recently it has seemed to me that the main trick of computer programming is to learning how to break your problem down into a series of subproblems that turn out to be the subject of entire careers and yearly conferences of various computer scientists

(and then glancing at their papers and deciding to implement the thing in the way you were going to implement it anyway 🤷🏻‍♀️)

@aparrish cuz why would computer scientists implement anything of their own :P

@aparrish That, and knowing how best to use the standard library for your favorite programming language so that you aren't constantly reinventing perfectly good wheels.
