Computer Programming as an Art

I highly recommend anyone interested in programming as an art form read Donald Knuth‘s article entitled “Computer Programming as an Art” where Knuth explains the view excellently.  I’ve just read it and it’s definitely inspirational in terms of taking pride in one’s code and systems development.

Programming can, and most definitely should be, viewed as a creative outlet for expressing beauty through elegance and simplicity.
