Poem: The Extroverted Engineer

Software

R in the Cloud

Train in R

The Extroverted Engineer

The residuals of my creativity,

are expressed in left brain poetry.

But when it comes to talking tough,

Numbers, above words,  is what I like to love.

The sheer elegance,

of clear concise code.

Compiled Swiftly,Executed flawlessly,

On a digital yellow brick road.

Numbers do not lie, People do.

I would rather write code,

Than dust my inter-personal skills for you.

And if you ponder,

think hard to understand

What is God’s good wonder,

drives this lonely man.

It is simple,

et tr’es elegante,

Simplicity of statistics,

is what we really want.

The inner child, stakes up an eccentric stance,

Prefers the joy of writing code, Than understand the complexities of fellow man.

    Hey Ajay,

    Nice poem. I love the part: I would rather write a code, than dust my inter-personal skills for you.
    Numbers don’t lie by themselves, but can be made to lie. There is quote in this context by Winston Churchill; don’t remember the exact quote.
    Seems you are a grad student somewhere in the US. Mind telling me you whereabouts. I am a grad student in Texas A&M, studying industrial engineering, and basically going the same way that you have – data analytics, algorithms (basically, numbers).

    [WORDPRESS HASHCASH] The poster sent us ‘0 which is not a hashcash value.
