Lindsey Bieda » The Importance of a Code Literate Culture: "Programming provides an additional creative outlet for many people. Writing code is literally writing. You are creating sentences and the general flow of writing a program should be rather similar to that of writing anything else.

Creating a program is simply an art with a different medium."
