Op Google+ op het Life at Google account werd het onderstaande interview met een ontwikkelaar geplaatst. Verdere uitleg hierover is overbodig in dit geval, de tekst hieronder.
Our engineers work on all kinds of interesting projects, from Gmail to data centers to self-driving cars. We spoke to software engineer Taylor Santo, who developed our latest innovation, self-writing code.
I have a friend who works on the self-driving car project and heís always bragging about how easy it is to commute when the car does the work for him. One day, it occurred to meó itís one thing to save your effort and energy on the commute to work, but it would really be awesome to save your effort and energy while youíre AT work.
It was pretty simple to write actually. I just put a function within a function, a loop within a loop, copy-and-pasted a few times and bingo, I was done.
Itís been great now that Iím not spending my time at my desk programming. I have plenty of time to collaborate with teammates, attend talks and events on campus, go for a workout at the gym or try out a new cafe. Google always encourages employees to have a full life outside of the office and now I have tremendous work-life balance. Plus, self-writing code has really freed me up to pursue my favorite personal hobbyó coding.
Well no I...ummm...oh, man. Wow, I really coded myself into a corner here, didnít I? Oh well, I guess that just means Iíll have to put my coding hat back on and come up with another innovation!
