It is How Things Work

I liked this essay and I think it is a must read for every software professional. Here is a small snippet from Matt’s What Have You Tried?

it’s just how things work: you begin with a lack of understanding about a topic, and a need to solve a problem in that topic area. The honest, sustainable means of doing so is to improve your understanding. This is achieved by:

  1. Formulating a question which, when correctly answered, will improve your understanding in some way; then:
  2. Attempting to answer it.

Being active in a few forums, I can relate to the problem Matt is talking about.

Good essays/posts are a pleasure to read. When I find some, there is a strong desire to share. I just realized that I don’t have to always write an entire blog post to provide something of value.
