The efficiency that a programmer demonstrates in their code could be misconstrued in the real world as laziness.
As a programmer one of the things that we try to do is solve problems or perform a task in the most efficient way possible. In computing terms efficiency generally bogs down to doing it in less code or doing it with less CPU cycles.
Knowing how programmer efficiency could be perceived by other people I tend not to point out the basic though process I go through whenever my wife asks me to do something. It’s best if that never gets declared globaly lol.
“What’s the quickest way possible to get this done?”, “Do I need to do all of these steps or are some unnecessary?” or
It’s not lazyness it’s efficiency… at least that’s what I tell myself in my head.
