+ - What happens to your brain when you're coding?

Submitted by youthoftoday
youthoftoday (975074) writes "Discussions with friends have shown that we all have slightly different mental approaches to coding. I personally find that often the code just appears under my fingers. Sometimes when trying to code something complex (usually with pointers) I have to actively stop thinking about the problem and some more abstract part of my brain over which I have no control writes the code for me. This seems to raise a few eyebrows.

So how do slashdot readers write code? Cold and logical? Subconscious and inexplicable? Is there some truth in http://xkcd.com/323 ?"

youthoftoday writes "I offer Slashdot the very warmest congratulations on reaching ten years. I and many thousands of others have enjoyed reading, discussing and contributing to the net's best news source. In that time certain themes have come and gone. But some remain, often unanswered.

In the spirit of celebration, I would like to ask Slashdot readers questions that are as pertinent as they ever have been: does it run Linux? and who will have the first post?."

IF I HAD A MINE SHAFT, I don't think I would just abandon it. There's got to be a better way. -- Jack Handley, The New Mexican, 1988.
