When we all are talking about c, c++, Java, Python, etc. there are some languages that are not only difficult but are almost incomprehensible for most software developers.
These languages are called esoteric programming language (or esolang).
An esolang is not designed for commonplace software development purposes. They are intended as a proof of concept or as a joke.
Here is a list of the five most difficult esoteric languages. I tried executing the ‘Hello World!’ program in each of these languages, and it is fun.
Malbolge was invented in 1998 by Ben Olmstead. …
I always feel that the software profession offers one of the most promising careers out there. It is both challenging and rewarding at the same time. With every passing year, more and more software engineers are joining the force.
Every software engineer wants to make it big in their careers. It is given that most of them are technically good and proficient in one or more programming languages. And many feel technical knowledge is all that they need to thrive.
However, only a few of these passionate software developers can grow exponentially in their careers. They can achieve the goals…
Software engineers work hard throughout their careers to produce excellent tools. They dedicate their life to programming to build software that helps humanity immensely.
While the software developers are saving the world with their software, they do not forget to have fun during the process. There are many incredibly hilarious insider jokes among the programming community that can make you go belly up laughing hard.
Here are a few of the selected jokes to tickle your funny bone.
In a software engineering career, we often get to work with people who have terrible attitudes. Some of these people are really smart and talented, and others are just incompetent jerks. In either case, it is not pleasant to work with people having terrible attitudes.
Working with jerks carries the risk of constant conflicts to your everyday workplace. Such people produce unnecessary friction when they interact with others. When the behavior continues for a long time, it has the potential to impact your and the team’s performance.
However, there will be hardly any software development team where you do not…
Programming skills develop over time. These skills help the programmers to write better code and produce reliable software that meets end-users requirements.
Every software developer needs to go through practical hands-on experience to be good at their trade. They have to execute multiple real-life projects to understand the nitty-gritty of good coding practices.
There is no book or training material that you can read through and gain all those experiences without going through the grind of real project execution. However, you can learn what to focus on during your software development journey to be good at coding.
Knowing the secrets…
Every software developer wants to be great at their job. They want to design and implement fantastic software. They focus a lot on acquiring the technical skills required to achieve the dream of making it big in the software industry.
However, we see only a few developers learn from their experience and grow to be great software engineers. Why is this disparity between ambition and reality? Why cannot everyone who knows how to code elegantly become great engineers and achieve their goals?
Because it is not just about coding faster and better; it is also not about astounding technical skills…
Software engineering is one of the most promising professions. Many engineers give it all to thrive in this exciting career. People who perform the best also derive the most benefit out of it. They are the good developers I am talking about here.
Good developers get to work on challenging projects and get paid handsomely for their effort. However, best-performing engineers invite certain unique troubles for themselves due to their performance and ability.
These troubles initially help the developers learn faster than others. But with time, they become the reason for burnout. When the interruption and work overload continues, good…
The never-give-up attitude of programmers makes them create incredible software. Let’s take a peek into the life of these brave software developers— who not only take their work seriously but also know how to have fun and enjoy life in their unique ways.

I want to succeed but I want everyone else to succeed as well. Just the same way I’ve always tried to conduct myself in whatever in life I’ve been involved in. Just seems like practical common sense to me, not magic. — Terry Mansfield
Recently I came across an article about reciprocity from Terry Mansfield. It is an excellent piece on how mutuality helps start a virtuous chain reaction in which both parties involved reap great benefits.
While reading the article, I could not help but affirm that reciprocity has played a significant role throughout my professional life.
Programming is a must-have skill to be a software engineer. Hence, every software developer knows how to code. Given that, how can you excel as a software engineer among millions of others in the software industry?
If you cannot stand out among your peers, then you have little chance of building a stellar career in the software profession.
Software engineer’s career progression depends on the quality of their delivery. Every developer can code, but not every one of them can write quality code. Excellent software engineers need to know how to deliver quality code every time a task is assigned.
