Programming Puns

April 5, 2012

Though not strictly puns, I tried to make them sort-of funny:

- What are you doing on this bench with a bank slip and a marker?
- Benchmarking our transactions.

What’s “on” on Earth? The air conditional.

What do communists and functional programmers have in common? They hate classes.

“You shall not pass by reference”, said Gandalf to James Gosling.

I’ll create a programming language named obl. That way, when using a for-loop, I will be obl-iterating.

Why are “i”, “j” and “k” the most used letters for loop variables? Ask Dijkstra.

What’s common about basements and maven repositories? They hold jars.

I’ve written a movie about insects. Here’s the ant script.

- What are you doing with this bucket of paint at the construction site?
- Making the build green.

Write string concatenation in PHP on the dotted line.

A garbage collector joined Men in Black to help them with erasing memory.

I asked the Oracle what is my future, and it responded with ORA-27102: out of memory
