Bloomberg Businessweek recently released The Code Issue, a special double issue containing a single essay by writer and programmer Paul Ford. It’s a great insight into the daily lives of programmers. A bit technical in some parts, but I think the vast majority of people will understand most of the article. It’s long but well worth the read.

A really valuable insight for my friends and family who wonder what it is that I actually do. Minus the part where the author sort-of dissed WordPress 😉 — though that’s certainly a view of the programmer community as large and something we’re working on changing.

Pick up the actual magazine as I did (to read on the plane), or read it online here:
