I was thinking the other day about how coding could potentially be an art. I think art is anything that sparks the imagination in someone. If coding is an art, then there’s a lot of unknown artists around that people don’t know about.
Coding (or for the more sophisticated, Programming) is an art because a project starts with one idea, that expands into a function, a class, a module, or even a user interface. While it may seem small, we all know it’s the little things in life that count; such as where that button goes on a program, or where that setting is found.
Often some higher-level programmers (programming lower-level code) believe that HTML coders are of a lower cast in their own clique simply because HTML is for n00bs. Is it really? I mean, if you take any well-versed HTML programmer and stick them in front of Boxely — are they still just a Web programmer? I’ll leave that up to you; personally, I believe that even novice coders can still contribute as much talent and work as their seniors.
