O Nobly Born

I dedicate this entry to my nephew who started working as a software engineer and to the newbies of the ITC industry whoever you are and where ever you are.

O the Nobly Born, do know that the Way to Algorithm and System Programming is long, and winding, and Fraught with Hardship. Thou must Attune thyself with the Operating System then dive into the Kernel Shell, attaining the arcane Knowledge and Communication of the Network. Yea, and such an all-consuming Time and Energy Sink is this as to greatly Imperil (if one thou hast). But persevere, o young earthlings; rewards beyond the Dreams of Lusers await thee!

Thou shall Walk in a Pride of a Camel. The Virtue of Determination is the Path to be Wiser.

O the Nobly Born, know that Being Oneself by your own thinking styles are but the outermost Portal of the True Enlightenment. Worthy are they (and praise to the Name of Linus Torvold, who dared to be different and set free the Open Source), but being unique and dare to be different are only the Beginning of the Road. Swim and keep on swimming freely into the oceans and Speak with the Mantra of C-Language and thou shall find there is no wall too high nor there is no shield too strong then all ports are reachable. If thou desirest with True Desire to tread the Path of Development Wisdom, first learn the elementary, then, absorb the mantic professionalism.

Thou shall Swim in a Pride of a Dolphin. The Virtue of Curiosity is the Path to be Knowledgeable.

O the Nobly Born, indeed thou hast touched upon an Ineffable Truth about being unique --- that thou canst not Plumb its Mysteries by mere Study but must become One with it through Practice. The true Way to the Knowledge of the Industry is not the timid and footling way of the Student, but the Divine Foolery of the Developer. Strive against Mighty Problems, have joy in thy Striving, and let the Crashes fall where they may. Do your art, programming and calculate again; grow, by trial and by error. Give thy best and gain in Repute thereby. Also, O the Nobly Born, be thou grave and courteous in thy speech; be helpful to those less than thee, quick to succour and slow to flame.

Thou shall Work in a Pride of an Ant. The Virtue of Application is the Path to be Comprehensible.

By degrees imperceptible to thyself shalt thou gain Power and Wisdom, Striving and Doing all the while. Gradually shall thy Puissance unfold and deepen. Never forget the Elementary through the Wise of a Pencil and the Power of a Paper. View O the Nobly Born for the overall system into sub-systems then establish a strong foundation of the Database, the Logicbase, the Functionbase, and the Linkbase. Understand the Flow, thou shall avoid the Overflow.

Thou shall Fly in a Pride of an Eagle. The Virtue of Observation is the Path to be Logical.

O the Nobly Born, if thou dost all these things, thy Algorithmhood and Hackerhood shall surely come upon thee; but not of a sudden, and not until after thy arrogant Mind hath more than half Forgotten that such was its Aim. For know this --- you may not by thyself in Pride claim the Mantle of the Industry; that way lies only Bogosity without End. Rather must you Become, and Become, and Become, until you respect thy Power, and other System Developers hail thee as a Brother or Sister in Wisdom, and you wake up and realize that the Mantle hath lain unknown upon thy Shoulders since you knew not when.

Thou shall Grow in a Pride of a Child. The Virtue of Respect is the Path to have Wisdom.

Behold The Information Technology and Communication Warriors!
