I don't think i said it takes anything years to implement. Programming is basically telling a computer what to do in response to one or multiple humans inputs.kimothebeatmaker wrote: ↑13 Nov 2019Yeah, it is...but it also moots the argument that "coding is hard...thats why these things take years to implement"...there has to be other reasons rather than "coding it really hard"...which was the original question of the post. Can it really be THAT hard? If these smaller companies are doing it? I feel like PH has lost their small company motivation and drive, and are now just out to make a profit...
The level of difficulty to program a task depends on the complexity of the task, in part on the generation of the programming language, an the level of expertise of the programmer (sometimes it isn't even the expertise on programming per se but having an efficient thinking way, and understanding logical blocks and so on).
So, the programming is hard thing is not moot. But on the other side (and answering to Bitley too), i talked more about product life cycle and project scoping than about programming exactly because "programming is hard" is not the reason for everything.
As i said, programming is hard, its a very cerebral process, there are plenty of other professions that are as cerebral and hard as programming. I'm only saying there are 1000 other variables to it.
