Programming Atrophy


It’s stunning to me how stale one can become when they don’t code for a while.

I just put together a quick little something in Python for hitting a Google API, collecting results into an array, and then adding in some results from a dictionary query, and man…it took forever.

Repeating that task right now would take 10 minutes, and trying it again from scratch in a year would take a few hours. Weird.
