Once upon a time I had this idea to make developer t-shirts with quotes on them. But not like the one that says "there are 10 types of people in the world. Those that understand binary and those that don't". Yuck. Not the snobby kind. My tshirts would be called "humble dev tees".

I hired someone on fiverr to make a tshirt design with one the below quotes and then got a sample tshirt printed (a nice fitted bella+canvas one). It came out alright, not as nice as I was imagining. I wore that one for a while. And that's how far I got with that idea.

Here are all the possible quote options I have collected so far:

“Turtles all the way down”

"Ambiguity breeds confusion”

"Complexity is where the bugs hide.”

“Keep calm and debug on”

“Sometimes the hardest part of programming is figuring out the easiest way to do it”

“Not all who wander are lost"

“Simple ain’t easy”

“Later is the enemy of Now”

“Good is the enemy of Great”

“On Programming: Don't live with broken windows"

"A good programmer is someone who looks both ways before crossing a one-way street"

“On Programming: First do it, then do it right, then do it better.”

Compound interest formula: A = P * (1 + r) ^ t

"Testing can show the presence of errors, but not their absence.”  On Software Testing

"If debugging is the process of removing software bugs, then programming must be the process of putting them in."

"Theory and practice sometimes clash. And when that happens, theory loses. Every single time.” - Linus torvalds on Theory

"Fools ignore complexity. Pragmatists suffer it. Some can avoid it. Geniuses remove it.” - On complexity

Programmer's prayer: pleaseworkpleaseworkpleaseworkpleasework

"Sometimes, the elegant implementation is just a function. Not a method. Not a class. Not a framework. Just a function."

"Optimism is an occupational hazard of programming; feedback is the treatment."

"In programming, the hard part isn't solving problems, but deciding what problems to solve."
