Our Users Our Users need us. Our Users entrust on us, their data, their operations, their systems and their lives. Our Users believe that we understand machines and machines languages better than them. Our Users are our co-developers. They help us develop better solutions, better products and better ourselves. We need Our Users more.
Our Machines Our Machines/Systems Always listen to Us. They don’t fail Us. We fail them. We fail them by our inability to express ourselves, to command them and put them into proper use. Its time to feel, think and act [code/configure] for them.
Our Code Code is inevitable. We need to “housekeep” and “reuse”. We would need to read code to write new code. Code is the only credible documentation we would have. Code will be written once and will be run anywhere, anytime and any N of times. Our Code is Our Power [Our Pride].

We, The Coders Pledge “We, software professionals, [coders and henceforth], know that our users need us, invest on us and co-develop us. Our machines listen to us and never fail us. Our code will reach, impact, serve and outlive us. Our processes and Our tools enable us. We acknowledge this power and own up the responsibility and the accountability too. We, the coders, take the pledge that we would assure clean and green code. ” (C) Lalatendu Rath, “We, The Coders”2008
