    I actually regard software development as a craft, much like carpentry or blacksmithing. It's a skill whereby science is applied for the purpose of creating a piece that meets a given need, with some opportunity for artistic expression within the bounds of the requirements of the piece. It's not science, and it's not an artistic pursuit.
