Linus Torvalds: “我不再是一名程序员了”

在最近于法国里昂举办的 Open Source Summit Europe 讨论会上,Linux 创始人 Linus Torvalds 讲述了他目前的工作以及他对于自己工作的看法。

Linus Torvalds 说:

“I don’t know coding at all anymore. Most of the code I write is in my e-mails. So somebody sends me a patch … I [reply with] pseudo code. I’m so used to editing patches now I sometimes edit patches and send out the patch without having ever tested it. I literally wrote it in the mail and say, ‘I think this is how it should be done,’ but this is what I do, I am not a programmer. “

(参考译文):

“我已经完全不知道怎么写代码了,我现在大都是在电子邮件里写代码。当有人发给我一个补丁的时候,我会用伪代码回复他,我通常是编辑并且回复一个补丁而不去测试它。我在邮件里写的都是文字表述,我会这么说:“我认为应该这么做。”这就是我所做的工作,我已经不是一名程序员了。”
