Programming Perl (Wall, Christiansen, Orwant)
aka "the camel book".
993.laziness: the quality that makes you go to great effort to reduce the overall energy expenditure. It makes you write labor-saving programs that other people will find useful, and document what you wrote so you don't have to answer so many questions aboit it. Hence, the first great virtue of a programmer.
991. impatience: The anger you feel when the computer is being lazy. This makes you write programs that don't just react to your needs, but actually anticipate them.
991. hubris: Excessive pride, the sort of thing Zeus szaps you for. Also the quality that makes you write (and maintain) programs that other people won't want to say bad things about. Hence, the third great virtue of a programmer.
