number of career paths, but this one is
exciting. It's creative. It requires deep thinking and rewards you with
a sense of being able to do something that most of the people you meet
each day can't imagine being able to do. We may worry about progressing
to the next level, making an impact, or gaining respect from
our co-workers or our peers in the industry, but if you really stop to
think about it, we've got it really good.

Software development is both challenging and rewarding. It's creative
like an art-form, but (unlike art) it provides concrete,measurable value.

Software development is fun!

Ultimately, the most important thing I've learned over the journey that
my career in software development has been is that it's not what you
do for a living or what you have that's important. It's how you choose to
accept these things. It's internal. Satisfaction, like our career choices, is something that should be sought after and decided upon with intention. #Quote by Chad Fowler
Aleran Software quotes by Paul Gigot
#32. There are no barriers to entries. Think of this as Linux in terms of software. Anyone can have part of the operating system so long as you pledge allegiance to the ideas. Previously, if you wanted to join al Qaeda, you had to travel to an al Qaeda safe haven, probably in northern Pakistan or Afghanistan. Now all you have to do is get a gun, choose a target, and carry out an attack. #Quote by Paul Gigot
Aleran Software quotes by Michael Marshall Smith
#33. Scrivener is where I live. I'm planning the next novel, two screenplays and a couple of short stories with it and it's amazing how fluid the software makes the process. I genuinely think this is the biggest software advance for writers since the word processor. #Quote by Michael Marshall Smith
Aleran Software quotes by Bruce Tognazzini
#34. It's hard to read through a book on the principles of magic without glancing at the cover periodically to make sure it isn't a book on software design. #Quote by Bruce Tognazzini
Aleran Software quotes by Bill Gates
#35. People can criticize Microsoft for supporting this TV thing for the past eight years, but it is a long-term bet, There is not any other software business that is as dedicated to the vision of the TV and the PDA [personal digital assistant] as we are. #Quote by Bill Gates
Aleran Software quotes by Theo De Raadt
#36. I actually am fairly uncomfortable about it, even if our firm stipulation was that they cannot tell us what to do. We are simply doing what we do anyways - securing software - and they have no say in the matter. I try to convince myself that our grant means a half of a cruise missile doesn't get built. #Quote by Theo De Raadt
Aleran Software quotes by Bjarne Stroustrup
#37. Design and programming are human activities; forget that and all is lost. #Quote by Bjarne Stroustrup
Aleran Software quotes by Steve Ballmer
#38. When you take a look at the transition from server software to Azure, what's going on in terms of cloud infrastructure, the company is absolutely the No. 1 company serving enterprise backbone needs, which is fantastic. It's making the migration to cloud. We started a good thing with Azure, and the company has made well more than two years of progress in terms of being able to compete with the right cost profile, margin structure, and innovation versus Amazon. #Quote by Steve Ballmer
Aleran Software quotes by Mark McKay
#39. went straight back to lock mode. Some progress on next of kin at least, he thought. He'd still need to get at Simon's contact list though, so the next port of call was the IT department. They would have the software required to run a password crack on the mobile and they should also now have the CCTV footage of Nero's, circa 8.30 this morning. He was more than a little curious about the choice of venue for the killing. Anyone who thought they could cold-bloodedly commit a murder in the open spaces of the City of London without the event being caught on camera was either incredibly stupid, or just didn't care. Time to find out which it was. IT was located in the basement. #Quote by Mark McKay
Aleran Software quotes by Richard Stallman
#40. I decided not to have children. (...) I am convinced I made a wise personal decision in avoiding this. But I was not the only one that benefited from it. Everyone did. Not having children is an important contribution to humanity. My decision probably reduced the 2050 population by 5 to 10 people. (...) My decision was a contribution, and enabled me to make another contribution: to launch GNU and the free software movement. Having no dependents, I could dedicate myself to what seemed right rather than to whatever someone with money told me to do. If you are reading this page, it is because that decision enabled me to make contributions to humanity that people appreciate. #Quote by Richard Stallman
Aleran Software quotes by Anonymous
#41. Software development governance versus software project governance. Interest in project governance predates research in software development governance. There is substantial overlap between software project governance and software development governance as much software development in software organizations is done via software projects. #Quote by Anonymous
