re: What does a mathematician say to a developer? VIEW POST


Hello, fellow mathematician turned developer! Yes, I still find myself using math as a developer. Writing good tests feels very much like writing good proofs.


Hi, Isaac! Thank you for your comment! I have never looked at tests like that. Maybe, I will write them with another spirit with your approach in mind :)


Thanks for this insight, Issac. Don't know that I should call myself (even a former) mathematician; in the 70s I taught college mathematics courses at the 100 (freshman) level.

I do agree that the notion of 'proving' applies well in both areas.
