French Fridays for Developers - Week 11

'White text on black background on top of a French Flag. Text says French for Devs! Funny and/or useful French quotes for developers. A New French for Devs Quote Every Friday!'

In March, 2023 started French for Devs Fridays to celebrate getting to 400 days on Duolingo. Here you'll find weekly useful and/or amusing French phrases for developers. This one's for all those new devs learning to code for the first time, current devs diving into a completely new language far removed from your usual stack, or anyone who's tried to explain code to non-programmers and gotten "that look".

Today is my:

  • 🇫🇷 507 day of French,
  • 🇳🇱 167th day of Dutch,
  • 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 **6th day of Welsh,
    • (I got curious and started another language this week!) and
  • 👋 42nd Day of ASL (American Sign Language)

Here's this week's French for Devs quote and translation. I was reading Apple news and came across a brilliantly worded article by Tristian Cross of The Guardian. A link to his article is below.

Comment les non-programmeurs voient le code :
« Le code peut sembler alarmant pour les non-initiés : des «langues» impénétrables qui se lisent principalement comme une calculatrice ayant un accident vasculaire cérébral. »

How non-programmers see code: "Code can appear alarming to the uninitiated: inscrutable “languages” that mostly read like a calculator having a stroke”
