Naturally, programmers speak in code. You may hear them but that doesn’t mean you know what they said. I was a programmer long before I was a CEO. Then I was a manager of programmers. When I started Solutions, Inc. in 1969, I was all three since I was the only employee.
Computers have changed; programming languages have changed; but programmer-speak has remained remarkably constant. Programmers I managed at Microsoft and AT&T spoke the same language (whether they spoke English or not). ITXC programmers, as great as they were at their jobs, still spoke programmer-speak.
Very funny, very true.
