But, most important, remember to make it fun.
Pragmatic Programmers take responsibility for everything they do.
Pragmatic Programmers won’t sit idly by and watch their projects fall apart through neglect.
Pragmatic programming stems from a philosophy of pragmatic thinking.
Great software today is often preferable to the fantasy of perfect software tomorrow.
If you give your users something to play with early, their feedback will often lead you to a better eventual solution.
Don’t spoil a perfectly good program by overembellishment and overrefinement.
Move on, and let your code stand in its own right for a while. It may not be perfect.
Don’t worry: it could never be perfect.
The limits of language are the limits of one’s world.
The faintest ink is more powerful than the strongest memory.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
