It’s a bit ironic that I spend so much time with JavaScript right now. My first programming gig was with JavaScript. It was the spring of 2000. I was placed by an agency at an office near Alewife. I walked to Central, took the T to Harvard, got off, bought the “Rhino” book at the Harvard Book Store, got back on, and read the book until Alewife. I walked into the office and started coding. The company published training materials. A colleague (worker?) in the office said about 11am, “Hey, you need to take your eyes off the screen every now and then!”.

It was a bit of a disaster but I delivered the software they needed. I even partook of a company-provided yoga class. I ran into the co-worker a few years hence, and he claimed they still used the software I developed!

Your code is not temporary. Tell me about it in the comments.
