Men write code from Mars …

woman_codeand Women Write More Helpful Code from Venus, quoting the Wall Street Journal.

Women are more touchy-feely and considerate of those who will use the code later, she says. They’ll intersperse their code–those strings of instructions that result in nifty applications and programs–with helpful comments and directions, explaining why they wrote the lines the way they did and exactly how they did it.

So it is true. Javadoc was invented by a woman, because all Sun (planetary pun intended) guys were too stubborn to ask eachother for directions. If it wasn’t for women, we’d all be writing unindented lines of assembly. Bless them and their coding skills !
