Coding and Pasta: An Unlikely Match?
When we think of writing code for software, it may be difficult to imagine that programming instructions for a computer to execute has any correlation with a staple dish of Italian cuisine – pasta. Yet, computer programmers have found a way to explain how code is structured by using different types of pasta as the analogy – and makes perfect sense.
We recently discovered an excellent article which explains how different pasta types can represent different coding structures, offering programmers alike an easy way to distinguish between coding structures and the best ways of tackling them. From spaghetti to ravioli, macaroni to lasagne, we bet Italy’s founding fathers of pasta didn’t expect their beloved dish names to be thrown around in offices across the world to describe something seemingly completely different.
