PureCodium - The God of Software Development

                                                                         

In Ancient times the Romans and Greeks created deities or Gods to worship to help them in their journey through life for both their personal lives but also as a group. From Mars to Venus, war and love they had Gods for everything. Lest we forget that the Romans did conquer most of the known world at the time their Gods may have had something to do with it!

Therefore, using their example I give you PureCodium, the God of software development. PureCodium is the main God but not the only god devoted to software development. The god of quality assurance and testing is Qualitanium. There could be other gods required for software project management, certain programming languages may need their own gods etc.

PureCodium is a planet in the Andromeda Galaxy. This is where PureCodium lives and reigns in a beautiful world constructed of perfect code. Let us worship PureCodium to inspire us to what code can be but remember if you offend PureCodium you may find things happen to you that you can’t explain like losing code, bad compiles, having to rewrite, and worse. All these things can be attributed to PureCodium not because it is his fault but because you have offended him. The problems are the natural consequence of offending your God.

You should give worship to PureCodium every work day. You should make sacrifices to him when things go wrong like helping someone out on a forum, documenting your functions, rereading a text book on the language you use. I’m sure you can think of more. Now you know why those bad things happen, go do something about it. By the way, if there are any artists out there that could visualize what PureCodium looks like, that would be cool. We could have a website with his details etc, other gods. Go forth and pure code.
