French Fridays for Developers - 016

'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. Last week I reached 600 days! Here you'll find weekly useful and/or amusing French phrases for developers.

Pair programming is on my mind after the wonderful Toronto JS tech talks evening at VMWare Tanzu Labslast night. Teams at Tanzu Labs do a lot of pair programming - and not just developers with developers, but devs with design, clients, ... . Looks like a very cool work culture!

Today is my:

  • 🇫🇷 608th day of French,
  • 🇳🇱 267th day of Dutch,
  • 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 106th day of Welsh,
  • 🇩🇪 28th day of German,
  • 🇳🇴 22nd day of Norwegian,

Here's this week's French for Devs quote and translation.

Week 16, 29 septembre 2023

«La période d’adaptation de la programmation solo à la programmation collaborative a été comme manger un piment. La première fois que vous l’essayerez, vous ne l’aimerez peut-être pas parce que vous n’y êtes pas habitué. Mais plus vous en mangez, plus vous l’appréciez.»

English: French for Devs #016, September 29, 2023

"The adjustment period from solo programming to collaborative programming was like eating a hot pepper. The first time you try it, you may not like it because you are not used to it. However the more you eat it, the more you like it.”
