The Programmer’s Curse

It's Alive

Programmer’s Curse [proh-gram-er-s kurs] – When a professional programmer sees a problem they think “I can solve this by implementing ________”. They then go on to build something in a manner similar to a mad scientist in an old sci-fi movie.

It’s often associated with eccentric behavior, ingestion of caffinated beverages, late nights and repeated cursing during debugging because it’s “so close”.
