Programming Is Not for Everybody « Symbo1ics Ideas
It is rarely an invigorating social activity. A lot of time, it’s sitting in front of a computer screen, looking at a colorful text document, and thinking, and thinking, and typing, getting angry, and wondering why the hell you’re living a life sitting down.

From Ballistics to Programming - IEEE Spectrum
But there were no recruiting posters for one group of women whose work was absolutely essential to the war effort. Instead, they were recruited mainly by letters sent to colleges by the War Department. These were women being recruited not for their impressive biceps but for their prowess in math and engineering.
Their work was classified at the time, and that probably contributed to the fact that it has been almost entirely overlooked for more than 60 years now. Another reason, though, is that whatever light was shone on this corner of the war effort depicted these women as clerks, though in fact by the mid-1940s they had become the world’s first computer programmers.

Ars Technica: Nokia releases Qt 4.7 with terrific new mobile UI framework
Nokia's new Symbian^3 handsets, such as the N8, will ship with Qt 4.6 instead of Qt 4.7. This raised some concerns in my mind about potential fragmentation issues, because I was a bit worried that developers wouldn't be able to start using Qt Quick right away if Nokia ships millions of devices with an older version of the toolkit. Fortunately, Nokia seems to have the situation under control. During the NokiaWorld conference, I discussed this issue with Purnima Kochikar, Nokia's vice president of developer community.

She explained that Nokia intends to roll out Qt 4.7 to the first batch of the new Symbian^3 devices in a planned update. The second batch of the devices, she said, would likely ship with 4.7 preinstalled.
