Programmer as wizard, programmer as engineer
One immediate mistake we can make here is to believe that wizarding is somehow the sloppy, unprincipled, illegitimate version of engineering. Programmers can have good (if bitter) reasons for believing this, which we’ll get to in a minute. But on the face of it, wizarding is what programming should be most like. Wizarding is fun. Wizarding is pulling out 10 line script solutions to problems that seemed intractable to others.
