Code is poetry

code is poetry
WordPress, the blogging platform that I use for this site has this as the motto: “CODE IS POETRY”. I really like it, and in truth, the way they have written the software – its a real treat. It only confirms the saying – best things in life come free. The design is modular and pluggable, database is well design and one feels nice reading through the code. As a side-effect, its easy to understand and maintain. When I was planning to make the first modification/plugin – I had imagined it would be a tough task – but it turned out to be not very difficult.
Its another matter that my own modifications to the code have made it look more like prose, and less like poetry!
